Buy or Sell: HSY Stock


With the up-gradation of technology and exploration of new machine learning models, the stock market data analysis has gained attention as these models provide a platform for businessman and traders to choose more profitable stocks. As these data are in large volumes and highly complex so a need of more efficient machine learning model for daily predictions is always looked upon. We evaluate Hershey's prediction models with Transfer Learning (ML) and Statistical Hypothesis Testing1,2,3,4 and conclude that the HSY stock is predictable in the short/long term. According to price forecasts for (n+3 month) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to Hold HSY stock.

  2. How do you pick a stock?
  3. How accurate is machine learning in stock market?

HSY Target Price Prediction Modeling Methodology

The prediction of a stock market direction may serve as an early recommendation system for short-term investors and as an early financial distress warning system for long-term shareholders. We consider Hershey's Stock Decision Process with Statistical Hypothesis Testing where A is the set of discrete actions of HSY 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

Conclusions

Hershey's assigned short-term B3 & long-term B2 forecasted stock rating. We evaluate the prediction models Transfer Learning (ML) with Statistical Hypothesis Testing1,2,3,4 and conclude that the HSY stock is predictable in the short/long term. According to price forecasts for (n+3 month) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to Hold HSY stock.
