The stock price of Tesla (TSLA) is trading at $290 per share in the beginning of Jan
2023. You heard that TSLA intend to build plants which will cost $10 billion in Mexico. Yet
the plan has not been formally approved by the government of Mexico but the result will
be known 3 months later. If the plan is approved, it will cause a large rise of TSLA's price
(likely $300-$370). However, if the plan is rejected, it is likely that TSLA's price will slump
largely (likely $210-$260) due to the huge sunk cost in the preparation stage. Suppose
there are following European equity options (with 3-month maturity from now) available in
the market. Design an option strategy which is likely to utilize this opportunity.
