Unformatted text preview: th the same set of payoffs is: Buy a put with an exercise price of $150 Buy a share of stock Borrow the present value of $150 Sell a call with an exercise price of $50 11. Statement (b) is correct. The appropriate diagrams are in Figure 20.5 in the text. The
second row of diagrams in Figure 20.5 shows the payoffs for the strategy: Buy a share of stock and buy a put. The third row of Figure 20.5 shows the payoffs for the strategy: Buy a call and lend an amount equal to the exercise price.

a. Rearranging the putcall parity relationship to show a short sale of a share of stock,
we have: ( Share price) = Value of put Value of call PV(EX) This implies that, in order to replicate a short sale of a share of stock, you would
