## Abstract

We evaluate American Electric Power prediction models with Trend and Paired T-Test1,2,3,4 and conclude that the AEP stock is predictable in the short/long term. According to price forecasts for (n+4 weeks) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to Sell AEP stock.

## Key Points

1. What is Markov decision process in reinforcement learning?
2. How do you pick a stock?
3. What is the best way to predict stock prices?

## AEP Target Price Prediction Modeling Methodology

We consider American Electric Power Stock Decision Process with Paired T-Test where A is the set of discrete actions of AEP 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(Paired T-Test)5,6,7= $\begin{array}{cccc}{p}_{a1}& {p}_{a2}& \dots & {p}_{1n}\\ & ⋮\\ {p}_{j1}& {p}_{j2}& \dots & {p}_{jn}\\ & ⋮\\ {p}_{k1}& {p}_{k2}& \dots & {p}_{kn}\\ & ⋮\\ {p}_{n1}& {p}_{n2}& \dots & {p}_{nn}\end{array}$ X R(Trend) X S(n):→ (n+4 weeks) $\begin{array}{l}\int {e}^{x}\mathrm{rx}\end{array}$

n:Time series to forecast

p:Price signals of AEP stock

j:Nash equilibria

k:Dominated move

a:Best response for target price

## AEP Stock Forecast (Buy or Sell) for (n+4 weeks)

Sample Set: Neural Network
Stock/Index: AEP American Electric Power
Time series to forecast n: 31 Aug 2022 for (n+4 weeks)

According to price forecasts for (n+4 weeks) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to Sell AEP 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

American Electric Power assigned short-term Ba3 & long-term B2 forecasted stock rating. We evaluate the prediction models Trend with Paired T-Test1,2,3,4 and conclude that the AEP stock is predictable in the short/long term. According to price forecasts for (n+4 weeks) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to Sell AEP stock.
