Answer #1

To hedge short put you need to short stocks. When share price goes down, you will lose on short put but will gain on short stock, so your position is hedged.

Number of stocks to be shorted = Number of put * Delta of Put

= 100 * 0.489

= 48.9

So the investor will have to short 48.9 stocks.

Money earned from shorting stocks = Share Price * Number of stocks shorted

= 34.5 * 48.9

= 1,687.05

Premium earned from shorting put = Number of put * premium on each put

= 100 * 1.98

= 198

So total inflow from the strategy = Money earned from shorting stocks + Premium earned from shorting put

= 1,687.05 + 198

= 1,885.05

Net dollar gain is 1,885.05

To protect an existing stock position, some traders like to use
a position known as a collar. When traders have a long position in

protective puts. Therefore the upside potential is limited beyond
the strike price of the short call while the downside is protected
by the long put. Suppose you purchased 100 shares of stock ABC at
$13 in May and would like a way to protect your...
