What is the premium on the call with a strike of \$450?

What is the breakeven price per share for this strategy?

How much would the investor total profit or loss if Nordstrom's stock price is \$380 at expiration?

What strategy is the investor employing?

Higher Strike call have less premium

therefore 400 Strike call will have premium of 30

and 450 strike call will have premium of 10

Breakeven

Premium collected from 400 call = 30

premium paid on 450 call = 10

Breakeven = 400 + Ner premium earned

Breakeven = 400 + 20 = 420

If the price is 380 on expiration

payoff from 400 call = 0

payoff from 450 call = 0

Therefore Profit = 20

Thsi strategy is called BEAR CALL SPREAD in which we sell/write lower strike call option and buy higher strike call option
