CHAPTER 3: HOW SECURITIES ARE TRADED 1. a. In addition to the explicit fees of $70,000, FBN appears to have paid an implicit price in underpricing of the IPO. The underpricing is $3/share or $300,000 total, implying total costs of $370,000. b. No. The underwriters do not capture the part of the costs corresponding to the underpricing. The underpricing may be a rational marketing strategy. Without it, the underwriters would need to spend more resources to place the issue with the public. They would then need to charge higher explicit fees to the issuing firm. The issuing firm may be just as well off paying the implicit issuance cost represented by the underpricing. 2. a. In principle, potential losses are unbounded, growing directly with increases in the price of IBX b. If the stop-buy order can be filled at $78, the maximum possible loss per share is $8. If IBX shares go above $78, the stop-buy order is executed, limiting the losses from the short sale. 3. a.The stock is purchased for 300 × $40 = $12,000. Borrowed funds are $4,000. Therefore, the investor put up equity or margin of $8,000. b. If the share price falls to $30, the value of the stock falls to $9,000. The amount of the loan owed to the broker grows to $4,000 × 1.08 = $4,320. Therefore, remaining margin is 9,000 - 4,320 = $4,680. The percentage margin is now 4,680/9,000 = .52, so there will not be a margin call. c.The rate of return on investment over the years is (Ending value of account - initial equity)/Initial equity = (4,680 - 8,000)/8,000 = - .415 = - 41.5%. 4. a.The initial margin was .50 × 1,000 × $40 = $20,000. The firm loses $10 × 1,000 = $10,000 due to the increase in the stock price so margin falls by $10,000. Moreover, the firm must pay the dividend of $2 per share, which means the margin account falls by an additional $2,000. So remaining margin is $8,000 b. The percentage margin is $8,000/$50,000 = .16, so there will be a margin call. c.The margin in the account fell from $20,000 to $8,000 in one year, for a rate of 3-1

return of - $12,000/$20,000 = - .60 = - 60%. 5. The stop-loss order will be executed as soon as the stock price hits the limit price. If the stock price later rebounds, the investor does not participate in the gains because the stock has been sold. In contrast, the put option need not be exercised when the stock price falls below the exercise price. An investor who owns a share of stock and a put option can hold on to both securities. If the stock price never rebounds, the put can be exercised eventually, and the stock sold for the exercise price.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
