Quantcha now offering unlimited commission-free options trading.

Quantchabot has detected a promising Synthetic Long Stock trade opportunity for BP PRUDHOE BAY (BPT) for the 20-Sep-2019 expiration period. You can analyze the opportunity in depth over at the Quantcha Options Search Engine.

BPT was recently trading at $23.28 and has an implied volatility of 24.63% for this period. Based on an analysis of the options available for BPT expiring on 20-Sep-2019, there is a 68.27% likelihood that the underlying will close within the analyzed range of $14.13-$39.67 at expiration. In this scenario, the average linear return for the trade would be 77.21%.

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 $22.50, which is already $0.78 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 $3.10 per share. The final position can be considered as having a discount of $3.88 per share over the underlying price of $23.28 for a 16.67% 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.
