I have no idea which method is ‘best’, but there is a good introduction to the main approaches in the book “data mining with r – learning with case studies” by Luis Torgo (I might have the authors name wrong). It is a great starting point of looking at the algorithms used, building simulations with them and evaluating their performance and then productionalizing the winning one.

It is not an exhaustive text by any means, but a great introduction. After this book, there are several others out there that are solely focused on stock forecasts.

! You should check that the Cumulative Proportion of Variance of the number of dimensions you decide to take is enough (about 80%: it depends on the field). On R, you clearly see that with the “summary” command, where you see the proportion of variance due to each component. In a few words, you can reduce data if you do not lose too much information: so if you decide to take the two principal components, their cumulative proportion of variance should be enough in order to well represent the original data set. Of course the cumulative proportion reaches 100% only if you take all the dimensions, but very often only a couple of them are necessary to explain a big part of the original data. Hope this helps!
