Stock Jobber

An investor who buys stocks only to resell them at a profit very quickly. Stock jobbing is a short-term investment strategy that operates on the assumption or existence of liquid markets. The practice, when done over and over by a large number of stock jobbers, can lead to a speculative bubble. See also: Flipping.
