1 Options Prepared by Paul A. Spindt

2 A Call Option Gives its owner the right (not obligation) underlying  to buy an asset (the underlying) exercise price  at a specified price (the exercise price) expiration date  on (and perhaps before) a given date (the expiration date)

3 A Put Option Gives its owner the right (not obligation) underlying  to sell an asset (the underlying) exercise price  at a specified price (the exercise price) expiration date  on (and perhaps before) a given date (the expiration date)

4 Options Lingo  option premium  intrinsic value; time value  European; American  long; short  covered; naked

5 Example  Here’s a quote from Wednesday’s Wall Street Journal : -Call- -Put- SunMic 58 3 / 4 60 Jan / / 8 Wednesday’s closing stock price Option strike price Expiration date Volume Premium

6 Option Payoff: Calls 0 Payoff Stock Price (at Expiration) Strike Price

7 Option Payoff: Puts 0 Payoff Stock Price (at Expiration) Strike Price

8 Option Value  Intrinsic value max(0,S-X)  The intrinsic value of a call is max(0,S-X) max(X-S,0)  The intrinsic value of a put is max(X-S,0)  Time value  Time value is the option premium minus intrinsic value

9 The Value of a Call Value X } When S is greater than X, the intrinsic value of the call is $(S-X) (S-X) S This call option has an intrinsic value of $3.75 and time value of $3.50 -Call- -Put- SunMic 58 3 / 4 55 Jan /

10 When S is less than X, the intrinsic value of the call is $0 The Value of a Call Value X This call option has an intrinsic value of $0 and time value of $ Call- -Put- SunMic 58 3 / 4 60 Jan / / 8

11 The Value of a Put Value When S is less than X, the intrinsic value of the put is $(X-S) X This put option has an intrinsic value of $1.25 and time value of $ Call- -Put- SunMic 58 3 / 4 60 Jan / / 8

12 The Value of a Put Value When S is greater than X, the intrinsic value of the put is $0 X This put option has an intrinsic value of $0 and a time value of $2.00 -Call- -Put- SunMic 58 3 / 4 55 Jan /

13 Put-Call Parity  In an efficient market two investments with the same payoff ought to have the same price.

14 Put-Call Parity This principle implies that  the current stock price plus the price of a put

15 Put-Call Parity should equal  the price of a call plus the PV of the exercise price

16 $50 The Payoff on a Stock Payoff Stock Price at Expiration A stock is currently selling at $45. A call and a put each with a strike price of $50 and an expiration date 6 months from now are available. $50 Terminal value of investment in stock

17 The Payoff on a Put Payoff $50 Stock Price at Expiration Terminal value of investment in put Terminal value of investment in stock (minus $50) $0

18 The Payoff on a Stock and a Put Payoff $50 Stock Price at Expiration Terminal value of investment in both stock and put $50

19 The Payoff on a Call Payoff $50 Stock Price at Expiration $0 Terminal value of investment in call

20 The Payoff on a Bond Payoff $50 Stock Price at Expiration $50 Terminal value of investment in bond Terminal value of investment in call (plus $50)

21 The Payoff on a Call and a Bond Payoff $50 Stock Price at Expiration $50 Terminal value of investment in bond Terminal value of investment in call and bond

22 For Example: Here’s a put and a call on SunMic. Each has a strike price of $60. The current stock price is $58.75, so the call is out of the money and the put is in the money. Both expire in one month. -Call- -Put- SunMic 58 3 / 4 60 Jan / / 8

23  Put-call parity implies that For Example: -Call- -Put- SunMic 58 3 / 4 60 Jan / / 8

24 Determinants of Option Value price of the underlying asset  The price of the underlying asset The value of a call rises (the value of a put falls) as the price of the underlying asset rises, all other things equal. delta The amount an option’s premium changes when the price of the underlying asset changes is called the option’s delta.

25 Determinants of Option Value strike price  The strike price The value of a call falls (the value of a put rises) as the strike price rises, all other things equal.

26 Determinants of Option Value  Time to expiration The value of both puts and calls rises as the time to expiration increases, all other things equal. theta The amount an option’s premium changes when its time to maturity changes is called the option’s theta.

27 Determinants of Option Value  Volatility The volatility of the underlying asset is a measure of how uncertain we are about future changes in an asset’s value. The more volatility increases, other things equal, the greater the chance that an option will do very well. The value of both puts and calls rises as the volatility of the underlying asset increases.

28 Determinants of Option Value  The risk-free rate of interest The value of a call rises (the value of a put falls) when the risk-free interest rate rises.

29 The Black-Scholes Formula The Black-Scholes pricing formula for a “plain vanilla” call option when the stock price is S, the strike price is X, the risk-free rate is r per annum and the time to expiration is t years is: N(*) is the cumulative standard normal distribution evaluated at *, and

30 The Black-Scholes Formula d 1 and d 2 are functions of the stock price, the strike price, the interest rate, time and volatility: compare
