Price Predictions Project
Overview and Rationale
This assignment is designed to give you hands-on experience in performing both
regression and time series forecasting. You will be given a particular real-life time series,
and are asked to perform regression for predictions and to perform a time series
forecasting. In addition, you are asked to perform a sensitivity analysis by using different
parameter values and calculating measures of error for each of those values.
Course Outcomes
This assignment is directly linked to the following key learning outcomes from the course
syllabus:
CO1: Use descriptive, Heuristic and prescriptive analysis to drive business strategies
and actions
CO3: Analyze the role of analytics in supporting decision making for various other
stakeholder groups within and outside of your organization
CO5: Utilize applied analytics and definitions of measures of success to provide a
strategic analytic roadmap for an organization
Assignment Summary
Download stock prices of PEPSI stock (PEP) and 4 other stocks from Jan 2018 to Feb
2020 (courtesy of Yahoo Finance). Use the data to predict March 2020 prices (March 2,
2020 to March 6, 2020). Your prediction may be for one day or for all five days. This
project consists of four parts.
Project Instructions:
1. Perform exponential smoothing forecasts on the main stock prices to forecast the
price for March 2020. Use successive values of 0.15, 0.35, 0.55, and 0.75 for the
smoothing parameter α. Calculate the MSE of each forecast, Use the MSEs of your
forecasts to determine the value of α that has provided the most accurate forecast.
Describe qualitatively as to why such a value of α has yielded the most accurate
forecast.
exponential smoothing forecasts on the main stock prices to forecast the price for
March 2020. Use successive values of 0.15, 0.25, 0.45, and 0.85 for the trend
parameter β. Use the MSEs of your forecasts to determine the value of β that has
provided the most accurate forecast. Describe qualitatively as to why such a value of
β has yielded the most accurate forecast.
3. Perform a simple regression analysis of main stock prices versus periods (i.e., 1, 2,
3,…) to forecast the main stock value for March 2020. Calculate the MSE of this
forecast and compare its value with those obtained from parts (1) and (2) above.
The regression analysis should consist of the following additional details:
a. Coefficients of correlation and determination, and the interpretations of their
values
b. A histogram of the regression residuals, and the interpretation of its shape
c. A Chi-squared normality test of the residuals, and the interpretation of its
outputs
d. A Normal probability plot of the residuals
e. A scatter plot of residuals versus time to study their independency, and the
interpretation of the shape of the scatter plot
f. A scatter plot of residuals versus the predicted stock values to study their
homoscedasticity, and the interpretation of the shape of the scatter plot
4. Use 4 stock prices in addition to PEPSI to predict PEPSI prices in March 2020 (in
combination of the earlier methods in this assignment). Among the forecasting
methods or models that you have used in this project, what method has shown to be
actually the most accurate method in predicting the main stock price for March
2020?
