The price of a one-year European put option on the stock with a strike price of $30 is quoted as $7 and the price of a one-year European call option on the stock with a strike price of $50 is quoted as $5. Suppose that an investor buys 100 shares, shorts 100 call options, and buys 100 put options. Draw a diagram illustrating how the investor’s profit or loss varies with the stock price over the next year. How does your answer change if the investor buys 100 shares, shorts 200 call options, and buys 200 put options?

Suppose that you are the manager and sole owner of a highly
leveraged company. All the debt will mature in one year. If at that
time the value of the company is greater than the face value of the
debt, you will pay off the debt. If the value of the company is
less than the face value of the debt, you will declare bankruptcy
and the debt holders will own the company.

Express your position as an option on the value of the company.

Express the position of the debt holders in terms of options on the value of the company.

What can you do to increase the value of your position?

Answer #1

ANSWER.

**The investor’s profit varies
with the stock price in the first case.**

**Loss $ 1,200 will get if stock
price is less than $30.**

**As the stock price increases
from $30 to $50 the profit increases from –$1,200 to
$800.**

**Above $50, the profit is
$800.**

**call which is $10 out of the
money is less expensive than a put which is $10 out of the
money.**

**The profit varies with stock
price in the second case.**

**In this case the profit pattern
has a zigzag shape.**

**many different patterns can be
obtained by including calls, puts, and the underlying asset in a
portfolio.**
