O is becoming more volatile overall. In comparison, the SP500 index is seeing a rise in volatility. During the last three months, there was a significant surge in O's volatility from 2 Oct, 2018 to 2 Nov, 2018. While there was a significant surge in the SP500 index's volatility from 25 Sep, 2018 to 29 Oct, 2018.

Advanced/professional short-term investors should note that O has significant positive skewness in it's return distribution. This indicates that investors can expect O to recover from drawdowns quickly. Which makes O a good candidate for investing on short-term bullish trends or even counter-trends hoping for a pull-back.

O has more chance of extreme outcomes than the SP500 index. Therefore, O must receive a lower allocation than SP500 in your portfolio. SP500 index usually has shorter drawdown period than O.

On a general note (since you are interested in O), three instruments that are extremely volatile are OPNT, IMTE and VIPS. They must all be evaluated prudently and investors are better off avoiding them at the moment.
