Old Exam Problems - Options Page 2 of 5 Pages 4. Assume that a share of stock has a current price of \$50. Also assume that a call option on this stock has 1 year to maturity, a standard deviation of 0.20, an exercise price of \$50, and that the appropriate 1-year interest rate is 6.00%. What is the price of this call option using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model? (A cumulative normal probability table is at the end of this homework assignment -- you should round off your answers for d 1 and d 2 to two decimal places.) A. \$2.04 B. \$3.12 C. \$4.27 D. \$5.49 E. None of the above. 5. Assume that an investor buys a put for \$3.50 and an equivalent call for \$1.25, where they both have the same exercise price and expiration date. At expiration, the investor will net a profit of \$7.75 when the stock price closes at \$65.00.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
