No, it won't work that way. Stock price quotes either during market open or after hours tell you what prior price a trade was made. It can't tell you with certainty what the price would be if you tried to make a new trade. So in your example, if you were to buy a stock at $15 in an after hours trade, the following day the market would set a new price which might be higher or lower. Most likely, but, not positively, the price would be close to the prior day's closing price of $10.
