Purchasing 3M options can give investors a meaningful hedge against losses and, therefore, could be used conservatively to decrease the volatility of your portfolio. However, many options could also amount to little more than gambling, significantly enhancing your overall portfolio risk. One simple example of these aggressive strategies is the sale of "uncovered" 3M calls. Remember, the seller must deliver 3M Company stock to the call owner when a call is exercised.

In The Money vs. Out of Money Option Contracts on 3M

Analyzing 3M's in-the-money options over time can help investors to take a profitable long position in 3M regardless of its overall volatility. This is especially true when 3M's options are deep in the money. These options can be identified using deltas that are over 0.75. Deep in-the-money 3M's options could be used as guardians of the underlying stock as they move almost dollar for dollar with 3M's stock while costing only a fraction of its price.
3M's latest option contracts expiring on 2022-09-30 are carrying combined implied volatility of 36.37 with a put-to-call open interest ratio of 1.45 over 144 outstanding agreements suggesting investors are buying way more puts than calls on contracts expiring on 2022-09-30. The current put volume is at 918, with calls trading at the volume of 1129. This yields a 0.81 put-to-call volume ratio. The 3M option chain provides detailed quote and price information for the current 3M Company option contracts. It shows all of 3M's listed puts, calls, expiration dates, strike prices, and other pricing information.

Open Interest Against 2022-09-30 Option Contracts

3M option prices can potentially be used to forecast stock returns because most option chains provide information not only about the current prices but also about the future conditions in 3M's lending market. For example, when 3M's puts are not actively trading or completely missing in the marketplace, investors can use it to internalize expected shorting costs. So if an investor is writing a put option on 3M, he or she must hedge the risk by shorting 3M stock over its option's life.
The chart above shows 3M's distribution of open interest by maturity on contracts that have not yet been settled. The area between the two highest points is the projection of the price at expiration. 3M's open interest chart also provides vital information regarding the liquidity of an option. If there is no open interest for 3M's option, there is no secondary market available for investors to trade.

3M Maximum Pain Price across 2022-09-30 Option Contracts

Max pain usually refers to a trading concept that asserts that market manipulation can cause the market price of particular securities such as 3M close to expiration to expire worthless. According to most research, approximately 10% to 15% of all stock options are exercised, while about 35% expire worthlessly, with roughly 50% traded out before the expiration date. So, Max pain occurs when market makers reach a net positive position across all options at a strike price where option holders stand to lose the most money. By contrast, option sellers may reap the most after selling more options than buying, causing them to expire worthless.
3M's stock options are financial instruments that give investors the right to buy or sell shares of 3M Company common stock at a specified price for a given time period. Generally speaking, an option to purchase or sell 3M stock makes it part of the underlying stock when the option's price is tied to the movement of the underlying stock. If 3M's stock price goes up or down, the stock options follow.
Additionally, see Correlation Analysis.
Please note that buying 'in-the-money' options on 3M lessens the impact of time decay, as they carry both intrinsic and time value. So, even if 3M's value remains static through the expiration date, the investor can sell to close an 'in-the-money' option to avoid a potential loss. However, in-the-money 3M contracts are usually more expensive to enter than their out-of-the-money counterparts. So keep in mind that while the payoffs on an in-the-money trade can be high, the investors could ultimately experience a more consequential loss if 3M Stock moves the wrong way.

3M Company In The Money Call Balance

When 3M's strike price is surpassing the current stock price, the option contract against 3M Company stock is said to be in the money. When it comes to buying 3M's options that are 'In the Money' or 'Out of the Money', the choice depends on your outlook for the underlying security, financial situation, and what you are trying to achieve.
While 'out-of-the-money' option contracts written on 3M Company are typically viewed as the more aggressive, there are potential upsides to purchasing these types of options contracts. For one, the cost to buy an 'Out of the Money' option is lower than the cost to buy an 'In the Money' option. This cost-benefit is due to the fact that at the time of the purchase, 'Out of the Money' contracts have no intrinsic value. So, while the potential for a 100% loss is more significant, the cost and risk to enter the trade are lower.

3M Current Options Market Mood

3M's open interest and total value indicators provide investors with the necessary information to digest the overall options buildup for its expiring contracts. In addition, it helps 3M Stock's traders understand whether a recent fall or rise in the market is unreasonable and if the time has come to take contrarian positions. These ratios are calculated based on options trading volumes and current open interest.

Put-to-Call Open Interest

Put-to-Call Volume

Most options investors, including buyers and sellers of 3M's calls and puts, are not very successful. It is estimated that an average options trader loses somewhere between 80% to 90% of the time. 3M's option open interest and volume spread between outstanding puts and calls are regarded by many investors as reliable indicators of the overall future market direction. Using current 3M's option volume and open interest to make an investment decision is considered a contrarian-sentiment measure that can be utilized in many timing strategies in both derivative and spot marketplace.

Rule 16 of the current 3M contract

Base on the Rule 16, the options market is currently suggesting that 3M Company will have an average daily up or down price movement of about 2.27% per day over the life of the 2022-09-30 option contract. With 3M trading at $112.99, that is roughly $2.57. If you think that the market is fully incorporating 3M's daily price movement you should consider buying 3M Company options at the current volatility level of 36.37%. But if you have an opposite viewpoint you should avoid it and even consider selling them.

If investors know 3M will grow in the future, the company's valuation will be higher. The financial industry is built on trying to define current growth potential and future valuation accurately. All the valuation information about 3M listed above have to be considered, but the key to understanding future value is determining which factors weigh more heavily than others.

Investors also form their own opinion of 3M's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is 3M's true underlying value.
