Synthetic Long Discount Alert: B&G FOODS $BGS trading at a 11.02% discount for the 15-Jan-2021 expiration

Quantcha now offering unlimited commission-free options trading.

Quantchabot has detected a promising Synthetic Long Stock trade opportunity for B&G FOODS (BGS) for the 15-Jan-2021 expiration period. You can analyze the opportunity in depth over at the Quantcha Options Search Engine.

BGS was recently trading at $26.40 and has an implied volatility of 16.91% for this period. Based on an analysis of the options available for BGS expiring on 15-Jan-2021, there is a 68.27% likelihood that the underlying will close within the analyzed range of $16.53-$48.41 at expiration. In this scenario, the average linear return for the trade would be 72.88%.

Upside potential: This synthetic long position offers the same potential benefits and liabilities as a long stock position, but at a discount due to the significant premium at-the-money puts are trading at over calls. In this case, the put position is opened at a strike of $27.50, which is already $1.10 in-the-money. However, its sale more than offsets this moneyness and the cost of the long call that the trade results in a net credit of of $4.00 per share. The final position can be considered as having a discount of $2.90 per share over the underlying price of $26.40 for a 10.98% 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.
