you want to maximize what you receive for this price, and so you would exercise
on the withdividend date in order to capture the dividend. b. When you exercise a put, your gain is the difference between the price of the stock
and the amount you receive upon exercise, i.e., the exercise price. Therefore, in
order to maximize your profit, you want to minimize the price of the stock and so
you would exercise on the exdividend date. 14. [Note: the answer to this question is based on the assumption that the stock price is
known.] We can value the call by using the putcall parity relationship: Value of put = value of call – share price + present value of exercise price Then we must purchase two items of information [value of European put and PV(Exercise
price)] and, hence, will spend $20. If we use the BlackScholes model, we must also purchase two items [standard deviation
times square root of time to maturity and PV(exercise price)] and, hence, will spend $20. 15. Internet exerci...
