Cardinality linear decay in

lets say I've got date column with increasing date (populated as sysdate) , in point of time I created index (compute statistics) on that column without histogram (only min/max value) .
So if I dont regather stats on that column, my cardinality estimate will go lower day after day till value of 1 , right (because out of linear decay) ?
