Big Steal

Big Steal

Informal; a purchase for an exceptionally good (low) price. For example, if a wholesaler wishes to buy a retailer with which it has done business, it may wait until bad news about the retailer results in a steep (but temporary) decline in its share price. The wholesaler then buys the shares in a big steal.
