Project: Comparison of Different Distributions for Stock Price Projections

Wolfram|Alpha assumes a log-normal distribution for the description of stock prices’ behavior in order to make projections. For this project, I used methods implemented in Mathematica for probability distributions fitting and applied them to stock prices together with a measure of the relative goodness of fit, using Akaike information criterion (AIC) as a means for model selection.
