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 long call position is opened at a strike of $5.00, which is already $0.12 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 $0.75 per share. The final position can be considered as having a discount of $0.87 per share over the underlying price of $5.12 for a 16.99% 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.
