[LH] Laboratory Corp. of America Hldgs. - Naive Bayes Classifier

Data updated 2024-Jul-17 (Wednesday)

  Note: Naive Bayes Classifier connects financial statement metrics with subsequent stock performance post earnings announcements for Laboratory Corp. of America Hldgs. [NYSE:LH]. This popular learning technique categorizes user-selected financial metrics and the subsequent stock performance into bins/buckets and considers conditional probabilities in those situations in order to predict performance buckets for the test cases (e.g. most recent quarter).

Model Setup
  Metric Calculation
Configure statement metrics above in any order with calculation options (e.g. select Quarter-on-Quarter change of Operating Margin if you consider it relevant to determining stock performance for LH)

Choose outcome to compare against (i.e. absolute performance or relative performance benchmarked to broader market)

Classifier predictions for the test set (dates held back from the training set) based on metrics selected
Date Underperformance Outperformance Predicted Actual
2023-Apr-25 3.4% 1.4% Underperform Outperform
2023-Jul-27 3.4% 1.1% Underperform Underperform
Prior probabilities for underperformance (50.0%) and outperformance (50.0%) are used as initial guesses for the classifier
