What is your dollar profit or loss

Problem: Suppose you own a stock that is currently trading for $65. You purchase it for $60. You would like to wait a while before you sell it because you think there is a good chance the stock will increase further.

Q1. How can you structure a transaction that will insure that you can sell the stock for $65, even if it falls below that price, say, to $60 or $55.

Q2. If that option costs you $5 and the stock reaches $75 at which time you sell it, what was your dollar profit? Did you exercise the option? Why or why not? Was buying the option a waste of money?

Q3. If the price of the stock falls to $57, what is your dollar profit or loss?
