Spring Semester 2010 Dr. Isabel Tkatch Assistant Professor of Finance Derivative securities are financial contracts that derive their value from other securities. They are also called contingent claims contingent because their payoffs are contingent on the prices of other securities. Derivatives  Overview

A European* call option gives the buyer of the option a right to purchase the right underlying asset, at the contracted price (the exercise or strike price) on (th exerc a contracted future date (expiration)
*An American call option gives the buyer of the option (long call) a American right to buy the underlying asset, at the exercise price, on or before on the expiration date Call Option  an Example
A March (European) call option on Microsoft stock with a strike price of $20, entitles the owner with a right to purchase the stock for $20 on the expiration date*. What is the owner’s payoff on the expiration date? What is his profit if the call price is $7? Under what circumstances does he benefit from the position?
* Note that exchange traded options expire on the third Friday of the expiration month. 1 The Payoff of a Call Option
☺ On
☺ Notation
S = the price of the underlying asset (Stock) (we will refer to S0, St or ST) C = the price of a Call option (premium) (we will refer to C0, Ct or CT) X or K = the eXercise or striKe price T = the expiration date t = a time index the expiration date: ☺ If Microsoft stock had fallen below $20, the call would have been left to expire worthless. If Microsoft was selling above $20, the call owner would have found it optimal to exercise. ☺ Exercise
☺ of the call is optimal if the stock price exceeds the exercise price:
Payoff at expiration is the maximum of two:
Max {Stock price – Exercise price, 0} = Max {ST – X, 0}

The seller of a call option is said to write a call, write and he receives the option price called a premium premium. He is obligated to deliver the is underlying asset on expiration date (European), for the the exercise price. The payoff of a short call position (writing a call) is the negative of long call (buying a call):

If two portfolios have the same payoffs in every possible state and time in the future, their prices must be equal: 20 20 20 20 20 25 30 C+ X =S+P T (1 + rf ) Arbitrage – the Law of One Price
If two assets have the same payoffs in every possible state in the future but their prices are not equal, there is an opportunity to make an arbitrage profit. We say that there exists an arbitrage profit opportunity if we identify that:
There is no initial investment There is no risk of loss There is a positive probability of profit Arbitrage – a Technical Definition
Let CFtj be the cash flow of an investment strategy at time t and state j. If the following conditions are met this strategy generates an arbitrage profit. all the possible cash flows in every possible state and time are positive or zero CFtj ≥ 0 for every t and j. (ii) at least one cash flow is strictly positive there exists a pair ( t , j ) for which CFtj > 0.
(i) 8 Example
Is there an arbitrage profit opportunity if the following are the market prices of the assets: The price of one share of stock is $39; The price of a call option on that stock, The which expires in one year and has an exercise price of $40, is $7.25; The price of a put option on that stock, which expires in one year and has an exercise price of $40, is $6.50; The annual risk free rate is 6%. Example
In this case we should check whether the put call parity holds. Since we can see that this parity relation is violated, we will show that there is an arbitrage profit opportunity. C+ X $40 = $7.25 + = $44.986 T (1 + rf ) (1 + 0.06)1 S + P = $39 + $6.50 = $45.5 The Construction of an Arbitrage Transaction
Constructing the arbitrage strategy:
1. Example
In this case we move all terms to the LHS: Move all the terms to one side of the equation so their sum will be positive; For each asset, use the sign as an indicator of the appropriate investment in the asset. If the sign is negative then the cash flow at time t=0 is negative (which means that you buy the stock, bond or option). If the sign is positive reverse the position. ( S + P) −⎜C +
⎝ i.e. S + P −C − ⎛ 2. X⎞ ⎟ = $45.5 − $44.986 = $0.514 > 0 (1+ rf )T ⎠ X >0 (1+ rf )T Example
In this case we should:
