Question

The current price of a stock is $ 58.72 and the annual effective risk-free rate is 7.8 percent. A call option with an exercise price of $55 and one year until expiration has a current value of $ 8.91 . What is the value of a put option written on the stock with the same exercise price and expiration date as the call option? Show your answer to the nearest .01. Do not use $ or , in your answer. Because of the limitations of WEBCT random numbers, some of the options may be trading below their intrinsic value. Hint, to find the present value of the bond, you do not need to make the e x adjustment, simple discount at the risk free rate.

Your Answer:

Answer #1

From the put call parity equation

c+ K/(1+r)^t = p+S

where c and p are call and put option premiums respectively, c= $8.91

K is the strike price of the options =$55

, r is the periodic interest rate = 7.8% p.a.

and t is the time period in years = 1

S is the spot price = $58.72

So, we
have p = c+ K/(1+r)^t - S = 8.91+ 55/1.078 - 58.72 =
**$1.210408**

**So, the value of the put option is $1.21 (assuming the
stock did not pay any dividend during the one year)**

The current price of a stock is $50 and the annual risk-free
rate is 6 percent. A call option with an exercise price of $55 and
one year until expiration has a current value of $7.20. What is the
value of a put option (to the nearest dollar) written on the stock

option? (Use put-call parity)

Suppose a stock is currently trading at 92 and the annual risk
free rate is 0.0018.

expiration date T = 0.5 (times in years) and with an exercise price
K = 98. Assume the volatility of annual log return is sd = 0.2

You are attempting to value a call option with an exercise price
of $55 and one year to expiration. The underlying stock pays no
dividends, its current price is $55, and you believe it has a 50%
chance of increasing to $85 and a 50% chance of decreasing to $25.
The risk-free rate of interest is 6%. Based upon your assumptions,
calculate your estimate of the the call option's value using the
two-state stock price model. (Do not round intermediate...

You are considering purchasing a put option on a stock with a
current price of $54. The exercise price is $56, and the price of
the corresponding call option is $4.05. According to the put-call
parity theorem, if the risk-free rate of interest is 5% and there
are 90 days until expiration, the value of the put should be

You are considering purchasing a call option on a stock with a
current price of $31.59. The exercise price is $33.1, and the price
of the corresponding put option is $3.81. According to the put-call
parity theorem, if the risk-free rate of interest is 1.6% and there
are 45 days until expiration, what is the value of the call? (Hint:
Use 365 days in a year.)

Consider a two-period, two-state world. Let the current stock
price be 45 and the risk-free rate be 5 percent. Each period the
stock price can go either up by 10 percent or down by 10 percent. A
call option expiring at the end of the second period has an
exercise price of 40.

A stock sells for $60 and the risk free rate of interest is 5
percent.
A call and
a put on this stock expire in one year and both options have an
exercise price of $55.

A stock is currently trading at 50. The risk free interest rate
is 4%. In one year, analysts believe that share price will either
be 58 or 36.
