Synthetic Long Discount Alert: QUTOUTIAO INC. AMERICAN DEPOSITARY SHARES $QTT trading at a 10.45% discount for the 19-Jul-2019 expiration

Quantcha now offering unlimited commission-free options trading.

Quantchabot has detected a promising Synthetic Long Stock trade opportunity for QUTOUTIAO INC. AMERICAN DEPOSITARY SHARES (QTT) for the 19-Jul-2019 expiration period. You can analyze the opportunity in depth over at the Quantcha Options Search Engine.

QTT was recently trading at $11.33 and has an implied volatility of 57.68% for this period. Based on an analysis of the options available for QTT expiring on 19-Jul-2019, there is a 68.27% likelihood that the underlying will close within the analyzed range of $6.75-$19.34 at expiration. In this scenario, the average linear return for the trade would be 48.50%.

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 $12.50, which is already $1.17 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 $2.35 per share. The final position can be considered as having a discount of $1.18 per share over the underlying price of $11.33 for a 10.41% 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.
