In this case, the long call position is opened at a strike of $110.00, which is already $1.10 in the money. An out-of-the-money put at the same strike is sold to finance the call, resulting in a net credit of $36.60 per share. The final position can be considered as having a discount of $37.70 per share over the underlying price of $111.10 for a 33.93% total.

Downside risk: This discount is generally a sign of the stock facing considerable short pressure, and may indicate that the stock has become hard to borrow. However, if you have a long view of the underlying over this period, it could be a good opportunity to benefit from the upside at a major discount.
