3. a.From put-call parity: P = C – S 0 + [X/(1 + r f ) T ] = 10 – 100 + [100/(1.10) 1/4 ] = \$7.65 b. Purchase a straddle, i.e., both a put and a call on the stock. The total cost of the straddle is: \$10 + \$7.65 = \$17.65 This is the amount by which the stock would have to move in either direction for the profit on the call or put to cover the investment cost (not including time value of money considerations). Accounting for time value, the stock price would have to move in either direction by: \$17.65 × 1.10 1/4 = \$18.08 4. a.From put-call parity: C = P + S 0 – [X/(l + r f ) T ] 4 + 50 – [50/(1.10) 1/4 ] = \$5.18 b. Sell a straddle, i.e., sell a call and a put to realize premium income of: \$5.18 + \$4 = \$9.18 If the stock ends up at \$50, both of the options will be worthless and your profit will be \$9.18. This is your maximum possible profit since, at any other stock price, you will have to pay off on either the call or the put. The stock price can move by \$9.18 in either direction before your profits become negative. c. Buy the call, sell (write) the put, lend: \$50/(1.10) 1/4 The payoff is as follows: Position Immediate CF CF in 3 months S T X S T > X Call (long) C = 5.18 0 S T – 50 Put (short) –P = 4.00 – (50 – S T ) 0 Lending position 82 . 48 10 . 1 50 4 / 1 = 50 50 Total C – P + 00 . 50 10 . 1 50 4 / 1 = S T S T By the put-call parity theorem, the initial outlay equals the stock price: S 0 = \$50 In either scenario, you end up with the same payoff as you would if you bought the stock itself. 5. a. Outcome S T X S T > X Stock S T + D S T + D Put X – S T 0 Total X + D S T + D 20-2
b. Outcome S T X S T > X Call 0 S T – X Zeros X + D X + D Total X + D S T + D The total payoffs for the two strategies are equal regardless of whether S T exceeds X. c.The cost of establishing the stock-plus-put portfolio is: S
