Abstract: The return of property stocks is one of the main research areas in property stock performance. This work have tried to compare the forecast of Singapore property stock returns by neural networks with that by traditional regressions using accounting ratios as input variables. Based on the results, this work supports: accounting ratios can serve as leading indicators of stock returns in the next year; classification models (logit regression models and logit neural networks) can outperform point estimation models (OLS regression models and OLS neural networks) for problems at hand; logit neural networks can outperform all other three alternatives. This work is the first to use neural network to examine the performance of Singapore property stocks.
