Synthetic Long Discount Alert: PAYSIGN INC $PAYS trading at a 9.85% discount for the 21-Jan-2022 expiration

Quantcha now offering unlimited commission-free options trading.

Quantchabot has detected a promising Synthetic Long Stock trade opportunity for PAYSIGN INC (PAYS) for the 21-Jan-2022 expiration period. You can analyze the opportunity in depth over at the Quantcha Options Search Engine.

PAYS was recently trading at $10.79 and has an implied volatility of 49.34% for this period. Based on an analysis of the options available for PAYS expiring on 21-Jan-2022, there is a 68.27% likelihood that the underlying will close within the analyzed range of $3.86-$33.04 at expiration. In this scenario, the average linear return for the trade would be 68.38%.

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 $10.00, which is already $0.79 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 $0.30 per share. The final position can be considered as having a discount of $1.09 per share over the underlying price of $10.79 for a 10.10% 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.
