Question

Suppose a student borrows the present value of $110, buys a 6-month Put option on stock Y with an exercise price of $150, and sells a 6-month Put option on Y with an exercise price of $40. Draw a position diagram showing the payoffs when the options expire.

Answer #1

6 month option means the option will be exercisedat the end of 6th month.

Put option means right to sell.

Put option holder will get the right to sell the stock. Put option writer will have the obligation to buy the stock when the put option holder exercises his right to sell.

Payoff is the loss or gain to the option owner.

Loss of option holder is limited to premium. Gain is unlimited.

Loss of option writer is unlimited and gain limited to premium.

Position diagram showing payoff is a table showing the payoff.

We need premium to calculate payoff. As not given in the question, i have assumed premium.

1. A trader buys a call option with a strike price of €45 and a
put option with a strike price of €40. Both options have the same
maturity. The call costs €3 and the put costs €4. Draw a diagram
showing the variation of the trader’s profit with the asset price.
Explain the purpose of this strategy

Find the theoretical fair value of a put option written on a
share of stock that is trading at $100 today. The exercise price of
the put option is $112. A call option written on that same stock
with the same exercise price sells for $3.19. The risk-free rate is
7.7% and both options expire in exactly 16 weeks.

The price of a stock is $40. 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.
a) Construct a payoff and profit/loss table
b) Draw a diagram illustrating how the...

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.

profit?
b) Under what circumstances will the buyer exercise the
option?
c) Draw a diagram (or a table) illustrating how the profit from
a short position in the option depends on the stock price at the
maturity of the option.

Suppose that a June put option on a stock with a strike price of
$60 costs $4 and is held until June. Under what circumstances will
the holder of the option make a gain? Under what circumstances will
the option be exercised? Draw a diagram showing how the profit on a
short position in the option depends on the stock price at the
maturity of the option.
