Suppose the following scenario
I have an option to buy stock X for 20,000 Shares, The break-even price is reached at price 15.00
The stock is currently trading at 14.50, the paid for option price is the difference
Suppose I like this stock and want to hold it in my portfolio
I can either exercise the option or purchase it outright on the market,
but because it is such an large share purchase I might have liquidty issues.
Will exercising my option provide better liquidity as outright purchasing the stock on the market?
