#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

1) Total premium paid = (100*4.3)+(100*5.1)

=430+510 = 940\$

If price at expiry is 52.79\$ , then none of the oprtion would be exercised, Thus total loss = premium paid = 940\$

2) According call put parity

C+PV(x) = P + S

C= Call price

PV(x) = PV of strike price

P = put price

S= stock price

Thus

PV(x) = P+S-C

Thus ans

C) Stock price plus the put premium minus the call premium

3) Writer of call has an obligation to sell stock if holder of option exercises it. Now call option will exercise only when stock price is more than exercise price. Thus ans

c) obligation to sell a stock on a specified date at a specified price.

4) Re = 0.14 + [(0.14-0.08)*0.65*(1-0.21)]

=0.14+0.031

=17.1%
