4 Options/4 PutCall Parity Relationship S T < X S T > X Payoff for Call Owned 0 S T  X Payoff for Put Written ( X ST) 0 Total Payoff S T  X S T  X Options9 Payoff of Long Call & Short Put Payoff Combined = Leveraged Equity Long Call Short Put Stock Price Options10
5 Options/5 Arbitrage & Put Call Parity Since the payoff on a combination of a long call and a short put are equivalent to leveraged equity, the prices must be equal. C  P = S 0  X / (1 + r f ) T If the prices are not equal arbitrage will be possible Cost of buying stock by borrowing $X Cost of buying a call and selling a put Options11 Put Call Parity  Disequilibrium Example Stock Price = 110 Call Price = 17 Put Price = 5 Risk Free rate = 10.25% Maturity =.5 yr Strike price X = 105 C  P > S 0  X / (1 + r f ) T 175 > (105/1.05) 12 > 10 Since the leveraged equity is less expensive, acquire the low cost alternative and sell the high cost alternative Options12

9 Options/9 Options Payoff Call Option 0 Stock Price Options20 Option Values Intrinsic value  profit that could be made if the option was immediately exercised Call: stock price  exercise price Put: exercise price  stock price Time value  the difference between the option price and the intrinsic value Options21
10 Options/10 Option Pricing Model CALL OPTION PRICE EURODOLLAR OPTION PRICES Measured in percent per annum FUTURES PRICE Options22 Factors Influencing Option Values: Calls Factor Stock price Exercise price Volatility of stock price Time to expiration Interest rate Dividend Rate Effect on value increases decreases increases increases increases decreases Options23
11 Options/11 Option Pricing Time Option Price value depends on Time Volatility Distance from the strike price Option Price = Intrinsic value + Time value Underlying Price Options24 Option Pricing Model ENTER THESE DATA: ================= > FUTURES PRICE > STRIKE PRICE > TIME IN DAYS 300 > INTEREST RATE 7 > STD DEVIATION CALL PRICE IS PUT PRICE IS CALL OPTION PRICE FUTURES PRICE Options25
12 Options/12 Value of Call Option FUTURES PRICE STRIKE SHADED AREA: Probability distribution of the log of the futures price on the expiration date for values above the strike. INTRINSIC VALUE TIME VALUE EXPECTED VALUE OF PROFIT GIVEN EXERCISE Options26 BlackScholes Option Valuation Call value = S o N(d 1 )  Xe rt N(d 2 ) d 1 = [ln(s o /X) + (r + σ 2 /2)T] / (σ T 1/2 ) d 2 = d 1  (σ T 1/2 ) where S o = Current stock price X = Strike price, T = time, r = interest rate N(d) = probability that a random draw from a normal distribution will be less than d. Options27
13 Options/13 BlackScholes Option Valuation X = Exercise price. e = , the base of the natural log. r = Riskfree interest rate (annualizes continuously compounded with the same maturity as the option. T = time to maturity of the option in years. ln = Natural log function σ = Standard deviation of annualized cont. compounded rate of return on the stock Options28 How a Change in the Futures Price Changes the Option s Price Profit (gain or loss) Time Value + FK 0 K F Market price of instrument _ Time Value K F E(FJ*FJ>K) Options29
14 Options/14 Call Option Example S o = 100 X = 95 r =.10 σ =.50 T =.25 (quarter) d 1 = [ln(100/95) + (.10+(.5 2 /2))] / ( /2 ) =.43 d 2 =.43  ((.5)(.25 1/2 ) =.18 Options30 Probabilities from Normal Dist. N (.43) =.6664 d N(d) Interpolation Options31
15 Options/15 Probabilities from Normal Dist. N (.18) =.5714 d N(d) Options32 Call Option Value C o = S o N(d 1 )  Xe rt N(d 2 ) C o = 100 X e .10 X.25 X.5714 C o = Implied Volatility Using BlackScholes and the actual price of the option, solve for volatility. Is the implied volatility consistent with the stock? Options33
16 Options/16 Put Option Valuation: Using PutCall Parity P = C + PV (X)  S o = C + Xe rt  S o Using the example data C = X = 95 S = 100 r =.10 T =.25 P = e .10 X P = 8.35 Options34 Using the BlackScholes Formula Hedging: Hedge ratio or delta The number of stocks required to hedge against the price risk of holding one option Call = N (d 1 ) Put = N (d 1 )  1 Option Elasticity Percentage change in the option s value given a 1% change in the value of the underlying stock Options35
17 Options/17 Portfolio Insurance  Protecting Against Declines in Stock Value Buying Puts  results in downside protection with unlimited upside potential Limitations Tracking errors if indexes are used for the puts Maturity of puts may be too short Hedge ratios or deltas change as stock values change Options36 Trading Options: Risk Management Concepts Hedger s view: An option is an insurance premiumyou can gain, but you cannot lose more than the premium you pay. Trader s view: An option is just another securityi can buy it or sell it, take a long or short position in puts or calls. Its price fluctuates with market variables. For any position, the gain or loss is the change in price of the position. Options37
18 Options/18 Trading Options: Delta Hedging Delta We ve written an option Options38 Delta Hedging Option Value HEDGE RATIO =80% HEDGE RATIO =50% HEDGE RATIO =15% Forward or Futures Price Options39
19 Options/19 Trading Options: Delta Hedging with Futures Delta or hedge ratio is the change in the option price for a given change in the price of the underlying. Delta is also the probability of exercise. Delta is also the hedge ratio that tells one how many futures you need to hedge a given options position. Options40 Trading Options: Delta Hedging Hedged with 40% short futures Delta We ve written a put option Options41
20 Options/20 Options Trading: Delta Hedging and the Gamma Delta is not constant: it s low for out of the money options, high for in the money options. Change in delta makes it tough to know exactly how many futures to use. Change in delta is the gamma. Positive gamma is nice. Writing options produces negative gamma, which is nasty. Options42 Goal: Understand Options Sensitivity An option trader has a portfolio of options with different deltas, gammas, etc. The goal is to discover the sensitivities of the portfolio to changes in rates, time, volatility, etc, and to neutralize them. Greek Measures Delta Sensitivity of portfolio value to change in price of the underlying asset Γ Gamma Sensitivity of delta to change in price of underlying asset θ Theta Sensitivity of portfolio value to change in time Λ Lambda (Vega) Sensitivity of portfolio value to change in volatility Ρ Rho Sensitivity of portfolio to change in interest rate Options43

