[Solved]1What are the alternative actions Gerald and Katie’s could take in 30 days’ time?

Assessment Activity 4 Short answer questions Derivatives

Background

Gerald and Katie have worked very long hours on their farm for over 30 years.  They have sold their farm and now have assets worth $3 million. Both Gerald and Katie are working in the city now but plan to retire in the next 5-7 years.

They seek your advice about an options strategy which involves buying 200 call option contracts with an exercise price of $20.00 per share in Mintmaker Ltd.  One option contract = 100 shares. These options expire in 6 months. The current price of a Mintmaker share is $20.00.  Gerald and Katie believe Mintmaker Ltd shares will increase dramatically as they are in the final stages of developing a new recycling technology which the government has expressed interest in.

The option premium is $0.10 per share.  Gerald and Katie believe the Mintmaker Ltd price per share could increase to between $30.00 - $35.00.

You have already explained the risks associated with options strategies and Gerald and Katie ask you to clarify the financial consequences of such a strategy.
