1 OPTIONS MARKETS AND VALUATIONS (CHAPTERS 16 & 17) WHAT ARE OPTIONS? Derivative securities whose values are derived from the values of the underlying securities. Stock options quotations from WSJ. A call option buyer has the right to buy, but not the obligation to buy, a certain quantity of the underlying asset at a predetermined (strike or exercise) price on or before the expiration date. The seller (writer) of a call option agrees to sell a certain quantity of the underlying asset at the strike price to the call option buyer on or before the expiration date if the buyer chooses to exercise the option. A put option buyer has the right to sell, but not the obligation to sell, a certain quantity of the underlying asset at the strike price on or before the expiration date. The seller (writer) of a put option agrees to buy a certain quantity of the underlying asset at the strike price from the put option buyer on or before the expiration date if the buyer chooses to exercise the option. The buyer pays an option premium (call or put price) to the seller. 161
2 BASIC FEATURES OF AN OPTION CONTRACT 1. Identity of the underlying security Individual common stock; stock and bond market indexes; foreign currencies; futures contracts; Treasury bills and bonds 2. Strike or exercise price 3. Expiration or maturity date Shortterm: stock options usually expire in less than 9 months LEAPS (LongTerm Equity Anticipation Shares) are options on certain stocks and stock indexes that have expirations of up to three years The actual expiration day of a stock and index option is the third Friday of the month 4. Contract size One stock option contract represents rights to 100 shares of the underlying stock Options on indexes are specified as a multiple, usually 100; e.g., OEX (S&P 100) 5. Exercise style European options can be exercised only on the exercise date; most index options American options can be exercised at any time on or before the exercise date; most individual stock options 6. Delivery or settlement procedure 162
3 OPTION TRADING Option exchanges: CBOE; New York; American; Philadelphia; Pacific Option Clearing Corporation Stock Orders vs. Options Orders Stock orders < Buy! sell < Sell short! buy to cover Options order < Buy Open (call or put) Then three possible actions: 1. Sell Close (offset order) 2. Exercise the option 3. Let the option expire < Sell Open (Call or Put) Then three possible outcomes: 1. Buy Close (offset order) 2. The buyer exercises the option 3. Nothing (the buyer chooses to let the option expire) 163

14 The PutCall Parity (equation 17.2) Portfolio A: Buy a call option and sell a put option on the same stock with the same exercise price and expiration date < The cost of investing in Portfolio A = C  P < The payoff Payoff at Expiration Position < X > X Buy call 0  X Sell put (X  ) 0 Total  X  X Portfolio B: Buy the stock (paying S 0 ) and borrowing a loan with a value = the present value of the exercise price or X/(1 + r F ) T < The cost of investing in Portfolio B = S 0  X/(1 + r F ) T < The payoff Payoff at Expiration Position < X > X Buy stock Borrow loan X X Total  X  X Both portfolios have the same payoffs º both must have the same costs C  P = S 0  X/(1 + r F ) T Arbitrage opportunity exists if the parity is violated 1614
15 Arbitrage Example Example 17.2 Stock S 0 = $110 Call option (X = $105, 6month expiration) C = $17 Put option (X = $105, 6month expiration) P = $5 Risk free interest rate r F = 10.25% Portfolio A: C  P = $12 Portfolio B: S 0  X/(1 + r F ) T = /(1.1025) 0.5 = = $10 Portfolio A is overvalued and/or Portfolio B is undervalued Arbitrage strategy: Sell Portfolio A and buy Portfolio B Payoff table Payoff at expiration Position Immediate Cash Flow = $0 = $200 Sell call (X = $105) $17 $0 $95 Buy put (X = $105) $5 $105 $0 Buy stock $110 $0 $200 Borrow loan $100 $105 $105 Total $2 $0 $0 HOMEWORK: CHAPTER 16: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5(no diagram), 20(A&B) and CK 1 CHAPTER 17: 2(AD) 1615