22 Options/22 Binomial Tree Consider a call option on a Treasury Bill The strike price is set at $21. The underlying bill could go to $22 or $18 in 1 month. UP Bill=$22 Bill=$20 Call=$1 Call=? Bill=$18 DOWN Call=$0 A riskfree portfolio must earn the riskfree rate of return. Options46 Binomial Tree Consider a call option on a Treasury Bill The strike price is set at $21. The underlying bill could go to $22 or $18 in 1 month. UP Bill=$20 Call=? DOWN Bill=$22 Call=$1 Bill=$18 Call=$0 PORTFOLIO: Long bills Short 1 Call Portfolio value = 22 1 Portfolio value = 18 What s the delta that will make the portfolio risk free? A riskfree portfolio must earn the riskfree rate of return. Options47
23 Options/23 Binomial Tree Consider a call option on a Treasury Bill The strike price is set at $21. The underlying bill could go to $22 or $18 in 1 month. UP Bill=$20 Call=? DOWN Bill=$22 Call=$1 Bill=$18 Call=$0 PORTFOLIO: Long bills Short 1 Call Portfolio value = 22 1 Portfolio value = 18 If =0.25, Portfolio = $4.5 $4.5 A riskfree portfolio must earn the riskfree rate of return. Discounting the certain outcome of $4.5 by the riskfree rate (10%) and subtracting cost of bills leads to the call price: PV(4.5)5, ie $0.91.

27 Options/27 The Option to Expand PV of Cash Flows from Expansion Additional Investment to Expand Firm will not expand in this section Expansion becomes attractive in this section Present Value of Expected Cash Flows on Expansion Options74 An Example of a Corporate Option J&J is considering investing $110 million to purchase an internet distribution company to serve the growing online market. A financial analysis of the cash flows from this investment suggests that the present value of the cash flows from this investment to J&J will be only $80 million. Thus, by itself, the corporate venture has a negative NPV of $ 30 million. If the online market turns out to be more lucrative than currently anticipated, J&J could expand its reach a global online market with an additional investment of $ 150 million any time over the next 2 years. While the current expectation is that the cash flows from having a worldwide online distribution channel is only $100 million, there is considerable uncertainty about both the potential for such an channel and the shape of the market itself, leading to significant variance in this estimate. This uncertainty is what makes the corporate venture valuable! Options75
28 Options/28 Valuing the Corporate Venture Option Value of the underlying asset (S) = PV of cash flows from purchase of online selling venture, if done now =$100 Million Strike Price (K) = cost of expansion into global online selling = $150 Million We estimate the variance in the estimate of the project value by using the annualized variance in firm value of publicly traded online marketing firms in the global markets, which is approximately 20%. Variance in Underlying Asset s Value = 0.20 Time to expiration = Period for which venture option applies = 2 years 2year interest rate: 6.5% Options76 BlackScholes Option Valuation Call value = S o N(d 1 )  Xe rt N(d 2 ) d 1 = [ln(s o /X) + (r + σ 2 /2)T] / (σ T 1/2 ) d 2 = d 1  (σ T 1/2 ) where S o = Current stock price X = Strike price, T = time, r = interest rate N(d) = probability that a random draw from a normal distribution will be less than d.
