La Z Maximum Pain Price across 2022-12-16 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 La Z 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.
La Z's stock options are financial instruments that give investors the right to buy or sell shares of La-Z-Boy common stock at a specified price for a given time period.

If La Z's stock price goes up or down, the stock options follow.

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

While 'out-of-the-money' option contracts written on La-Z-Boy 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.
