With the up-gradation of technology and exploration of new machine learning models, the stock market data analysis has gained attention as these models provide a platform for businessman and traders to choose more profitable stocks. As these data are in large volumes and highly complex so a need of more efficient machine learning model for daily predictions is always looked upon. We evaluate BARR (A.G.) PLC prediction models with Modular Neural Network (Market News Sentiment Analysis) and ElasticNet Regression1,2,3,4 and conclude that the LON:BAG stock is predictable in the short/long term. According to price forecasts for (n+3 month) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to Hold LON:BAG stock.

## Key Points

1. What is prediction model?
2. Buy, Sell and Hold Signals
3. How do predictive algorithms actually work? ## LON:BAG Target Price Prediction Modeling Methodology

Stock prediction is a very hot topic in our life. However, in the early time, because of some reasons and the limitation of the device, only a few people had the access to the study. Thanks to the rapid development of science and technology, in recent years more and more people are devoted to the study of the prediction and it becomes easier and easier for us to make stock prediction by using different ways now, including machine learning, deep learning and so on. We consider BARR (A.G.) PLC Stock Decision Process with ElasticNet Regression where A is the set of discrete actions of LON:BAG 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
