Question

The price of an asset will either rise by 25% or fall by 40% in 1 year, with equal probability. A European put option on this asset matures after 1 year. Assume the following: • Price of the asset today: 100 • Strike price of the put option: 130 • Put option premium: 7 What is the expected profit for this asset?

I need a detailed answer for 10 marks

Answer #1

**Answer:**

**Expected profit = ∑Xi ∗ Pi**

Where:

Xi = profit in scenario i

Pi = probability of scenario i

The profit from put option = Payoff - Premium

Payoff from put option = max((K - S),0)

- where
- K = strike price = $130
- S = underlying price at maturity

if price moves up then S = 100 * 1.25 =$ 125

if price moves down then S = 100 * (1-0.40) =$ 60

Premium = $7

Hence,

Profit in first option = max((130-125),0) = $5

Profit in second option = max((130-60),0) = $70

Therefore, expected profits = (50% * 5) + (50% *70) = $37.5

The price of an asset will either rise by 25% or fall by 40% in
1 year, with equal probability. A European put option on this asset
matures after 1 year. Assume the following:
• Price of the asset today: 100
• Strike price of the put option: 130
• Put option premium: 7
What is the expected profit for this asset?

Suppose AT&T’s current stock price is $100 and it is
expected to either rise to 130 or fall to 80 by next April (assume
6-months from today). Also assume you can borrow at the risk-free
rate of 2% per 6 months. Using the binomial approach, what would
you pay for a call option on AT&T that expires in 6-months and
has a strike price of $105? A strike price of $110?

An investor bought a 40-strike European put option on an index
