How much is a share worth?

A share’s worth will vary depending on whether you are looking at its fair value or its market value. The fair value is the intrinsic value of a stock based on the company’s fundamentals, while the market value is the amount that individuals are currently willing to pay for the stock.

The fair value of a stock is often much lower than the market value as the latter is heavily influenced by demand, which does not always reflect a share’s fundamentals. If the demand for a share goes up while the supply remains constant, then the share price will rise as people are willing to pay more.
