Synthetic Long Discount Alert: PROTEOSTASIS THERAPEUTICS INC. COMMON S $PTI trading at a 11.01% discount for the 18-Jan-2019 expiration

Quantcha now offering unlimited commission-free options trading.

Quantchabot has detected a promising Synthetic Long Stock trade opportunity for PROTEOSTASIS THERAPEUTICS INC. COMMON S (PTI) for the 18-Jan-2019 expiration period. You can analyze the opportunity in depth over at the Quantcha Options Search Engine.

PTI was recently trading at $8.75 and has an implied volatility of 174.95% for this period. Based on an analysis of the options available for PTI expiring on 18-Jan-2019, there is a 68.27% likelihood that the underlying will close within the analyzed range of $2.78-$27.95 at expiration. In this scenario, the average linear return for the trade would be 62.18%.

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 $10.00, which is already $1.25 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 $2.20 per share. The final position can be considered as having a discount of $0.95 per share over the underlying price of $8.75 for a 10.86% 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.
