R Studio Stock Analysis

Siddharth is an upcoming first-year undergraduate student from India. He is interested in Computer Science and Mathematics and decided to take up a mentorship program on R Studio Stock Analysis.

Siddharth has recently completed his high school studies (top 10% of his class across all subjects) and is soon to begin his undergraduate studies where he will be pursuing Computer Science.

Scope of the program (R Studio Stock Analysis)

  • Financial modeling of equity prices in the Indian Stock Market and study fundamental papers on the Capital Asset Pricing Model.
  • Apply case study methods to test individual stocks for consistency with the CAPM model, and to evaluate relative risk of individual stocks to that of the overall market.
  • To employ methods of significance testing using p-values to measure the strength of evidence in specific tests.
  • To understand how empirical results can be explained by known features of the Indian equity market (e.g., negative alphas associated with companies in financial difficulty; high volatility in higher-risk sectors.

What challenges did he face?

  • He would like to start preparing for university coursework since he has just graduated high school
  • He would like to deep dive into further mathematical concepts to analyze Indian stock market

How did our program help him?

  • Our mentor worked hard with the student in using R Studio for stock analysis to plot different types of graphs such as time series and clustering.
  • Our mentor will be happy to write a letter of recommendation for the student for his undergraduate application.

Matched professor:

A professor teaching Statistics and Financial Mathematics in MIT. He has been providing consulting services in financial and statistical analytics to a wide range of institutions through his company.

Siddharth fully met my expectations — he always came to our sessions well prepared and proactive in the research work. He is a very quick thinker and his optimism and enthusiasm make it very enjoyable to work with him.
