The market value of Ametek Inc is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of Ametek that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of Ametek's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Ametek'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. Because Ametek's market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect Ametek's underlying business (such as a pandemic or basic market pessimism), market value can vary widely from intrinsic value.

Investors typically determine if Ametek is a good investment by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, Ametek'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.
