Can we predict stock market using machine learning? (TGT Stock Forecast)


Abstract

We evaluate Target Corporation prediction models with Transductive Learning (ML) and Ridge Regression1,2,3,4 and conclude that the TGT stock is predictable in the short/long term. According to price forecasts for (n+1 year) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to Sell TGT stock.


Keywords: TGT, Target Corporation, stock forecast, machine learning based prediction, risk rating, buy-sell behaviour, stock analysis, target price analysis, options and futures.

Key Points

  1. How do you know when a stock will go up or down?
  2. Operational Risk
  3. Why do we need predictive models?

TGT Target Price Prediction Modeling Methodology

We consider Target Corporation Stock Decision Process with Ridge Regression where A is the set of discrete actions of TGT 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(Ridge Regression)5,6,7= p a 1 p a 2 p 1 n p j 1 p j 2 p j n p k 1 p k 2 p k n p n 1 p n 2 p n n X R(Transductive Learning (ML)) X S(n):→ (n+1 year) i = 1 n a i

n:Time series to forecast

p:Price signals of TGT stock

j:Nash equilibria

k:Dominated move

a:Best response for target price
