Unformatted text preview: Should they? o Price of gold has fallen Price is not advantageous for Timmins Because of fixed cost payment upfront, you lose If increases, you are a big time winner o How do you value the \$25k option? o If price goes to \$310/oz Make profit first year [(310 - 225)*200/.10} -500 000 = \$1.2M Worst case = -.2M (if price of gold falls) Only cost us 25K for the option. o What is the probability of the best case scenario? (291.50-240)/(310-240) = .7357 risk neutral = \$832868 (equal likelihood across the whole range) win probability, depend on something o because I dont know that, Im willing to pay 25k for a chance to wait and find out super small amount for the outcomes of a choice. 22:06 22:06...
