On May 22, 1998 Intel was selling at 74.625. Use the Black-Scholes formula to compute the value of a Janaury 2000 call (t = 1.646 years) with strike 100, assuming the interest rate was r = 0.05 and the volatility = 0.375. 6.24. On December 20, 2011, stock in Kraft Foods was selling at 36.83. (a) Use the Black-Scholes formula to compute the value of a March 12 call (t = 0.227 years) with strike 33, assuming an interest rate of r = 0.01 and the volatility = 0.15. The volatility here has been chosen to make the price consistent with the bid-ask spread of (3.9,4.0). (b) Is the pri...
