Option basics I. Derivatives Derivatives A derivative is a financial instrument derivative whose price depends on the price of another underlying asset another Major derivative contracts are: Futures and forward contracts Call and put options Swaps 4 Definitions Definitions A call option is the right to buy an asset for a certain call buy price (strike price) at a certain time in the future (expiration date) (expiration A put option is the right to sell an asset for a certain price put sell (strike price) at a certain time in the future (expiration date) date) Exercise style: Exercise European: can be exercised at maturity only American: can be exercised at any time before maturity American: Bermudan: can be exercised only at some predefined times Bermudan: (e.g employee stock options) (e.g 5 Option markets Option Exchange traded options: Stock options (CBOE, Philli, AMEX, NYSE) ForEx options (Philli) Index options (CBOE) Futures options Trading: Market makers, offsetting orders, Trading: margins (for writers and not buyers) margins Options clearing corporation (OCC) Options Option Contracts Option Long position: The option buyer or Long buyer holder pays a premium and receives the right to buy or sell an asset right Short position: The option seller or Short writer receives a premium and has the writer obligation to deliver or purchase an obligation asset whenever the option buyer chooses chooses 7 Option Contracts Option In the money option: if the immediate In exercise is profitable for the holder exercise Out of the money: immediate exercise Out generates losses for the holder generates At the money: Strike is equal to current At underlying price. underlying 8 II.

Plot the profit of the position as a function of stock price at expiration. Repeat the exercise for all the other calls. exercise Profit from holding a call option until expiration until Example Example Assume that you decided to purchase Assume each of the January put options quoted in the Amazon table on November 29, 2005, and you financed each position by shorting a two-month bond with a yield of 3%. Plot the profit of each position as a function of stock price at expiration. expiration. Solution Solution Options and leverage Options Compute the return on holding the Compute Amazon call vs holding the Amazon stock.

Options strategies III. Options strategies Options Straddle: • Buy one call and put with the same exercise price Strangle: Buy 1 call (strike $40) and 1 put (strike $30) Buy Butterfly spread : Butterfly • sell 2 calls (strike $30) and buy 1 call ($20) and 1 call ($40). sell Make money when the stock price is close to the strike M ake Protective put (also called portfolio Protective insurance): • Buy stock + Put on a stock Portfolio insurance Portfolio IV. Put call parity IV. Put call parity Put Without dividends With dividends Problem Problem European call and put options on Exxon are selling for European $3.10 and $0.40 respectively. The exercise price of both options is $45 and have one month to maturity. The current stock price is $46.60 and the one-month riskless rate is 5% p.a (continuous compounding). Is there an arbitrage opportunity in this market? If so, demonstrate how to exploit it and construct an arbitrage table. how V. Option Valuation V.

Using the above quotations, compare the price on Dec 6, 2005, for the Jan 2006 American call option on Oracle with a strike price of $12.50 to the price predicted by the Black-Scholes formula (T=45 days). Assume that the volatility of Oracle is 25% per year and that the short term risk-free rate of interest on Dec 2005, is 4.38% per year (use continuous compounding).

In each of the next two years the stock will either increase by 20% or decrease by 10%. The 3% one year risk free rate on interest will remain constant. Imagine all investors are risk neutral and calculate the probability of every state in the next two years. Use these probabilities to calculate the price of a two year European call option on Narver stock with a strike price $60.
