1 BPP Professional Education Solutions to practice questions Study Session 11 Solution 11.1 A mandatory convertible bond has a payoff structure that resembles a written collar, so its price can be determined as a written collar. he payoff to a naked written collar is shown below. Naked written collar 0 K 1 K 2 S We saw that a naked written collar consists of selling a lower strike put and buying a higher price call. he same payoff graph can also be achieved by buying the underlying stock, selling a lower strike call, and buying a higher strike call. You should be able to verify that the above payoff diagram can be achieved by either of the two strategies. Solution 11.2 Name Position Equivalent position Floor or insured asset Long asset + purchased put Long bond + Purchased call Covered written call Long asset + written call Long bond + written put Cap or insured short Short asset + purchased call Short bond + purchased put Covered written put Short asset + written put Short bond + written call Solution 11.3 Expectation Volatility Prices Increase Neutral view Decrease Increase Purchase call Purchase asset Sell or write put Neutral Purchase straddle No action Sell or write straddle Decrease Purchase put Sell asset Sell or write call Version 3 (November

2 Financial Mathematics Solutions to practice questions Study Session 11 Solution 11.4 he graphs are contained in your Study Session 11 notes! Solution 11.5 he correct answer is A. Both the assertion and the reason are true, and the reason is the correct explanation. If the asset price increases, the futures price for the asset also increases, resulting in a profit from the futures position that offsets the increase in price of the asset. Solution 11.6 he correct answer is A. Solution 11.7 he correct answer is A. Both the assertion and reason are true. he reason explains the assertion. Since the only time to exercise an American call early is just before a dividend payment, it follows that a call option on a stock that does not make dividend payments should not be exercised before maturity. Solution 11.8 he correct answer is D. Y relates to I and III Solution 11.9 Buy 1010-strike call for : \$93.69 Sell 1050-strike call for : \$73.00 Sell 1010-strike put for : \$41.88 Buy 1050-strike put for: \$60.02 Cost is therefore: \$38.83 Long strangle Short strangle Example payoffs Price of asset underlying options: Buy call, strike Buy put, strike Sell put, strike Sell call, strike otals: So, the guaranteed payoff from the straddle will be 40. he implied interest rate over 4 months is therefore 3% as: = Solution Put call parity gives us that C 0 = = BPP Professional Education

Let: S 0 and S be the stock price now and at the expiration date of the put option respectively P 0 be the current put option price K be the strike price of the put FV( S 0 and FV( P 0 be the future value of the initial stock price and put premium respectively. he profit from the long stock position is given by: S FV( S0 he profit from the long put position is given by: (i Max(0, K S FV( P0 Maximum loss he floor will make a loss if the stock price falls below the strike price and the put is exercised. he profit from the put will then be: K S FV( P0 So, the overall profit from the floor will be: + S FV( S0 + K S FV( P0 = FV( S0 + K FV( P0 ie the loss will be equal to the future value of the initial stock price, minus the strike price, plus the future value of the put premium. his loss will be the same regardless of how far the stock price falls below the stock price and so represents the maximum loss from the floor. (ii Breakeven price he floor will breakeven when the put is out-of-the-money, so that the profit on the stock exactly offsets the loss on the put. he profit from the long put position will then be: 0 FV ( P0 ie a loss equal to the future value of the put premium. So, the overall profit from the floor will be: + S FV( S0 + 0 FV( P0 =+ S FV( S0 FV( P0 his will be equal to zero when: + S = FV( S0 + FV( P0 ie the breakeven price is the future value of the initial stock price, plus the future value of the put premium.

Let: S 0 and S be the stock price now and at the expiration date of the put option respectively C 0 be the current call option price K be the strike price of the call FV( S 0 and FV( C 0 be the future value of the initial stock price and call premium respectively. he profit from the long stock position is given by: S FV( S0 he profit from the short call position is given by: (i { Max(0, S K FV ( C } Maximum profit he covered call will make a profit if the stock price rises. 0 If the stock price at expiration exceeds the strike price of the call option, then the option will be exercised, giving an overall profit to the covered call holder of: { } + S FV( S0 S K FV( C0 = K + FV( C0 FV( S0 ie the maximum profit is the strike price, plus the future value of the call price, minus the future value of the initial stock price. his will be the same regardless of the extent by which the stock price exceeds the strike price and so represents the maximum profit to the covered call position. (ii Maximum loss he covered call will make a loss if the stock price falls. In fact, the lower the stock price at expiration, the greater loss. he maximum loss will therefore occur if the stock price falls to zero. he profit from the call will then be: { 0 FV ( C } 0 So, the overall profit from the covered call will be: + 0 FV( S0 0 + FV( C0 = + FV( C0 FV( S0 ie the loss will be equal to the future value of the initial stock price minus the future value of the call price. 4 BPP Professional Education

5 Solutions to practice questions Study Session 11 Financial Mathematics Solution A synthetic long forward consists of a combination of a long call and a short put position. he profit from the long call is given by: Max(0, S K FV( C0 = Max(0, S he profit from the short put is given by: Max(0, K S + FV( P0 = Max(0,11.00 S So, if the stock price at expiration is equal to the strike price of \$11, the overall profit from then synthetic forward will be: = = he breakeven price must therefore be less than the strike price of \$11. If this is the case, the overall profit from then synthetic forward will be: = (11.00 S = S ie the breakeven price is \$ Solution A purchased naked collar position involves buying lower strike price puts and buying higher strike price calls. he profit from each put purchased will be: K Max(0, K S FV ( P Whilst the profit from each call sold will be: K2 2 0 Max(0, S K + FV ( C (i S =10 If the stock price at expiration is \$10, the overall profit each purchased collar will be: K1 K K S FV ( P 0 + FV( C = = So, the profit from 1,000 such positions will be \$1,168. (ii Maximum profit A purchased naked collar is a bearish strategy, as the profit increases as the stock price falls. he maximum profit will therefore be obtained if the stock price falls to zero. In this case, the profit from each collar position will be: K1 K K S FV ( P 0 + FV( C = = Giving a maximum total profit of \$11,168. BPP Professional Education 5

7 Solutions to practice questions Study Session 11 Financial Mathematics Solution he correct answer is C. Recall that the profit from a long call is given by: Max S K FV C (0, ( 0 So, the combined profit from the three calls making up the butterfly spread is given by: + Max(0, S Max(0, S Max(0, S he maximum loss occurs when either all three options are exercised, ie when S > 70, or when none of the options is exercised, ie when S < 60. If S > 70, the profit is: + ( S ( S ( S = ( = 0.49 If S < 60, the profit is: + ( ( ( = ( = 0.49 So, the maximum loss is \$0.49 Note that the loss is equal to the accumulated value of the net initial debit. Solution Recall that the profit from the long put position is given by: Max K S FV P (0, ( 0 Also, the profit from a long call is given by: Max S K FV C (0, ( 0 So, the overall profit from the trade is: + Max(0, 60 S Max(0, S If S > 60, the profit is: + ( ( S = 2S So, she will therefore make a profit if: 2S > ie S > \$71.65 If S < 60, the profit is: + (60 S ( = S BPP Professional Education 7

Actually, she may believe that it is a bit more likely to move considerably upwards. his is because she has purchased two calls and will therefore receive \$2 of additional profit for each extra dollar by which the stock price exceeds \$65.51 (whereas she makes only \$1 additional profit for each extra dollar the stock price falls below \$ his combined trade is known as a strap. A combination of two puts and one call with the same strike price on the same underlying asset is known as a strip. 8 BPP Professional Education
