When should you buy or sell a stock? (SMG Stock Forecast)


Abstract

We evaluate Scotts Miracle-Gro Company prediction models with Modular Neural Network (Market Direction Analysis) and Chi-Square1,2,3,4 and conclude that the SMG stock is predictable in the short/long term. According to price forecasts for (n+1 year) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to Hold SMG stock.


Keywords: SMG, Scotts Miracle-Gro Company, stock forecast, machine learning based prediction, risk rating, buy-sell behaviour, stock analysis, target price analysis, options and futures.

Key Points

  1. Investment Risk
  2. What is a prediction confidence?
  3. Should I buy stocks now or wait amid such uncertainty?

SMG Target Price Prediction Modeling Methodology

We consider Scotts Miracle-Gro Company Stock Decision Process with Chi-Square where A is the set of discrete actions of SMG 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(Chi-Square)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(Modular Neural Network (Market Direction Analysis)) X S(n):→ (n+1 year) S = s 1 s 2 s 3

n:Time series to forecast

p:Price signals of SMG stock

j:Nash equilibria

k:Dominated move

a:Best response for target price
