## Abstract

**We evaluate Centerpoint Energy prediction models with Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) and Factor ^{1,2,3,4} and conclude that the CNP 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 CNP stock.**

## CNP Target Price Prediction Modeling Methodology

We consider Centerpoint Energy Stock Decision Process with Factor where A is the set of discrete actions of CNP 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(Factor)

^{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(Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD)) X S(n):→ (n+3 month) $R=\left(\begin{array}{ccc}1& 0& 0\\ 0& 1& 0\\ 0& 0& 1\end{array}\right)$

n:Time series to forecast

p:Price signals of CNP stock

j:Nash equilibria

k:Dominated move

a:Best response for target price

## CNP Stock Forecast (Buy or Sell) for (n+3 month)

**Sample Set:**Neural Network

**Stock/Index:**CNP Centerpoint Energy

**Time series to forecast n: 01 Sep 2022**for (n+3 month)

**According to price forecasts for (n+3 month) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to Hold CNP 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.)

## Conclusions

Centerpoint Energy assigned short-term Ba3 & long-term B1 forecasted stock rating.** We evaluate the prediction models Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) with Factor ^{1,2,3,4} and conclude that the CNP 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 CNP stock.**
