Synthetic Long Discount Alert: TURTLE BEACH CORPORATION COMMO $HEAR trading at a 11.34% 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 TURTLE BEACH CORPORATION COMMO (HEAR) for the 15-Jan-2021 expiration period. You can analyze the opportunity in depth over at the Quantcha Options Search Engine.

HEAR was recently trading at $19.97 and has an implied volatility of 61.98% for this period. Based on an analysis of the options available for HEAR expiring on 15-Jan-2021, there is a 68.27% likelihood that the underlying will close within the analyzed range of $5.49-$83.23 at expiration. In this scenario, the average linear return for the trade would be 81.77%.

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 $20.00, which is already $0.04 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 $2.30 per share. The final position can be considered as having a discount of $2.27 per share over the underlying price of $19.97 for a 11.34% 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.
