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. Alice buys the $50 put, buys the $70 put and sells two of the $60 puts. What is the maximum loss that Alice can face?

Answer #1

A. $2

$2 is the maximum loss that Alice can face. Buy buying $50 and $70 puts and by selling two $60 puts, the initial payoff for Alice is -3+10-9= -2.

Now, if the stock expires below $50, then the profit from buying $50 and $70 puts gets knocked off with selling two $60 puts. If the stock expires greater than 50, then Alice will realise profit and the greater the price it expires after 50, the greater the profit will be.

So, Alice will lose a maximum of $2 when the stock expires below $50.

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.

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]
