Stag

Informal; an investor who buys a new issue of a security and sells it very quickly in order to make a profit.

stag

a person who subscribes for a new SHARE ISSUE by applying for a large number of shares in the hope that the demand for new shares exceeds the number being issued and that this will lead to an increase in the share price when they are first transacted on the STOCK MARKET. Stags are speculators who buy shares to make a quick profit rather than as long-term investors.
