Coolmist produces high quality juices and competes head-on with the large national brands. Because of this stiff competition, they find it very difficult to raise the price of their juice. Oranges are a key raw material. As a rule the risk managers of Coolmist are NOT interested in designing an expensive risk management insurance strategy aimed at protecting their profit margins against small changes in the price of oranges. However, they are very interested in designing a cheaper risk management strategy that will protect margins against large changes in he price of oranges. Given this scenario, what financial engineering strategy would be most beneficial to Coolmist

    Being a juice producer, for which the raw material is oranges, Coolmist has to keep an eye on the prices of oranges. To protect herself from an increase in the cost of oranges, the financial engineering strategy that would be most beneficial to her is that she should buy in-the-money calls on oranges so that she will have an option to buy the oranges at the pre-decided strike price of the call option.

    By doing the above, she would be protected against the price hike.
