## Abstract

We evaluate Rolls-Royce Holdings prediction models with Transductive Learning (ML) and Wilcoxon Sign-Rank Test1,2,3,4 and conclude that the RR 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 RR stock.

## Key Points

1. What are the most successful trading algorithms?
2. Should I buy stocks now or wait amid such uncertainty?
3. How useful are statistical predictions? ## RR Target Price Prediction Modeling Methodology

We consider Rolls-Royce Holdings Stock Decision Process with Wilcoxon Sign-Rank Test where A is the set of discrete actions of RR 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(Wilcoxon Sign-Rank Test)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(Transductive Learning (ML)) X S(n):→ (n+8 weeks) $\stackrel{\to }{S}=\left({s}_{1},{s}_{2},{s}_{3}\right)$

## RR Stock Forecast (Buy or Sell) for (n+8 weeks)

Sample Set: Neural Network
Stock/Index: RR Rolls-Royce Holdings
Time series to forecast n: 05 Sep 2022 for (n+8 weeks)

According to price forecasts for (n+8 weeks) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to Hold RR 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

Rolls-Royce Holdings assigned short-term Ba3 & long-term B1 forecasted stock rating. We evaluate the prediction models Transductive Learning (ML) with Wilcoxon Sign-Rank Test1,2,3,4 and conclude that the RR 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 RR stock.
