Past three years stock Price Pattern of HUL

HUL Price Pattern (Jan’06-Jul’06)

HUL Price Pattern (Jul’06-Feb’07)

HUL Price Pattern (Mar’07-Sep’07)

HUL Price Pattern (Oct’07-May’08)

HUL Price Pattern (May’08-Dec’08)

Computation of lag-1 and lag-2 correlation coefficient and R-Square

For HUL

R^2 Lag-1 Correlation -0.02596 0.000674

Lag-2 Correlation

-0.0338

0.001142

For Index R^2 Lag-1 Correlation -0.02568 0.00066

Lag-2 Correlation

0.085838

0.007368

Computation of lag-1 and lag-2 correlation coefficient and R-Square

 Coefficient of correlation:

It varies between +1 and -1. If it is positively correlated that means the stock price is moving in the same direction and vice-versa.

Lag-1 Correlation: It explains the relationship of today's price with yesterday’s price,
since lag-1 = -0.025959 which means today’s price is moving in the opposite direction of the yesterday’s price but the magnitude is very low.

Lag-2 Correlation: It describes the today’s price with day before yesterday’s price,
Since lag-2 = -0.033795 which means today’s price is negatively correlated with day before yesterday’s price with a very low magnitude.

Significance of the correlation coefficient and its relevance in reliable prediction of future prices



In this case the coefficient of correlation is (–ve) and is not significant so, we cannot use the above relationship for reliable future prediction, since its magnitude is very low , most of the times our future prediction may not be true. Therefore, we cannot use it for future price prediction.

 R-Square (Coefficient of Determination):

R-Square indicates the strength of relationship, if it is >50%, we can say that today's price is dependent on yesterdays price therefore, we will be in position to forecast. If it is <50%, then majority of the times forecasting may not be correct and hence we can say our market is efficient market. In this case R-Square is significantly less than 50%, we can say that today’s price does not depend on yesterday’s price because there is very weak relationship between the two prices.
