Re: st: Black Scholes
I have not heard of the Caribbean footballer you describe. However, I would bet Joserra is asking about a method for estimating the value of options as devised by Fisher Black (now deceased) & Myron Scholes sometime in the 1970s.
So Joserra, you would be well advised to get a better handle on the Black-Scholes formula & obtain some data. If you have the option prices & terms (strike price, time to maturity, risk-free rate, dividend rate) then you should be able to get an estimate of the stock volatility. This would be the volatility implied by the option price & other known or estimated variables. Once you have gotten your data into Stata & struggled some with the inevitable difficulties, feel free to write again with more detailed --as opposed to open-ended-- questions.
