Should You Buy, Sell, or Hold? (AZN Stock Forecast)


Abstract

We evaluate AstraZeneca prediction models with Transductive Learning (ML) and Linear Regression1,2,3,4 and conclude that the AZN stock is predictable in the short/long term. According to price forecasts for (n+16 weeks) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to Sell AZN stock.


Keywords: AZN, AstraZeneca, stock forecast, machine learning based prediction, risk rating, buy-sell behaviour, stock analysis, target price analysis, options and futures.

Key Points

  1. Buy, Sell and Hold Signals
  2. Is it better to buy and sell or hold?
  3. Can neural networks predict stock market?

AZN Target Price Prediction Modeling Methodology

We consider AstraZeneca Stock Decision Process with Linear Regression where A is the set of discrete actions of AZN 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(Linear 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(Transductive Learning (ML)) X S(n):→ (n+16 weeks) i = 1 n r i

n:Time series to forecast

p:Price signals of AZN stock

j:Nash equilibria

k:Dominated move

a:Best response for target price
