Business / Taxes / Exercise: When you act on a buying or selling opportunity that you have been granted under the terms of a contract, you are said to exercise a right. Contracts may include the right to exchange stock options for stock, buy stock at a specific price, or buy or sell the security or product underlying an option at a specific exercise price. For example, if you buy a call option giving you the right to buy stock at $50 a share, and the market price jumps to $60 a share, you'd likely exercise your option to buy at the lower price.
