Chapter 22 – MBA5041 Options and Corporate Finance Option Basics Combinations of Options An Option ‑ Pricing Formula Stocks and Bonds as Options
Chapter 22 – MBA5042 Options Contracts: Preliminaries An option gives the holder the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell a given quantity of an asset on (or perhaps before) a given date, at prices agreed upon today. Calls versus Puts –Call options gives the holder the right, but not the obligation, to buy a given quantity of some asset at some time in the future, at prices agreed upon today. When exercising a call option, you “call in” the asset. –Put options gives the holder the right, but not the obligation, to sell a given quantity of an asset at some time in the future, at prices agreed upon today. When exercising a put, you “put” the asset to someone.
Chapter 22 – MBA5043 Exercising the Option –The act of buying or selling the underlying asset through the option contract. Strike Price or Exercise Price –Refers to the fixed price in the option contract at which the holder can buy or sell the underlying asset. Expiration date –The maturity date of the option is referred to as the expiration date, or expiry. European versus American options –European options can be exercised only at expiration date. –American options can be exercised at any time up to expiration date.
Chapter 22 – MBA5044 American Put Option Mr. Nash holds an American put option on Delta Triangle, a non-dividend-paying stock. The strike price of the put is $40, and Delta Triangle’s stock is currently selling for $35 per share. The current market price of the put is $4.50. Is this option correctly priced? If not, should Mr. Nash buy or sell the option in order to take advantage of the mispricing?
Chapter 22 – MBA5045 In-the-Money –The exercise price of a call option is less than the spot price of the underlying asset. For a put option, exercise price is greater than spot price. At-the-Money –The exercise price is equal to the spot price of the underlying asset. Out-of-the-Money –The exercise price of a put option is more than the spot price of the underlying asset. For a put option, exercise price is less than the spot price.

Chapter 22 – MBA5047 Call Option Payoff at Expiration At expiration, an American call option is worth the same as a European option with the same characteristics. –If the call is in-the-money, it is worth S T – E. –If the call is out-of-the-money, it is worthless: C = Max[S T – E, 0] where S T is the value of the stock at expiration (time T) E is the exercise price. C is the value of the call option at expiration
Chapter 22 – MBA50411 Put Option Payoff at Expiration At expiration, an American put option is worth the same as a European option with the same characteristics. If the put is in-the-money, it is worth E – S T. If the put is out-of-the-money, it is worthless. P = Max[E – S T, 0]

Chapter 22 – MBA50415 Combinations of Options Puts and calls can serve as the building blocks for more complex option contracts. If you understand this, you can become a financial engineer, tailoring the risk-return profile to meet your client’s needs.
Chapter 22 – MBA50416 Buy a Call and a Put -- Straddle
Chapter 22 – MBA50417 Protective Put Strategy: Buy a Put and Buy the Underlying Stock
Chapter 22 – MBA50419 Suppose you just bought 1,000 shares of Intel stocks at $___/share, and at the same time short 10 contracts (1000 shares) of Intel call option with the exercise price at $___/share. Using the information from finance.yahoo.com, find out (1) your profit when the stock price on Jan 2008 is $19; (2) your profits when the stock prices on Jan 2008 are $21, $23 and $27, respectively.
Chapter 22 – MBA50420 Options Trading CBOE (started in 1973) –Equity options –Index options –Options on ETF –Interest rate options Particularly, in 2006, CBOE developed new product stock volatility index (VIX).

Chapter 22 – MBA50421 Put-Call Parity Identical payoff –Buy stock + buy put = buy call + buy bond –See page 624 Parity in price –Price of underlying stock + price of put = price of call + present value of exercise price Applications –Protective put –Covered call –Synthetic stock
Chapter 22 – MBA50422 The Black-Scholes Model The Black-Scholes Model is Where C 0 = the value of a European option at time t = 0 r = the risk-free interest rate. N(d) = Probability that a standardized, normally distributed, random variable will be less than or equal to d.
Chapter 22 – MBA50424 Stocks and Bonds as Options Levered Equity is a Call Option. –The underlying asset comprise the assets of the firm. –The strike price is the payoff of the bond. If at the maturity of their debt, the assets of the firm are greater in value than the debt, the shareholders have an in- the-money call, they will pay the bondholders and “call in” the assets of the firm. If at the maturity of the debt the shareholders have an out- of-the-money call, they will not pay the bondholders (i.e. the shareholders will declare bankruptcy) and let the call expire.
