Question 9 (1 point)

You write a short call option giving the purchaser the right to buy 100 shares of Garrett Corporation for a premium of $4,500. The strike price of the option is $45 and the final stock price is $250. What is your profit or loss?

Answer #1

**Solution 8:**

Since the final stock price is higher then the strike price, therefore the purchaser of right to sell will not exercise the option.

Hence Profit of short put option = Amount of premium received = $3,400

**Solution 9:**

Since the final stock price is higher than the strike price, therefore purchaser of right to buy will exercise the call option. Therefore,

Loss on Short Call option = Loss due to stock price - Premium received = ($250-$45)*100 - $4500

= $20500- $4500 = $16,000 loss
