1 The Black-Scholes-Merton formula (Hull ) Assume S t is a geometric Brownian motion w/drift. Want market value at t = 0 of call option. European call option with expiration at time T. Payout at T is max(s T K, 0). Assume stock does not pay dividends. Three alternative methods lead to same result: 1. Take limit of binomial model as n, h Replicating portfolio strategy directly in continuous time. 3. Find risk-neutral expectation of max(s T K, 0). Hull (top of p. 292) starts on 2., see exercise 13.17, p Instead does 3. on pp Hull p. 256 has reference to article using 1.: Cox, Ross, and Rubinstein (1979). Today: Will follow Hull; first 2., then 3. Result is Black-Scholes-Merton formula, c(s 0, K, T, r, σ) S 0 N(d 1 ) Ke rt N(d 2 ), where N is the standard normal distribution function, d 1 ln(s 0/K) + (r + σ 2 /2)T, and d 2 d 1. 1

2 Portfolio strategies; replicating vs. risk free In binomial model, showed a replicating pf. strategy. Holding shares and B in bonds equals option. Hull instead combines share and option to get risk free pf.: Holding shares minus option equals B bonds. In many periods: Need to readjust... readjust replicating portfolio to replicate option, or readjust risk free portfolio to stay risk free. In continuous time: Need to readjust continuously. Relies on literal interpretation of no transaction costs. Will show how to determine risk free pf. strategy. This pf. strategy must earn risk free interest rate. If not: Exists riskless arbitrage opportunity. 2

3 Risk free portfolio strategy; share and option (Hull, pp ) S t is a geometric Brownian motion with drift, an Itô process, ds = µs dt + σs dz. Before T : Call option value is function of S t (or S for short). Also function of t (or T t, time until expiration). What follows is not limited to a call option, c(s, t). Valid for any derivative of S, use notation f(s, t). Use Itô s lemma for f(s, t), df = For short intervals t: and f = f f µs + S t f S 2 2 S 2σ2 dt + f σs dz. S S = µs t + σs z. f f µs + S t f S 2 2 S 2σ2 t + f σs z. S Compose portfolio with f/ S shares and -1 derivative. Value of portfolio is Π = f + f S S. Change in value over short t is Π = f + f S S = f This is risk free since there is no z. t 1 2 f S 2 2 S 2σ2 t. 3

4 Differential equation follows from no arbitrage The no-arbitrage condition requires Π = rπ t. This implies f t + rs f S σ2 S 2 2 f S 2 = rf. This is a partial differential equation (PDE) in f(s, t). It has many solutions. Only natural, since we have not specified a call option. Equation equally valid for put option and other derivatives. To obtain a particular derivative, need boundary condition: Boundary condition for call option is f = max(s K, 0) when t = T. Black-Scholes-Merton solves PDE and boundary condition. Hull leaves this to the reader, exercise 13.17, p Technical note: Compare B-S-M formula p. 291 and p The T on p. 291 is replaced by T t on p For a particular option, T is fixed; T t varies over time. Asking how c varies with time means as T t goes to zero. t increases until it reaches T. t is the time variable relevant for the partial diff. equation. This explains the need for T t in exercise

5 Option pricing using risk-neutral method Based on Ŝt, an adjusted process for S t. Same starting point point, Ŝ0 = S 0. Same volatility, σ. But an expected price increase as if investors were risk neutral. E(ŜT) = S 0 e rt instead of E(S T ) = S 0 e µt. (E(ŜT) is what Hull calls Ê(S T).) (Also D& D, cf. lecture notes 18 August, p. 6.) Market value at time zero is e rt E[max(0, ŜT K)]. May split the payoff in two parts: Paying K in case S T > K. Receiving S T in case S T > K. Need expectations for each part. Instead of S T, use ŜT, with probability density f(ŝt): E(K ŜT > K) = K Kf(ŜT)dŜT = K K which is equal to K Pr(ŜT > K); the other part is E(ŜT ŜT > K) = K The first is simpler, since K is a constant. ŜTf(ŜT)dŜT. f(ŝt)dŝt, 5

6 Valuation of obligation to pay K if S T > K Pr(ŜT > K) = Pr(ln ŜT ln S 0 > ln K ln S 0 ), where ln ŜT ln S 0 φ((r σ 2 /2)T, σ 2 T ), so that Pr(ŜT > K) = Pr ln ŜT ln S 0 ( r σ2 ) 2 T > ln K ln S 0 ( r σ2 ) 2 T where the variable to the left of the inequality sign is standard normal. This is thus equal to 1 N ln K ln S 0 ( r σ2 ) 2 T The symmetry of the normal distribution means that 1 N(x) = N( x), so we may rewrite this as N ln S 0 ln K + ( r σ2 ) 2 T This means that the valuation of an obligation to pay K if S T > K is Ke rt ln S 0 ln K + ( r σ2 ) 2 T N σ T, which appears as part of the Black-Scholes-Merton formula..., 6

