Abstract: Continuing the research of an earlier AFIR-paper, we examine on the basis of a (partially) historical simulation approach return and risk of various rollover option strategies (put hedge; covered short call; collar). In addition to measures of shortfall risks we propose measures of excess returns (with respect to the same target) and analyse as well the consequences of alternative target returns on the shortfall risks resp. the excess chances. Finally we try to identify dominance relations between the different types of option stategies.
