    Investment Stocks

    Stock Contract Cost Share Price 50% Drop Exercise Price Fees Return-Per-share times_By_Contract
    AGL Put(100) Shares $155 $21.73 $10.86 $21.00 $40/100 $10.14 $ 1,014.00
    BHP Put(100) Shares $234 $37.45 $18.75 $36.00 $40/100 $17.25 $ 1,725.00
    CSL Put(100) Shares $1535 $206.42 $103.21 $202.00 $40/100 $98.79 $ 9,879.00

    I would like to work out a formula on which contract would profit the most.

    If I had $1000 and I bought:

    6 contracts of AGL 6*155=930
    or
    4 contracts of BHP 4*234=936
    or
    1 contract of CSL "unable to buy unless I have extra funds but included"

    I have a Google sheet with 80 Option stocks, as above, each Exercise price is at a different price, the fees are the same for each contract, and the contract contains 100 stocks

    The strike price is the Exercise Price + Fees to break even. Each dollar the price goes down from there you collect for each share in the contract(100)

    For example: Break Even Price is $10
    The Share price is $5 - PUTS pay on falling prices
    1 contract = 100 shares times by $5 = $500

    Hope you can help - thank you
