## Abstract

**We evaluate Norfolk Southern prediction models with RC Phase Shift Oscillator and ANOVA ^{1,2,3,4} and conclude that the NSC stock is predictable in the short/long term. **

**According to price forecasts for (n+6 month) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to Hold NSC stock.**

## NSC Target Price Prediction Modeling Methodology

We consider Norfolk Southern Stock Decision Process with ANOVA where A is the set of discrete actions of NSC stock holders, F is the set of discrete states, P : S × F × S → R is the transition probability distribution, R : S × F → R is the reaction function, and γ ∈ [0, 1] is a move factor for expectation.^{1,2,3,4}

F(ANOVA)

^{5,6,7}= $\begin{array}{cccc}{p}_{\mathrm{a}1}& {p}_{\mathrm{a}2}& \dots & {p}_{1n}\\ & \vdots \\ {p}_{j1}& {p}_{j2}& \dots & {p}_{jn}\\ & \vdots \\ {p}_{k1}& {p}_{k2}& \dots & {p}_{kn}\\ & \vdots \\ {p}_{n1}& {p}_{n2}& \dots & {p}_{nn}\end{array}$ X R(RC Phase Shift Oscillator) X S(n):→ (n+6 month) $\begin{array}{l}\int {e}^{x}\mathrm{rx}\end{array}$

n:Time series to forecast

p:Price signals of NSC stock

j:Nash equilibria

k:Dominated move

a:Best response for target price

## NSC Stock Forecast (Buy or Sell) for (n+6 month)

**Sample Set:**Neural Network

**Stock/Index:**NSC Norfolk Southern

**Time series to forecast n: 31 Aug 2022**for (n+6 month)

**According to price forecasts for (n+6 month) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to Hold NSC stock.**

**X axis: *Likelihood%** (The higher the percentage value, the more likely the event will occur.)

**Y axis: *Potential Impact%** (The higher the percentage value, the more likely the price will deviate.)

**Z axis (Yellow to Green): *Technical Analysis%**

## Conclusions

Norfolk Southern assigned short-term Baa2 & long-term Ba3 forecasted stock rating.** We evaluate the prediction models RC Phase Shift Oscillator with ANOVA ^{1,2,3,4} and conclude that the NSC stock is predictable in the short/long term.**

**According to price forecasts for (n+6 month) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to Hold NSC stock.**
