In this paper a high quality disaggregate data base consisting of the stock prices of 40 companies quoted on the UK stock exchange is analyzed using recently developed techniques from the time series literature. In particular, unit root and cointegration techniques are used to test the concept of static efficiency for individual share prices. Amongst the results reported in the paper is the finding that disaggregate stock prices are cointegrated which is interpreted as a violation of static efficiency.
