An option holder is not entitled to receive dividends unless he or she exercises their option before the stock goes ex dividend. 2. Which of the following statements is CORRECT? a. If the underlying stock does not pay a dividend, it makes good economic sense to exercise a call option as soon as the stock?s price exceeds the strike price by about 10%, because this permits the option holder to lock in an immediate profit. b. Call options generally sell at a price less than their exercise value. c. If a stock becomes riskier (more volatile), call options on the stock are likely to decline in value. d. Call options generally sell at prices above their exercise value, but for an in-the-money option, the greater the exercise value in relation to the strike price, the lower the premium on the option is likely to be. e. Because of the put-call parity relationship, under equilibrium conditions a put option on a stock must sell at exactly the same price as a call option on the stock. 3. Which of the following statements is CORRECT? a. An option's value is determined by its exercise value, which is the market price of the stock less its striking price. Thus, an option can't sell for more than its exercise value. b. As the stock?s price rises, the time value portion of an option on a stock increases because the difference between the price of the stock and the fixed strike price increases. c. Issuing options provides companies with a low cost method of raising capital. d. The market value of an option depends in part on the option's time to maturity and also on the variability of the underlying stock's price. e. The potential loss on an option decreases as the option sells at higher and higher prices because the profit margin gets bigger.,I think #1 e is correct and # 2 d is correct , but# 3 I am not sure.
