With 0.8 shares, the stocks payoff will be either 0.8($18) = $14.40 or 0.8($13) = $10.40. The portfolios payoff will be $14.4  $4 = $10.40, or $10.40 0 = $10.40. The present value of $10.40 at the daily compounded riskfree rate is: PV = $10.40 / (1+ (0.06/365)) 365/2 = $10.093. Mini Case: 8  1 The option price is the current value of the stock in the portfolio minus the PV of the payoff: V = 0.8($15)  $10.093 = $1.907 .$1.91.
