Impact of many factors on the stock prices makes the stock prediction a difficult and highly complicated task. In this paper, machine learning techniques have been applied for the stock price prediction in order to overcome such difficulties. In the implemented work, five models have been developed and their performances are compared in predicting the stock market trends.** We evaluate Nike prediction models with Supervised Machine Learning (ML) and Wilcoxon Sign-Rank Test ^{1,2,3,4} and conclude that the NKE 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 NKE stock.**

## NKE Target Price Prediction Modeling Methodology

The prediction of a stock market direction may serve as an early recommendation system for short-term investors and as an early financial distress warning system for long-term shareholders. We consider Nike Stock Decision Process with Wilcoxon Sign-Rank Test where A is the set of discrete actions of NKE 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}

## Conclusions

Nike assigned short-term Baa2 & long-term B2 forecasted stock rating.** We evaluate the prediction models Supervised Machine Learning (ML) with Wilcoxon Sign-Rank Test ^{1,2,3,4} and conclude that the NKE 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 NKE stock.**
