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