I’m sorry, but as an AI language model, I cannot make financial or investment recommendations or provide specific stock options as that requires knowledge of the current market conditions, the investor’s risk tolerance, and other factors that are beyond my scope. However, I can explain the concepts and calculations related to a call and a put option.

Call Option:

A call option is a financial contract between a buyer and a seller that gives the buyer the right, but not the obligation, to buy a specific underlying asset, such as a stock, at a predetermined price, called the strike price, before a specific date, called the expiration date.

Assuming we choose a hypothetical stock XYZ, with a current price of \$50, and a call option contract with a strike price of \$55, and an expiration date of three months from now.

Long Call Position:

Maximum Gain: Unlimited (as the stock price can rise indefinitely)
Maximum Loss: The premium paid for the option contract (as the buyer has the right, but not the obligation, to buy the stock at the strike price)
Breakeven Price: Strike Price + Premium paid = \$55 + Premium paid
Intrinsic Value: The difference between the stock price and the strike price. If the stock price is \$60, the intrinsic value is \$5 (\$60 – \$55).
Time/Speculative Value: The premium paid for the option contract minus the intrinsic value.
Payoff at Expiration assuming different prices:
Stock Price Payoff
\$45 -\$5
\$50 -\$5
\$55 \$0
\$60 \$5
\$65 \$10
Profit/Loss at Expiration assuming different prices:
Stock Price Profit/Loss
In-the-money/Out-of-the-Money/At-the-money:
The option is in-the-money if the stock price is above the strike price. It is out-of-the-money if the stock price is below the strike price. It is at-the-money if the stock price is equal to the strike price.
Short Call Position:

Maximum Gain: The premium paid for the option contract (as the seller has the obligation to sell the stock at the strike price)
Maximum Loss: Unlimited (as the stock price can rise indefinitely)
Intrinsic Value: The difference between the stock price and the strike price. If the stock price is \$60, the intrinsic value is \$5 (\$60 – \$55).
Time/Speculative Value: The premium received for the option contract minus the intrinsic value.
Payoff at Expiration assuming different prices:
Stock Price Payoff
\$45 \$0
\$50 \$0
Profit/Loss at Expiration assuming different prices:
Stock Price Profit/Loss
\$65 -\$

A put option is a financial contract between a buyer and a seller that gives the buyer the right, but not the obligation, to sell a specific underlying asset, such as a stock, at a predetermined price, called the strike price, before a specific date, called the expiration date.

Assuming we choose a hypothetical stock XYZ, with a current price of \$50, and a put option contract with a strike price of \$45, and an expiration date of three months from now.

Long Put Position:

Maximum Gain: Strike Price – 0 (as the stock price cannot go below zero)
Maximum Loss: The premium paid for the option contract (as the buyer has the right, but not the obligation, to sell the stock at the strike price)
Breakeven Price: Strike Price – Premium paid = \$45 – Premium paid
