speculation: a hypothesis that has been formed by speculating or conjecturing (usually with little hard evidence); "speculations about the outcome of the election"; "he dismissed it as mere conjecture"

an educated guess or opinion; a hypothesis
A conjecture is a statement which, although much evidence can be found to support it, has not been proved to be either true or false.
A thought about the future that falls short of a prediction. A low probability is implied: a conjecture is something that seems unlikely to happen, though perhaps desirable.
