H&R Block Stock Forecast, Price & Rating (HRB)


Abstract

We evaluate H&R Block prediction models with Modular Neural Network (Market News Sentiment Analysis) and Lasso Regression1,2,3,4 and conclude that the HRB stock is predictable in the short/long term. According to price forecasts for (n+8 weeks) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to SellHold HRB stock.

HRB Target Price Prediction Modeling Methodology

We consider H&R Block Stock Decision Process with Lasso Regression where A is the set of discrete actions of HRB 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(Lasso 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(Modular Neural Network (Market News Sentiment Analysis)) X S(n):→ (n+8 weeks) i = 1 n a i

n:Time series to forecast

p:Price signals of HRB stock

j:Nash equilibria

k:Dominated move

a:Best response for target price
