Purchasing Apple 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" Apple calls. Remember, the seller must deliver Apple Inc stock to the call owner when a call is exercised.

In The Money vs. Out of Money Option Contracts on Apple

Analyzing Apple's in-the-money options over time can help investors to take a profitable long position in Apple regardless of its overall volatility. This is especially true when Apple's options are deep in the money. These options can be identified using deltas that are over 0.75. Deep in-the-money Apple's options could be used as guardians of the underlying stock as they move almost dollar for dollar with Apple's stock while costing only a fraction of its price.
Apple's latest option contracts expiring on 2022-08-12 are carrying combined implied volatility of 29.91 with a put-to-call open interest ratio of 1.14 over 130 outstanding agreements suggesting investors are buying more puts than calls on contracts expiring on 2022-08-12. The current put volume is at 249393, with calls trading at the volume of 268239. This yields a 0.93 put-to-call volume ratio. The Apple option chain provides detailed quote and price information for the current Apple Inc option contracts. It shows all of Apple's listed puts, calls, expiration dates, strike prices, and other pricing information.

Open Interest Against 2022-08-12 Option Contracts

Apple 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 Apple's lending market. For example, when Apple'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 Apple, he or she must hedge the risk by shorting Apple stock over its option's life.
The chart above shows Apple'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. Apple's open interest chart also provides vital information regarding the liquidity of an option. If there is no open interest for Apple's option, there is no secondary market available for investors to trade.

Apple Maximum Pain Price across 2022-08-12 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 Apple 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.
Apple's stock options are financial instruments that give investors the right to buy or sell shares of Apple Inc common stock at a specified price for a given time period. Generally speaking, an option to purchase or sell Apple stock makes it part of the underlying stock when the option's price is tied to the movement of the underlying stock. If Apple's stock price goes up or down, the stock options follow.

Please note that buying 'in-the-money' options on Apple lessens the impact of time decay, as they carry both intrinsic and time value. So, even if Apple'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 Apple 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 Apple Stock moves the wrong way.

Apple Inc In The Money Call Balance

When Apple's strike price is surpassing the current stock price, the option contract against Apple Inc stock is said to be in the money. When it comes to buying Apple'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 Apple Inc 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.

Apple'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 Apple 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.

Apple'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 Apple'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.

With Apple trading at $164.92, that is roughly $3.08. If you think that the market is fully incorporating Apple's daily price movement you should consider buying Apple Inc options at the current volatility level of 29.91%.

Investors also form their own opinion of Apple's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Apple's true underlying value. Investors use various methods to calculate intrinsic value and buy a stock when its market value falls below its intrinsic value. Because Apple's market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect Apple's underlying business (such as a pandemic or basic market pessimism), market value can vary widely from intrinsic value.
Please note, there is a significant difference between Apple's value and its price as these two are different measures arrived at by different means. Investors typically determine Apple value by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, Apple's price is the amount at which it trades on the open market and represents the number that a seller and buyer find agreeable to each party.
