For a call to be in-the-money, the underlying security must be trading at a price that is greater than the strike price of the call. In such a case, the call’s intrinsic value is equal to the price of the underlying asset minus the strike price of the option. Conversely, a put is in-the-money when the underlying security trades at a price lower than the option’s strike price. An in-the-money put has an intrinsic value equal to the put’s strike price minus the price of the underlying asset. An option is said to be out-of-the-money when it possesses no intrinsic value, only time value.
Consider a trader expecting increased volatility, but unable to predict its direction. There are option strategies that will respond profitably to the anticipated change in volatility while minimizing the impact of any directional movement. Even the trader who expects stock prices to remain in a narrow trading range can find an option strategy to take advantage of the situation. Options are the perfect instruments for turning such expectations into potentially profitable actions. They are also the instruments of choice for transferring certain kinds of risk, for hedging, and for custom-tailoring the risk-reward characteristics of a variety of investments.
For a put, the relationship is reversed: the intrinsic value of a put is zero when the stock price is greater than the strike price, and the strike price minus the stock price when the stock is lower than the strike. Intrinsic value is not the only value affected by the price of the underlying security and the strike price of the option. Time value is affected as well. All things being equal, the closer an option’s strike price is to the price of the stock, the greater the chance the stock will move sufficiently to give the option real or intrinsic value before expiration and, consequently, the greater the time value.
