Since 1965, retail investors frequently made large capital reallocation at the size and value factor level through mutual funds. These flows generated large price movements that reverse in the subsequent 1-2 years, explaining around 30\% of Fama-French size and value factor return variation. I show evidence that slow-moving capital contributes to slow reversion of these price pressures: most institutional investors do not trade against the flow-induced price dislocations. Somewhat surprisingly, the main liquidity provider are companies buying/issuing their own stocks, but companies respond slowly. Overall, the paper demonstrates that price pressures can explain large variation in asset prices due to slow-moving capital.
