1. A stock price is currently $35. During each 2-month period for the next four months it will either increase by 8% or decrease by 10%. The risk-free interest rate is 5%. Use a two-step tree to calculate the value of a a derivative that pays off [ max (35– S T , 0)] 2 , where S T is the stock price in 4 months. If the derivative is American-style, should it be exercised early? 2. A stock price is currently $50. Over each of the next three 2-month periods it will either go up by 10% or down by 10%. The risk-free interest rate is 12%. Using binomial trees: (a) What is the value of a 6-month European put option with a strike price of $52? (b) What is the value of a 6-month American put option with a strike price of $52? 3. Consider a European call option on a non-dividend-paying stock where the stock price is $45, the strike price is $45, the risk-free rate is 5% per annum, the volatility is 25% per annum, and the time to maturity is 6 months.
