Bull Money spread using the March 55/60 calls

.1. Buy March Call strike price \$55:

Sell March Call strike Price=60

Net cost of the spread=(7.20-2.50) = \$ 4.70

Cost of Each spread of one share= \$4.70

Cost of 100 Shares = \$470

Gain from each Share = \$5 (\$60 - 55)

Gain from 100 Shares = \$5 * 100 = \$500

Net profit = \$500 - 470 = \$30

4.Profit if stock price at expiration is \$59

Gain from long call at \$45=(59-55)=4

Gain/loss on short call at \$60=0

Gain for 100 shares=100*4=\$400

Net Loss= Cost of spread- gain from Call = (470 - 400)=\$70

5. Break even point;

Breakeven price at expiration price=long call Strike Price + Cost of Spread One Share = 55 + 4.70 = 59.70
