The essential of a random walk is the changes of stocks are irregular following Brownian movement; the path of price changes is unpredictable. Mentioning prediction of the future, an autoregressive time-series is a significant and effective model. For a random walk without drift, however, standard regression analysis on the time-series is unavailable,...

...Random Walks in Stock Market Prices
FOR MANY YEARS economists, statisticians, and teach-
ers of finance have been interested in developing and testing models of stock price behavior. One
important model that has evolved from this research is the theory of random walks. This theory casts serious doubt on many other methods for describing and predicting stock price behavior
methods that have considerable popularity outside the academic world. For example, we...
