Investors also form their own opinion of Block's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Block's true underlying value. Investors use various methods to calculate intrinsic value and buy a stock when its market value falls below its intrinsic value.

Investors typically determine Block value by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, Block's price is the amount at which it trades on the open market and represents the number that a seller and buyer find agreeable to each party.
