Synthetic Stock

A position in which one owns a call option and has sold a put option on the same underlying asset, which is a stock. A synthetic stock acts like a stock because both open the investor to theoretically unlimited gains and losses depending on the price movements of the stock. Because of this, a synthetic stock is taxed like a regular stock.

synthetic stock

The purchase of a call and simultaneous sale of a put on the same stock. This combination produces unlimited potential gains if the stock rises but unlimited potential losses if the stock falls—the same results as if the stock were owned.
