Exercise value

Exercise value

The value of an in-the-money option if it was exercised today (before the expiration date). For a call option, this is the difference between the current asset price and the stike price. For a put option, it is the difference between the strike price and the current asset price.

Exercise Value

The profit that an option holder would receive by exercising an in-the-money option. That is, the exercise value of an option is how much the strike price is below the underlying asset (for a call) or above the underlying asset (for a put). These options have value because they always result in a profit. As a result, they may be sold for much higher price than the investor paid for the option. See also: Intrinsic Value.
