In recent years there has been a significant growth of interest in the incorporation of historical series of variables related to stock prediction into mathematical models or computational algorithms in order to generate predictions or indications about expected price movements. We evaluate AJ BELL PLC prediction models with Modular Neural Network (Financial Sentiment Analysis) and Polynomial Regression1,2,3,4 and conclude that the LON:AJB 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 Hold LON:AJB stock.

## Key Points

1. Is it better to buy and sell or hold?
2. Short/Long Term Stocks
3. Can machine learning predict? ## LON:AJB Target Price Prediction Modeling Methodology

Prediction of future movement of stock prices has always been a challenging task for the researchers. While the advocates of the efficient market hypothesis (EMH) believe that it is impossible to design any predictive framework that can accurately predict the movement of stock prices, there are seminal work in the literature that have clearly demonstrated that the seemingly random movement patterns in the time series of a stock price can be predicted with a high level of accuracy. We consider AJ BELL PLC Stock Decision Process with Polynomial Regression where A is the set of discrete actions of LON:AJB 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
