Playing for Keeps H$5 Call

Symbol:PLAYF.CA
Status:Inactive
Delist Date:Dec 10, 2012

Description

Options are Hollywood Derivatives based around a specific event. Typically 'calls' and 'puts' options are offered for a MovieStock opening in wide release. This form of speculation lasts only for the opening weekend.

Call

A call option speculates that the related MovieStock will have a higher box office take for its opening weekend than the strike price. A $20 call has a strike price of $20, and will delist at zero if the movie does not make $20 million or more during opening weekend. If the film makes more than $20 million it will cash out at a price determined by the following formula: (Actual Box Office - Strike Price). For Example: if the film made $25 million the call would cash out at H$5.00 (H$25 - H$20).
