Intrinsic Value of an Option
The profit that an option holder would receive by exercising an in-the-money option. That is, the intrinsic 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 intrinsic value because they always result in a profit. As a result, they may be sold for a much higher price than the investor paid for the option.
