Question

ABC stock is currently trading at $100. In the next period, the
price will either go up by 15% or down by 10%. The risk-free rate
of interest over the period is 5%. Consider a call and a put option
with $100 strike price with one-year maturity. Which of the
following statement is ** false** based on one
period binomial option pricing model?

choices:

The synthetic call would include borrowing $48.86 at risk-free rate

The synthetic put would include investing $41.62 at risk-free rate

The synthetic call would include 0.6 unit of long underlying asset

The synthetic put would include 0.6 unit of short underlying asset

Answer #1

Answer : A - the systematic call would include borrowing $48.86 at risk free rate.

Explanation :

S0 = 100

S(head) = 115 S(tail) = 90

If call option bought, result would be,

S(head) = 15 S(tail) = 0 ( because option will not be exercised)

Value =

(Minus)

Answer

=

Borrowing =

115(0.6) + B (1.05) = 15

B(1.05) = 0.6

B = 51.43

Borrowing require $51.43.

Hence 1st statement is wrong.

Please grant (?) if this answe is helpful.

A stock is currently trading at 50. The risk free interest rate
is 4%. In one year, analysts believe that share price will either
be 58 or 36.

method, find the value of a 1-year Put option with strike price
42.
b) What is the intrinsic value of the option? The time
value?

maturity be?

Consider the following scenario: The price of a stock currently
trading at $80 can go up by 10% or down by 15% per period for two
periods. The risk-free rate is 3% p.a. (continuous compounding). A
European put option expiring in 2-years has a strike price of $77.

1. Luther Industries is currently trading for $28 per share. The
stock pays no dividends. A one-year European put option on Luther
with a strike price of $30 is currently trading for $2.55. If the
risk-free interest rate is 6% per year, compute the price of a
one-year European call option on Luther with a strike price of
$30.
The price of one-year European call option on Luther
with a strike price $30 is ______$ (round to four
decimal places)....

A stock price is currently $50. It is known that at the end of 3
months it will be either $50 or $48. The risk-free interest rate is
10% per annum with continuous compounding. What is the value of a
3-month European put option with a strike price of $49? How about a
6-month European call price? (Hint: 2 period binomial option
pricing)

This is two period American put option model. Underlying asset
price at current time is $100 and u(up factor in the binomial tree)
is 1.05 and d(down factor in the binomial tree) is 0.95. Exercise
price is $105 and risk free rate is 0.02%
what is the put option price at current time?
what is the time value of put option and current time?
is the put option in-the-money, at-the-money, or out-of-the
money?

In a one-period binomial model, assume that the current stock
price is $100, and that it will rise to $110 or fall to $90 after
one month. If the risk-free rate is 0.1668% per month in simple
terms, what is the price of a 97–strike one-month put option?
A. $3.16
B. $3.44
C. $3.59
D. $3.67

Current stock price of underlying asset = $80
Standard deviation of returns of underlying asset = 30%

with the exercise price of $50 is currently trading at $9.14. The
risk-free rate is 7.5% and the hedge ratio is 5/7. Calculate
numerical values of Smax and Smin.
