Stock price range forecast for the week

Assuming a normal distribution of prices (bell curve model) and a standard deviation of one, based on its implied volatility of ~39.11%, Marathon Oil’s stock is expected to close between $16.30 and $14.62, after seven calendar days. Based on the standard statistical formula, Marathon Oil’s stock will stay in this range ~68% of the time.

Other upstream stocks

As of March 17, 2017, upstream peers California Resources (CRC), Occidental Petroleum (OXY), and Southwestern Energy (SWN) have implied volatilities of ~77.5%, ~20.8%, and ~54.3%, respectively. The SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) has an implied volatility of ~10.8%.

Investors should note, however, that implied volatility only shows the market’s opinion of the stock’s potential moves—it can’t forecast direction. Implied volatility is derived from an option pricing model, which means that the data is theoretical in nature and that there is no guarantee that these estimations will be correct.
