Lecture 18

### Option Valuation Methods

Case 1

Stock price falls to \$60

Option value = \$0

Case 2

Stock price rises to \$106.67

Option value = \$26.67

Genentech call options have an exercise price of \$80 and expire in one year.

### Option Valuation Methods

If we are risk neutral, the expected return on Genentech call options is 2.5%. Accordingly, we can determine the price of the option as follows, given equal probabilities of each outcome.

### Binomial Pricing

The prior example can be generalized as the binomial model and shown as follows.

### Binomial Pricing

a = 1.0083

u = 1.1215

d = .8917

Pu = .5075

Pd = .4925

Example

Price = 36 s = .40 t = 90/365 D t = 30/365

Strike = 40r = 10%

### Binomial Model

The price of an option, using the Binomial method, is significantly impacted by the time intervals selected. The Genentech example illustrates this fact.

### Price Comparions

• Black Scholes price= 1.70

• Binomial price = 1.51
