2 Binomial Moel  Introuctory Example: Current stock price: = $50 Call strike K = $50 r = 25% per annum with annual compouning In the next time perio (one year) the stock can go either up to u = $100 or own to = $25: = $50 u = $100 = $25 Question: Fin the value of the call with K = 50. The Power of NoArbitrage Arguments: If profitable arbitrage is not possible we can fin the fair (arbitragefree) value of the call C from the given ata alone without any information about the probabilities of the stock going up or own! trategy: 1. Write 3 calls for C 2. Buy 2 shares for = $50 3. Borrow $40 at 25% to be pai back at the en of the perio (one year) 3 C u = 100, = 0 = 25, = 0 The future value of the portfolio is 0 in both cases inepenent of the outcome for the stock =100 or 25, i.e., the portfolio is riskless an, assuming no arbitrate, its present value must also be zero: 3 C = 0! C = $20. If the call is not price at $20, arbitrage profits are possible. 2
3 To price the call we neee the following ata: K,, r, T (time to maturity), range of the stock movement: u, u We i not nee: The probabilities q an (1  q) that the stock will go up or own. We have price the option relative to the unerlying stock an the riskfree rate. One Perio Binomial Option Pricing: Replicating Portfolio We assume the unerlying asset pays no iviens (we will relax this assumption shortly). We also assume that 0 < < e < u (this is an important assumption) q 1  q u, C u = max(u  K,0), C = max(  K,0) 0 t T Form the following portfolio (goal replicate the option with positions in stock an borrowing): Borrow B ollars at riskfree rate (equivalently, short sell a zerocoupon riskfree bon with current price B an face value e B pai at the en of the perio) Buy shares of stock Portfolio value at inception:  B.  B q 1  q u  e B  e B Let us select an B so that the enofperio values of our portfolio are equal to the call values for each possible outcome: 3
4 u  e B = C u  e B = C olve these two equations for an B: Cu C = ( u ) (Delta of the option) B C uc u u = e (Amount to borrow) Replicating portfolio (one perio): Thus we have replicate a call option with a long position in the unerlying stock an borrowing (equivalently, short position in the bon). If the values of two portfolios are equal at the en of the perio in all possible states! they must be equal at the beginning of the perio (the noarbitrage argument): C = B. OnePerio Binomial Pricing Formula ubstitute the expressions for an B into the pricing formula: C = B Cu C Cu uc = e ( u ) u e u e = e Cu + C u u = e pc + (1 p) C, where [ ] u r t e p = u u e an 1 p = u. Just like pricing forwars, we constructe a synthetic option (a replicating portfolio) using the noarbitrage argument. The crucial feature of our result is that the probabilities q an 1 q o not appear anywhere in the formula! 4
5 In this moel, even if ifferent investors have ifferent beliefs about probabilities for the stock to go up or own, they still must agree on the relationship between the option price C, the stock price an the riskfree rate of return r. At the same time, the call price relative to an r ose not epen on investors attitues towar risk. The iscount rate is the riskfree rate r. It shoul be stresse that the pricing formula is a relative pricing relationship that etermines C, given an r. RiskNeutral Probabilities: The quantities p an (1 p) are calle riskneutral probabilities r t e p = u u e an 1 p = u As long as 0 < < e < u, they are between 0 an 1. Calculate expecte stock price at the en of the perio using riskneutral probabilities: e u e pu + (1 p) = u + = e u u Thus, p an (1 p) are inee risk neutral probabilities: expecte rate of return on the stock uner these probabilities is the riskfree rate r: e. In the riskneutral worl, investors are riskneutral an o not require any risk premium for holing risky assets. Expecte rate of return on all assets is equal to the riskfree rate. OnePerio RiskNeutral Valuation Formula C = e  [pc u + (1  p)c ] OnePerio Binomial Option Pricing: Hege Portfolio (alternative an equivalent erivation) et up a portfolio: 1. hort 1 call 2. Long shares Π 0 =  C 5
6 At time T: Π 0 u C u, u = u with probability q C, = with probability 1 q For the portfolio to be riskless: Π = Π, u u C u =  C There is no uncertainty about the future value of our portfolio: it is worth the same in both states (up state an own state). olve for : Cu C =. ( u ) Delta is the ratio of the change in the option price to the change in the unerlying price (hege ratio). Portfolio is riskless! must earn interest at the riskfree rate, i.e., Π 0 = e  Π u, C = e  ( u C u ), C =  e  ( u C u ), Cu C C = (1 ue ) e Cu ( u ) + 1 ue ue 1 = Cu e + + C u u = e [ pc + (1 p) C ] u In this erivation we hege out all the risk of the short call position by buying shares of the unerlying ( is our hege ratio). The resulting hege portfolio is riskfree an as such must earn the riskfree rate of return to prevent arbitrage (noarbitrage argument). This erivation of the option pricing base on the hege portfolio is completely equivalent to the first erivation where we replicate a call with positions in the unerlying an borrowing (replicating portfolio). Example: OnePerio Pricing = $20 K = $21 r =12% 6
7 t = 0.25 year $22, C $18, = 18! = 0.25 Π 0 = e  Π u, Π,u = 22 x = 4.5, Π 0 = e 0.12x = x 0.25 C = 4.367! C = Existence an Uniqueness of RiskNeutral Probabilities, Absence of Arbitrage Opportunities, an Market Completeness The oneperio binomial moel contains one risky asset (a stock ) an one riskfree asset (oneperio money market account or riskfree zerocoupon bon). More general moels are multiperio (or continuous time) an inclue multiple risky assets, along with the riskfree asset (money market account). The very simple binomial moel alreay contains many of the features of more general moels. Riskneutral probabilities (riskneutral probability measure) exist if an only if there are no arbitrage opportunities in the moel (this statement is known as The First Funamental Theorem of Asset Pricing). A contingent claim is sai to be replicable if it can be exactly replicate by an equivalent replicating portfolio of primitive unerlying securities. A moel is sai to be complete if all contingent claims are replicable in this moel. The riskneutral probability measure is unique if an only if the market is complete (this statement is known as The econ Funamental Theorem of Asset Pricing). The binomial moel with 0 < < e < u amits no arbitrage opportunities, is complete (any contingent claim can be replicate by positions in stock an money market account or bon), an there exists a unique riskneutral probability measure (riskneutral probabilities p an 1p). r t Now suppose we starte with a binomial moel where e < < u. Then the stock return ominates the riskfree return in both states. Then there is an arbitrage opportunity: borrow cash an invest in stock. Initial value of this portfolio is zero, while the final value of this portfolio is positive in both states. The arbitrage portfolio is basically a 7
8 eterministic money machine. Clearly, this is not a realistic market moel. This moel amits arbitrage, an if you look at our riskneutral probability formulas, you will see that p < 0 an 1 p > 1! Thus, in this case the riskneutral probability measure oes not exist. r t Now suppose 0 < < u< e. Then, the riskfree return ominates the return on the stock in both states. Then there is an arbitrage opportunity: sell the stock short an invest cash. Initial value of this portfolio is zero, while the final value of this portfolio is positive in both states. This moel amits arbitrage, an has p > 1 an 1 p < 0. Thus, in this case there riskneutral probability measure oes not exist.

