Based on an analysis of the options available for CODX expiring on 21-May-2021, there is a 68.27% likelihood that the underlying will close within the analyzed range of $5.08-$35.94 at expiration. In this scenario, the average linear return for the trade would be 48.29%.

Upside potential: This synthetic long position offers the same potential benefits and liabilities as a long stock position, but at a discount due to the significant premium at-the-money puts are trading at over calls. In this case, the long call position is opened at a strike of $13.00, which is already $0.49 in the money. An out-of-the-money put at the same strike is sold to finance the call, resulting in a net credit of $0.90 per share. The final position can be considered as having a discount of $1.39 per share over the underlying price of $13.49 for a 10.30% total.

Downside risk: This discount is generally a sign of the stock facing considerable short pressure, and may indicate that the stock has become hard to borrow. However, if you have a long view of the underlying over this period, it could be a good opportunity to benefit from the upside at a major discount.
