Eg, an IBM call option with a strike price of 100 with IBM stock at 110, has an intrinsic value of 10 & is “in-the-money.” If IBM were at 95, the call option would have no intrinsic value & would be “out-of-the-money.” If IBM were at 100, there would still be no intrinsic value, but the option would be “at-the-money.” For put options: The amount the market price of the underlying security is below the option's strike price. Eg, a Xerox put with a strike price of 35 with Xerox at 30, has an intrinsic value of 5. If Xerox were at 35 or higher, the put option would have no intrinsic value.

Used in connection with options and warrants. For a call option or a warrant on shares, it is the amount by which the share price exceeds the exercise price of the option or warrant. For a put option, it is the amount by which the exercise price exceeds the share price, i.e. it is the net amount received if an investor exercises the warrant or option and then closes out the position by buying a share (for a put option) or selling a share (for a call option or a warrant). For example, a call option with an exercise price of 100p when the share price is 150p has intrinsic value of 50p. The holder of the option could exercise the option, buying a share for 100p and then immediately sell the share for 150p, giving a net pay off of 50p. Intrinsic value has a minimum value of zero, since an investor would never exercise an option to give a loss.

A company's intrinsic value, or underlying value, is used to calculate its projected worth. You determine intrinsic value by subtracting a company's long-term debt from its anticipated future assets, including profits, the potential for increased efficiency, and the sale of new company share.

This method weighs the current price of a share against its future worth. Critics of using intrinsic worth as a way to evaluate potential investments point out that all of the numbers except debt are hypothetical.
