If the strike (exercise) price for a certain set of options on McCall stock carry a strike price of \$40, and the options run for 6 months (180 days), determine the Black-Scholes model values for: N (d
1
),
N (d
2
),
N (- d
1
),
and N (- d
2
)
. (Assume the risk-free rate is 10% and that the stock pays no dividends.) 2. Given the information in question one (1) above and your calculated values for N (d
1
),
N (d
2
),
N (- d
1
),
and N (- d
2
)
, determine: a. The price (premium) one must pay for a
call option
(C
t
) on McCall stock using the Black-Scholes model. b. How much of the call’s value is composed of intrinsic value? How much of the call’s value is composed of a time premium? (Explain how you determined these values.) 3. Given the information in question one (1) above and your calculated values for N (d
1
),
N (d
2
),
N (- d
1
),
and N (- d
2
)
, determine: a. The price (premium) of a
put option
(P
t
) for McCall stock using the Black-Scholes model. (Use the put/call parity model to confirm your answer.) b. How much of the put’s value (price) is composed of intrinsic value? How much of the put’s value is composed of a time premium? (Explain how you determined these values.) 4. You are considering buying options on the stock of the Wallace & Fischer Corporation, a producer of jet aircraft engine parts. The company’s stock is currently trading at \$40 per share and historically has had a volatility measure (standard deviation) of 30%.

N (d

and N (- d

)

),
and N (- d
2
)
, determine: a. The price (premium) of a
call option
(C

How much of the put’s value is composed of a time premium? (Explain how you determined these values.) 7. A four month (120 day) call option on a certain stock has an exercise (strike) price of \$62 and is currently selling for \$10. If the corresponding put option for this same stock (with the same \$62 strike price and four month expiration length) is selling for \$15.40, what is the underlying stock’s current market price? Use the put/call parity model to determine your answer. (Assume the current risk-free rate is 4%, and that the stock pays no dividends.) 8. Assume a 3 month (90 day) call option on Coreman & Steel Corporation (a maker of oil drilling equipment) stock is selling for \$1.20. The corresponding put option (with the same strike price and three month expiration length) is selling for \$6.70. If Coreman & Steel stock is currently trading at \$19.70 per share, and has an annual dividend yield of 2.2%, at what strike price can the stock’s three month put and call options can be exercised? (Assume a risk-free rate of 6.5%.)
