Example 6.9. A Google call options. On the morning of December 5,
2011 Google stock was selling for $620 a share and a March 12 call option with
strike K = 635 was selling for $33.10. To compare this with the prediction
of the Black-Scholes formula we assume an interest rate of r = 0.01 per year
and assume a volatility = 0.3. The 100 days until expiration of the option
are t = 0.27393 years. With the help of a little spreadsheet we ﬁnd that the
formula predcits a price of $32.93. 203 6.8. EXERCISES Example 6.10. Put-call parity allows us to compute the value of the putoption, VP from the...
