Stock market prediction is a major exertion in the field of finance and establishing businesses. Stock market is totally uncertain as the prices of stocks keep fluctuating on a daily basis because of numerous factors that influence it. One of the traditional ways of predicting stock prices was by using only historical data. But with time it was observed that other factors such as peoples' sentiments and other news events occurring in and around the country affect the stock market, for e.g. national elections, natural calamity etc.** We evaluate Valvoline prediction models with Multi-Instance Learning (ML) and ElasticNet Regression ^{1,2,3,4} and conclude that the VVV 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 VVV stock.**

## VVV Target Price Prediction Modeling Methodology

Stock market investment strategies are complex and rely on an evaluation of vast amounts of data. In recent years, machine learning techniques have increasingly been examined to assess whether they can improve market forecasting when compared with traditional approaches. The objective for this study is to identify directions for future machine learning stock market prediction research based upon a review of current literature. We consider Valvoline Stock Decision Process with ElasticNet Regression where A is the set of discrete actions of VVV 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

Valvoline assigned short-term Ba1 & long-term B1 forecasted stock rating.** We evaluate the prediction models Multi-Instance Learning (ML) with ElasticNet Regression ^{1,2,3,4} and conclude that the VVV 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 VVV stock.**
