Yahoo Stock Forecast: An Algorithmic Analysis (YHOO)

Yahoo Stock Forecast

I Know First supplies financial services, mainly through stock forecasts via their predictive algorithm. The algorithm incorporates a 15-year database, and utilizes it to predict the flow of money across 2000 markets. The self-learning algorithm uses artificial intelligence, predictive models based on artificial neural networks, and genetic algorithms to predict money movements within various markets.

The algorithm produces a forecast with a signal and a predictability indicator. The signal is the number in the middle of the box. The predictability is the number at the bottom of the box. At the top, a specific asset is identified. This format is consistent across all predictions. The middle number is indicative of strength and direction, not a price target. The bottom number, the predictability, signifies a confidence level.

Long and Short Tech 1 Year

I Know First has had success predicting the movement of Yahoo’s stock price in the past. In this one-year forecast from June 30th, Yahoo had a strong bullish signal strength of 87.59 and a predictability indicator of 0.19. In accordance with the algorithm’s prediction, the stock price increased 14.72% during that time.

I Know First published a bullish article on Yahoo, a technology company offering search and content on mobile and desktop devices, on Seeking Alpha. Having explained how I Know First’s algorithm works, it is worthwhile to see if the algorithm agrees with the bullish fundamental analysis of the company. The three-month and one-year forecasts for Yahoo are included.

Yahoo is among the top stock picks for both time horizons. The stock has a strong, bullish signal for both, indicating that the stock is currently very undervalued. Over the predicted time horizons, the stock price will rebound and continue climbing, which is in agreement with the fundamental analysis. The completion of the Alibaba spinoff alone makes the current price way too low, and the performance of the core business will begin improving before the end of the year.

Positive signal strength does not mean investors should automatically buy the stock. Dr. Roitman, who created the algorithm, created rules for entry for a stock such as Yahoo. Using this trading strategy, an investor should buy a stock if the last 5 signal strength’s average is positive and if the last closing price is above the 5-day moving average price. When both of these conditions are met, it is a good time to initiate a position in the stock.
