Question

Three put options on a stock have the same expiration date and strike prices of $50, $60, and $70. The market prices are $3, $5, and $9, respectively. Lou buys the $50 put, buys the $70 put and sells two of the $60 puts. Lou's strategy potentially makes money (i.e. positive profit) in which of the following price ranges?

$40 to $50 |
||

$55 to $65 |
||

$85 to $95 |
||

$70 to $80 |

Answer #1

1. Profit when Spot Price is 45

Buy $50 Put = $50 - $45 - $3 = $2

Buy $70 Put = $70 - $45 - $9 = $16

Sell $60 Put = $45 - $60 + $5 = -$10

**Total Profit = $8**

2. Profit when spot price is $60

Buy $50 Put = - $3

Buy $70 Put = $70 - $60 - $9 = $1

Sell $60 Put = $5

**Total Profit = $3**

3. Profit when spot price is $90

Buy $50 Put = - $3

Buy $70 Put = - $9

Sell $60 Put = $5

**Total Profit = -$7**

3. Profit when spot price is $75

Buy $50 Put = - $3

Buy $70 Put = - $9

Sell $60 Put = $5

**Total Profit = -$7**

**Maximum profit will result when the spot price is
between $40 to $50 Thus Option A is correct**

An investor writes a put option with exercise (strike) price of
$80 and buys a put with exercise price of $65. The puts sell for $8
and $3 respectively. If the options are on the same stock with the
same expiration date,
i. Draw the payoff and profit/loss diagrams for the above
strategy at expiration date of options
ii. Calculate the breakeven point for this strategy and discuss
whether the investor is bullish or bearish on the underlying
stock.

Set-up for all parts: An investment strategy involves four stock
options with the same expiration date but different strike prices.
An example is the following: (i) write a call option with strike
price 60, (ii) buy a call option with strike price 55, (iii) buy a
put option with strike price 45, and (iv) write a put option with
strike price 40.
OPTION STRATEGY (PART 1)
Using the table below, express the total
payoffs of this strategy in terms of...

The strike price for a European call and put option is $56 and
the expiration date for the call and the put is in 9 months. Assume
the call sells for $6, while the put sells for $7. The price of the
stock underlying the call and the put is $55 and the risk free rate
is 3% per annum based on continuous compounding. Identify any
arbitrage opportunity and explain what the trader should do to
capitalize on that opportunity....

Both a call and a put currently are traded on stock Xue; both
have strike prices of $50 and maturities of 6 months.
What will be the profit/loss to an investor who buys one
call contract at $3 a share? How about for the person who
buys one put contract for $6.50 a share? [Hint:
profit= value of the option at expiration- initial cost]
Scenario
