Hi Daniel, although I agree with your calculations, I disagree with your answer and conclusion, mainly because of some statistics on historical data. As of November 10th, Google stock closed at $134.06, this means the stock price must increase 11.4% by December 31 this year (in 51 days). When considering the last 5 years of Google stock price data, we can see monthly returns range from +16.5% to -17.7%. Therefore, given Google’s price volatility, is it possible that the price will increase more than 11% in the last month and half left of the year. Also, considering the historical 51-days rolling return, it ranges between +31% and -29%. So, it is also possible for the stock to reach 150 before year end. Nevertheless, if we look at probability, during the last 5 years, only 12% of monthly returns have been higher than 11% and only 17% of the 51-day rolling returns have been higher than 11%. Then, even though it is possible, history says it is not than probable that this will happen by year end. Also, it is important to consider that stock prices are impossible to forecast and even harder in the short run.
