In this case, the long call position is opened at a strike of $15.00, which is already $0.11 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 $1.70 per share.

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.
