Abstract:     
We study how limited attention and inefficient risk sharing relate to stock prices deviating from a (random walk) efficient price. The Duffie (2010) inattention model is extended to include multiple investor types with varying attention levels. The model’s predictions are tested with New York Stock Exchange data. Eight percent of a stock’s daily idiosyncratic return variance and 25% of its monthly idiosyncratic variance are due to transitory price changes. The trading variables explain 32% of these changes. The model further explains contemporaneous, lead, and lag correlations among returns and the trading by institutions, individuals, and market makers.
