## Abstract

We evaluate Capital One prediction models with Transfer Learning (ML) and Ridge Regression1,2,3,4 and conclude that the COF 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 Hold COF stock.

## Key Points

1. Technical Analysis with Algorithmic Trading
2. What is a prediction confidence?
3. Can statistics predict the future? ## COF Target Price Prediction Modeling Methodology

We consider Capital One Stock Decision Process with Ridge Regression where A is the set of discrete actions of COF 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= $\begin{array}{cccc}{p}_{a1}& {p}_{a2}& \dots & {p}_{1n}\\ & ⋮\\ {p}_{j1}& {p}_{j2}& \dots & {p}_{jn}\\ & ⋮\\ {p}_{k1}& {p}_{k2}& \dots & {p}_{kn}\\ & ⋮\\ {p}_{n1}& {p}_{n2}& \dots & {p}_{nn}\end{array}$ X R(Transfer Learning (ML)) X S(n):→ (n+1 year) $∑ i = 1 n r i$

n:Time series to forecast

p:Price signals of COF stock

j:Nash equilibria

k:Dominated move

a:Best response for target price

## COF Stock Forecast (Buy or Sell) for (n+1 year)

Sample Set: Neural Network
Stock/Index: COF Capital One
Time series to forecast n: 03 Sep 2022 for (n+1 year)

According to price forecasts for (n+1 year) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to Hold COF 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.)

Z axis (Yellow to Green): *Technical Analysis%

## Conclusions

Capital One assigned short-term B3 & long-term B1 forecasted stock rating. We evaluate the prediction models Transfer Learning (ML) with Ridge Regression1,2,3,4 and conclude that the COF 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 Hold COF stock.
