## Abstract

**We evaluate Synchrony Financial prediction models with Transductive Learning (ML) and Multiple Regression ^{1,2,3,4} and conclude that the SYF 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 Hold SYF stock.**

## SYF Target Price Prediction Modeling Methodology

We consider Synchrony Financial Stock Decision Process with Multiple Regression where A is the set of discrete actions of SYF 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 Î³ ∈ [0, 1] is a move factor for expectation.^{1,2,3,4}

F(Multiple Regression)

^{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(Transductive Learning (ML)) X S(n):→ (n+4 weeks) $\sum _{i=1}^{n}\left({a}_{i}\right)$

n:Time series to forecast

p:Price signals of SYF stock

j:Nash equilibria

k:Dominated move

a:Best response for target price

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

**Sample Set:**Neural Network

**Stock/Index:**SYF Synchrony Financial

**Time series to forecast n: 04 Sep 2022**for (n+4 weeks)

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

Synchrony Financial assigned short-term B3 & long-term Baa2 forecasted stock rating.** We evaluate the prediction models Transductive Learning (ML) with Multiple Regression ^{1,2,3,4} and conclude that the SYF 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 Hold SYF stock.**
