understanding financial jargon
Intangible Assets are those assets owned by a company which do not have physical form, such as intellectual copyright, or goodwill.
For investment purposes intangible assets can be quite difficult to value, unlike tangible assets such as plant and machinery. Some of the most vigorous investment valuation methods exclude intangible assets altogether.
However this would mean that a company such as Pepsi, whose business model is largely related to their branding, an intangible asset, would be valued at very much less than market value, even though that branding is what has given Pepsi it's market penetration and growth over it's lifetime.
