Warrant's Intrinsic Value calculation and Share Price appreciation with a warrant
Assume you can buy a warrant for $5 that gives you the option to buy one share of common stock at $14 per share. The stock is currently selling at $16 per share.
a. What is the intrinsic value of the warrant?
b. What is the speculative premium on the warrant?
c. If the stock rises to $24 per share and the warrant sells at its theoretical value without a premium, what will be the percentage increase in the stock price and the warrant price if you bought the stock and the warrant at the prices stated above? Explain this relationship.
