Investments. Week 10-2. 12.) Risk of a short position is to the upside. You could therefore buy the \$30 call for \$3. If the stock goes higher than 30, the loss on the short stock will be offset by the value of the call at expiration. Your max loss would be \$1 on the short stock and \$3 on the call purchase for a total of a \$4 loss if the stock closes at 30 on expiration day. Max potential profit would be if the stock went to zero: \$29 - \$3 = \$26 profit. To generate a profit, you need to make at least \$3 on the short position to offset the call purchase. This would occur at a stock price of \$26 or lower at expiration.
