In stock analysis this expression is used in relation with the job of identifying, as accurately as possible, the value of an organization and its earnings.


While talking about options pricing, intrinsic value alludes to the difference between the strike price of the option and the present market price of the stock.


Intrinsic value is often considered an umbrella term with helpful implications in a few areas.


Most of the time, usually the term means the job of an analyst who aims and tries to gauge an asset's intrinsic value with the help of fundamental as well as technical analysis.
