CHAPTER 5 OPTION PRICING THEORY AND MODELS Problem 1 A. The values of the option parameters are as follows: S = $83 K = $85 t = 0.25 r = 3.80% Variance = 0.09 Value of call = $4.42 B. To replicate this call, you would have to: Buy 0.4919 Shares of Stock (this is N(d1) from the model) and Borrow K e -rt N(d2) = 85 exp -(0.038)(0.25) (0.4324) = $36.40 C. At an implied variance of 0.075, the call has a value of approximately $4.00 (the market price). Implied Standard Deviation = 0.075 = 0.2739 D. Stock Price $85 $90 E. Value of Three-month Put = C - S + Ke -rt = $4.42 - $83 + 85 exp -(0.038)(0.25) = $5.62 Problem 2 A. S = $28.75 K = $30 t = 0.25 r = 3.60% σ 2 = 0.04 PV of Expected Dividends = $0.28/(1.036) 2/12 = $0.28
