Equity Portfolio Management Using Option Price Information

Peter Christoffersen, Xuhui (Nick) Pan

Research output: Working paperResearch


We survey the recent academic literature that uses option-implied information to construct equity portfolios. Studies show that equity managers can earn a positive alpha by using information in individual equity options, by using stocks' exposure to information in market index options, and by using stocks' exposure to crude oil option information. Option-implied information can also help construct better mean-variance portfolios and better estimates of market beta.