10 N N! = : number of paths to a particular outcome (N,) at maturity (binomial!( N )! coefficient), N N pn, = p (1 p) : riskneutral probability of an outcome with up movements an N own movements (riskneutral binomial probability). MultiPerio RiskNeutral Valuation Formula for Europeanstyle Contingent Claims with General Payoffs uppose a contingent claim is efine by its payoff F( T ), where F is a given function of the terminal asset price. Then its present value (price) is given by the iscounte riskneutral expectation of the payoff: rt PV = e p F( ), N, N, where p N, are riskneutral probabilities. Consistency check: From the Binomial Theorem: N N N rt rt N N e pn, N, = e p (1 p) u 0 0 = = rt N rt rn t = e ( pu+ (1 p) ) = e e = Thus, as expecte, the price of the stock is equal to its current price. American Options (No Diviens) 1. American calls: always worth more alive than ea. It is never optimal to exercise prior to expiration. 2. American puts: at each time step we maximize the value of our position  optimal exercise strategy maximizes the option value to the option holer. Assuming the rational option holer maximizes his portfolio value, the ynamic programming (Bellman) equation for American puts reas: P = max( K u, e [ pp + (1 p) P ]) i i, i+ 1, + 1 i+ 1, At each noe we perform the test for making early exercise ecision: is the option worth more ea (exercise) or alive (hol)? 10
11 Example of DeltaHeging on a Binomial Tree: A Riskless Traing trategy to Lock in Profits from Option Mispricing From Cox an Rubinstein, Options Markets, Ch. 5 Threeperio binomial tree (N = 3) for a call option with K = 80 expiring at the en of the thir perio. Initial stock price is = 80 at the noe (0,0), the risk free rate r is such that exp() = 1.1, an the iscount factors for one, two an three perios are: exp( ) = 0.909, exp( 2) = 0.826, exp( 3) = Also, suppose that u = 1.5 an = 0.5. The riskneutral probability of an up move is: p = = Fair value of the call accoring to our binomial moel is C = $ uppose that at time t = 0 the call is actually trae in the market for C = $36, i.e., it is overprice accoring to our moel. Arbitrage strategy: sell the call for $36 an hege by creating a synthetic call. tep 0 (i = 0). ell the call for 36. Take of the procees an invest in a portfolio consisting of = shares of stock by borrowing the ifference x = Take the remainer = an put it in the bank to grow at the risk free rate. tep 1 (i = 1). uppose the stock goes up to 120 so that the new = Buy = more shares at 120 per share for a total of Borrow to pay for the stock. With the interest rate of 0.1, you alreay owe x 1.1 = Thus your total current ebt is = tep 2 (i = 2). uppose the stock now goes own to 60. The new = ell = shares at 60 per share, taking in x 60 = Use it to pay back part of your ebt. ince you now owe 1.1 x = , the repayment will reuce this to = tep 3 (i = 3). uppose the stock goes own to 30. The call you sol expire worthless. You own shares of stock selling at 30 per share, for a total value of x 30 = 5. ell the stock an repay the ebt x 1.1 = 5 that you now owe. Go back to the bank an withraw your original eposit of 1.935, which has now grown to x (1.1) 3 = Congratulations! This is your arbitrage profit. 11
12 tep 3u (i = 3). uppose that instea the stock price goes up to 90. The call you sol is inthemoney at expiration. Buy one share of stock an let the call be exercise, incurring a loss of = 10. You also own shares of stock currently traing at 90/share, for a total value of x 90 = 15. ell the stock an use the procees to repay the ebt an cover the loss of 10 for exercising the call. Go back to the bank an withraw your original eposit of 1.935, which has now grown to x (1.1) 3 = Congratulations! This is your arbitrage profit. In summary, if our moel of stock price movements is correct an we faithfully aust our portfolio as prescribe by the formula for the option elta, then we can be assure of walking away in the clear at expiration ate, while still keeping the original price ifference plus the interest it has accumulate. In conucting the heging operation, the essential thing was to maintain the proper proportional relationship: for each call we are short, we hol shares of stock an we borrow at the risk free rate the ollar amount B, thus creating a synthetic option.
