Visibility

Somewhat informal; the extent to which a future situation is predictable. Low visibility means that analysts have little confidence in their predictions, while high visibility means the opposite. Low visibility may occur because of an unexpected fluctuation in the market or uncertainty in the macroeconomic situation. Visibility is often used with regard to upcoming sales or earnings figures for a given quarter. See also: Volatility.
