Fin 4424 Notes 4/6- Executive and Employee stock options -bonus/incentive to align interests with shareholders; reduce agency problem *Don’t work as well as expected, more decision making power for employees could be better, but for executives more decision-making authority allows manipulations of earnings, can make the stock look better… *Dilution: executives only have to pay 10/sh *(executives) Graph shows lowest point in stock price was where they claimed they granted the stock option *cant prove but probably granted at fiscal year end and placed the grant date at the lowest stock price. This is called STOCK OPTION BACKDATE, to get a more favorable strike price, so it wont cost the company *If granted in the money, it is basically like giving them a bonus -These options can be worth A LOT for the executives -CEO can be on board, swindle investors *Another graph shows large quantitiy of back dating or managers can predict market movement, Microsoft admitted to it. Grant in the money options but not expensing it to the company **Now the SEC requires one to report it within 2 days, can no longer have the advantage of hindsight -Can still backdate by two days… Put/Call Parity Stock+Put(right to sell)=B(risk free)+Call(right to buy) S + P = B + C -have to be with same comp. ; same strike price x; expire @same time; risk free matures at same time options expire, par=strike price s S+P x LP x s x x s B+C x x LC s x Synthetic Position: get payoff without buying S=B+C-P Ban Short Selling- what happens? -S=-B-C+P Short Selling = negative stock position, borrow shares you don’t own, you sell them and hope price falls and repurchase for cheaper. Like buying shorts example. Your friend buys a pair of shorts; you borrow them and then return them for cash. You hope they go on sale so you buy them at a cheaper price and give them back to your friend, so you hope to turn a profit. When short sells banned- option activity increased Example: Stock Price=50; P= $1.15; x= 45; rf= 5%; exp. In 1 yr. Call Price?? Answer: 50+1.15=B+C B= 45/1.05 or 45e^-.05(1) (continuous compounding)= 42.81 C=8.3 If don’t know either put or call use the Black Scholes model, which basically uses rocket science…(we wont need to calculate) th th CASE DUE 18 ! QUIZ Wednesday 13 : On Derivatives Futures and Forwards: Intuition Forward: btwn 2 people, ex. sell your car at 10000 to me next July Future: traded on exchanges, not 2 people, less counter party risk and safety measures Ex. Wheat Farmer: risk profile Baker risk profile Long Forward Short Forward Opposite. Use Forward Contract, Wheat sells, baker buys. Agree on wheat sale for in the future. Star= Cash Hedging the loss, eliminate risk for both, except if someone backs out
