Question

A stock has a price of 100. It is expected to pay a dividend of $3 per share at year-end. An at-the-money European put option with 1 year maturity sells for $8. If the annual interest rate is 4%, what must be the price of an at-the-money European call option on the stock with 1 year maturity.

Answer #1

risk-free rate , rf = 4% = 0.04

present value of dividend , D = expected dividend/(1+rf) = 3/1.04 = 2.884615385

Let the price of call option = c

Exercise price = K = 100 ( since the option is at the money)

stock price = s = 100

let the put option price = p = 8

according to put call parity

c+ D + K/(1+rf) = p + s

c = p + s - D - K/(1+rf) = 8 + 100 - 2.884615385 - 100/1.04 = 105.1153846 - 100/1.04 = 105.1153846- 96.15384615

c = 8.961538446 or $8.96 ( rounding off to 2 decimal places) or $9 ( rounding off to nearest dollar value)

Hence price of call option ,c = 8.961538446 or $8.96 ( rounding off to 2 decimal places) or $9 ( rounding off to nearest dollar value)

The price of a non-dividend paying stock is $19 and the price of
a three-month European put option on the stock with a strike price
of $20 is $1.80. The risk-free rate is 4% per annum. What is the
price of a three-month European call option with a strike price of
$20? Is the call option in the money or out of the money? Explain
Is the put option in the money or out the money? Explain

What is the price of a European put option on a
non-dividend-paying stock when the stock price is $100, the strike

Suppose a share of stock is selling for $100. It plans to pay
cash dividend of $1 per share at the end of this year. Its beta is
1. What price will investors expect the stock to sell for at the
end of the year? (the risk-free rate is 4% and the expected rate of
return on the market is 8%). PLEASE SHOW ALL STEPS

A non-dividend paying stock sells for $110. A call on the stock
has an exercise price of $105 and expires in 6 months. If the
annual interest rate is 11% (0.11) and the annual standard
deviation of the stock’s returns is 25% (0.25), what is the price
of a European put option according to the Black-Scholes-Merton
option pricing model.

Consider an option on a non-dividend-paying stock when the
stock is $ 30, the exercise price is $29. The risk –free rate is 5%
per annum, the volatility is 25% per annum, and the time to
maturity is four months.
(a) What is the price of the option if it is European
call?
(b) What is the price of option if it is an American
call?
(c) What is the price of the option if it is a European
put?

Consider a European call option and a European put option on a
non dividend-paying stock. The price of the stock is $100 and the
strike price of both the call and the put is $104, set to expire in
1 year. Given that the price of the European call option is $9.47
and the risk-free rate is 5%, what is the price of the European put
option via put-call parity?

A non-dividend paying stock sells for $110. A call on the stock
has an exercise price of $105 and expires in 6 months. If the
annual interest rate is 11% (0.11) and the annual standard
deviation of the stock’s returns is 25% (0.25), what is the price
of a European call option according to the Black-Scholes-Merton
option pricing model.

Consider an option on a non-dividend-paying stock when the stock
price is $52, the exercise price is $50, the risk-free interest
rate is 10% per annum, the volatility is 30% per annum, and time to
maturity is 3 months
What is the price of the option if it is a European
call?

A stock that does not pay dividend is trading at $20. A European
call option with strike price of $15 and maturing in one year is
trading at $6. An American call option with strike price of $15 and
maturing in one year is trading at $8. You can borrow or lend money
at any time at risk-free rate of 5% per annum with continuous
compounding. Devise an arbitrage strategy.

Suppose a stock has an expected return of 10% per year and a
return volatility of 28% per year and equally likely transitions
(i.e. with probability 1/2). The risk-free rate is 4% per year. The
stock has a current price of $100 and has declared dividends of
$2.04 to be paid at the end of each six-month period.
