Organizations have been collecting data for decades, building massive data warehouses in which to store the data. Even though this data is available, very few of these organizations have been able to realize the actual value stored in it. The question these organizations are asking is how to extract meaningful data and uncover patterns and relationship from their databases. This paper presents a study of regression analysis for use in stock price prediction. Data were obtained from the daily official list of the prices of all shares traded on the stock exchange published by the Nigerian Stock Exchange using banking sector of Nigerian economy with three banks namely: First Bank of Nigeria Plc, Zenith Bank Plc, and Skye Bank Plc to build a database.
