The Compound Option Approach to American Options on Jump-Diffusions
AbstractWe derive analytical valuation formulas for compound options when the underlying asset follows a jump-diffusion process. We then apply these results to value extendible options, American call options on stocks that follow jump-diffusion processes and pay discrete dividends, and American options on assets that evolve as jump-diffusion processes and pay continuous proportional dividends. Numerical implementation is in progress.
