In this case, the put position is opened at a strike of $15.00, which is already $0.40 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 $2.00 per share. The final position can be considered as having a discount of $1.60 per share over the underlying price of $14.60 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.