7 Valuation of claim to receive S T if S T > K Define h(q) 1 2π e Q2 /2 (a std. normal density), w, m ln S 0 + (r σ 2 /2)T, Q (ln ŜT m)/w. Then Q is a standard normal variable, and can be rewritten as ln ŜT ln S 0 ( r σ2 2 From the definition of Q we have ŜT expectation we need is ) T E(ŜT ŜT > K) = E ( e wq+m e wq+m > K ) = E = ln K m w e wq+m h(q)dq.. = e wq+m. The conditional The integrand can be rewritten (Hull, p. 308) as 1 2π e ( Q2 +2wQ+2m)/2 = e m+w2 /2 h(q w) The integral can thus be rewritten as e m+w2 /2 ln K m w e wq+m Q > ln K m w h(q w)dq = e m+w2 /2 ln K m w +w h(q)dq = e m+w2 /2 ln K m w w h(y )dy, introducing Y = Q w as a new variable of integration. Clearly, as Q goes from (ln K m)/w to, Y goes from (ln K m)/w w to. The integral with Y is the probability that a standard normal variable exceeds (ln K m)/w w. Notice that e m+w2 /2 = S 0 e rt. Also multiply by e rt to get the valuation of the claim, e rt E(ŜT ŜT > K) = S 0 N ln S 0 ln K + ( r + σ2 2 ) T. 7

8 Conclude: The Black-Scholes-Merton formula c(s t, K, T t, r, σ) S t N(d 1 ) Ke r(t t) N(d 2 ), where N is the standard normal distribution function, d 1 ln(s t/k) + (r + σ 2 /2)(T t) σ, and d 2 d 1 t, T t (written with S t and T t as arguments). Together, preceding two pages give the formula. Valid for European call options on no-dividend stocks. For these, early exercise of American calls is not optimal. Thus also valid for American call options on these stocks. Or in periods when a stock for sure does not pay dividends. Can show that the function c(s t, K, T t, r, σ) is increasing in S t, decreasing in K, increasing in T t, increasing in r, and increasing in σ, cf. the discussion on p. 5 of 27 October. Put option values can be found through put-call parity. Formula used a lot in practice; also modified, e.g. for dividends. Hull s Figs show properties of formula (also pp ). 8

9 Dividends in option pricing In section Hull considers known dividends. Both dates and magnitudes are known. Much more complicated if one or both are unknown. European call: Use S t I instead of S t. I is present value of dividends to be paid in (t, T ). Easily understood from risk-neutral valuation method. Call option value is e r(t t) max(0, S T K), but S T must be interpreted as the process of the share value without the dividend, which has a starting value of S t I at time t. In principle the σ to be used should also reflect this process without dividends (see Hull, fn. 12). American call option with dividends: Early exercise? 27 Oct. p. 11: If early exercise, then just before div. Based on this and known dividends (Hull, p. 299): Assume the n dividend dates are t 1 < t 2 <... < t n < T. Corresponding dividends are D 1,..., D n. Consider first whether optimal to exercise at t n. Hull shows: If D n K[1 e r(t t n) ], never exercise. If D n > K[1 e r(t t n) ], exercise if S tn big enough. Something similar for earlier dividend dates. No exact formulae. 9

10 Alternative, p. 300: Compare with European options. One with T as expiration, another with t n. Use the larger of these two European values as approximation. Could maybe extend with more than two dividend dates. 10

11 Volatility, σ σ = var[ln(s t /S t 1 )] is called volatility. Only variable in Black-Scholes-Merton not directly observable. Must be estimated, typically from time-series data. If model is true and constant over time, this is easy. If time-varying, may use, e.g., last six months. (Perhaps also daily, weekly or monthly data make difference.) If models of stock price S t and of option value c t are true: Can compare observed option values with theoretical values. If assume c obs.,t = c theoretical,t c(s t, K, T t, r, σ): (And assume for sure no dividends are paid until time T :) Only one variable, σ, not directly observable in equation. May solve equation for σ, called implicit volatility. Solution cannot be found explicitly, but by numerical methods. Interpretation: Market uses B-S-M; what σ does it believe? Forward-looking number, as opposed to time-series, historical. 11
