4 Black-Scholes The Black-Scholes option pricing formula is a formidable achievement ! – Brown (1827), Wiener (1918) – Einstein (1905) – Bachelier (1900) – Modigliani and Miller (1958) – Samuelson (1965), Merton (1969) – Black and Scholes (1973) => Scholes and Merton get 1997 Nobel Prize in Economics

9 Black-Scholes Assumptions Prices, S T , are lognormally distributed. This means that continuously compounded returns, r T = ln( S T /S ), are normally distributed. => ( 29 t t N S S σ μ , , 2 ln ln 2 0 - + T T S N S T

10 Black-Scholes Assumptions Even though returns are symmetric, prices are skewed to the right because of compounding – Suppose S=100 can either increase by ln(1.1) = 9.5% or fall by ln(1/1.1)=- 9.5% with equal probabilities

14 Black-Scholes Formula • As S 0 becomes very large: . c tends to S – Ke -rT (and p tends to zero) • As S 0 becomes very small: . c tends to zero (and p tends to Ke -rT –S )

15 Black-Scholes Formula Interpreting the B-S formula: 1. Risk Neutral valuation : - find risk neutral probabilities from underlying - apply probabilities to find option price c = e -rT E*[max(0; S T -K)] = PV { E*[benefit receiving S T ] - E*[cost of paying K] } = SN(d1) – Ke -rT N(d2) N(d2 ) = probability that option matures in-the-money => Ke -rT N(d2) = E*PV(K)
