Stock price prediction has been an important research theme both academically and practically. Various methods to predict stock prices have been studied until now. The feature that explains the stock price by a cross-section analysis is called a "factor" in the field of finance. Many empirical studies in finance have identified which stocks having features in the cross-section relatively increase and which decrease in terms of price. Recently, stock price prediction methods using machine…

Combining Dimensionality Reduction with Neural Networks for Realized Volatility Forecasting
This paper combined Bayesian Model Averaging, Principal Component Analysis, Non-negative Matrix Factorization, and Least Absolute Shrinkage and Selection Operator with hybrid artificial neutral networks to forecast realized volatility and showed that reduced models were able to perform in a similar way or even outperforms the compared full models in terms of predictive accuracy.
Distributed identification of heterogeneous treatment effects
A distributed algorithm based on the alternating direction method of multipliers, which can deal with large-scale data, and perform well in identifying subgroups if there exist sufficient samples in a whole distributed storage system but not necessarily in every computing node is proposed.
Unsupervised feature extraction with convolutional autoencoder with application to daily stock market prediction
An unsupervised feature extraction method with convolutional autoencoder (CAE) with application to daily stock market prediction is proposed, which has a higher prediction than traditional models.
How Do We Predict Stock Returns in the Cross-Section with Machine Learning?
Investigation of how the difference in problem settings such as problem definition and data preprocessing affects the performance of stock return prediction shows that the performance varies depending on problem settings regardless of the prediction models.
