#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

a. X = \$150

P = \$10

The maximum loss of this position occurs when the stock price falls below (X - P) = 150 - 10 = \$140

That is when the stock price falls below, St = 140

The maximum loss = (Purchase price of the stock - St + P) * Number of shares

The maximum loss = (150 - 140 + 10) * 300

The maximum loss = 20 * 300

The maximum loss = \$6,000

b. When St = 161

Net profit = (St - Stock purchase price - P) * Number of shares

Net profit = (161 - 150 - 10) * 300

Net profit = \$300
