Prediction of stocks is complicated by the dynamic, complex, and chaotic environment of the stock market. Many studies predict stock price movements using deep learning models. Although the attention mechanism has gained popularity recently in neural machine translation, little focus has been devoted to attention-based deep learning models for stock prediction. We evaluate OXFORD NANOPORE TECHNOLOGIES PLC prediction models with Modular Neural Network (DNN Layer) and Multiple Regression1,2,3,4 and conclude that the LON:ONT 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 Hold LON:ONT stock.

## Key Points

1. Game Theory
2. Is Target price a good indicator?
3. Can machine learning predict? ## LON:ONT Target Price Prediction Modeling Methodology

Security indices are the main tools for evaluation of the status of financial markets. Moreover, a main part of the economy of any country is constituted of investment in stock markets. Therefore, investors could maximize the return of investment if it becomes possible to predict the future trend of stock market with appropriate methods. The nonlinearity and nonstationarity of financial series make their prediction complicated. This study seeks to evaluate the prediction power of machine-learning models in a stock market. We consider OXFORD NANOPORE TECHNOLOGIES PLC Stock Decision Process with Multiple Regression where A is the set of discrete actions of LON:ONT 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
