# Breakeven Prices

Stock: Hop # of Shares: 375,000 Stock Price: \$26.20 September 25.00 Put Price: \$0.80. September 27.50 Call Price: \$0.65. Based on the provided data only, what is the breakeven price for 1) Protective Put 2) Covered call 3) Collar What’s common among those strategies?

No one take this? It’s part of an EOC question.

1）27 2）25.55 3）26.35 common is they all have bounded profit or loss. for the collar, the middle part is a horizontal line which is the option price difference of the X_line. while, the underlying is a 45*line and you just have it realize the price differential profit.

I agree with all of you. All of them also have the underlying stock. In this case, the breakeven price is the initial net payment. Besides, “S0” is shown in max profit, max loss and breakeven price. If no underlying stock in the strategy, no “S0” is shown in the Max profit, Max loss and Breakeven price. I’ll call it “Stock Check”: no stock, no S0.

I posted this because I incorrectly used X to compute B.E. price for protective put.
