Glossary Term: CALL OPTION

Definition(s) for CALL OPTION:


1. ) also called call price, it is an option that permits its holder to purchase a specific asset at a predetermined price until a certain date. It is an issuer's right to repurchase an issue of interest rates fall such that the bonds can be repurchased and a new, lower-rate issue sold. A call feature is normal for nearly all long-term bond issues, and it operates to the detriment of bond owners.

2. ) An option that gives the buyer the right, but not the obligation, to purchase the underlying futures contract at the strike price on or before the expiration date.

3. ) A contract that gives the holder the right to buy the underlying stock at a specified price (the strike price) within a fixed period of time.

4. ) An option contract that gives the owner the right to buy the underlying security at a specified price (its strike price) for a certain, fixed period of time (until its expiration). For the writer of a call option, the contract represents an obligation to sell the underlying stock if the option is assigned.

5. ) The right to buy stock or shares at an agreed price on a future date.

6. ) A contract that gives the buyer the right to buy a given quantity of the underlying asset at a predetermined price on or before a specified date. If the option or right is not exercised the option expires and the buyer forfeits the money.

7. ) ‘‘Futures, forward, and standby contracts.’’
