this forms the fundamental assumption of the "random walk" theory of the stock market, which has been verified many times over the years.

To a certain (high) degree of approximation. The very existence of hedge funds disproves (by countereaxmple) the assumption that information has already been discounted in the stock prices.

I was going to pick a nit on the term "random walk" but I'll refrain. If you're using it in a nontechnical sense there's no nit to pick.
