Punt

Informal for a speculative investment. A punt is an attempt to make fast profits from an investment regardless of its underlying fundamentals. This means that a punt carries higher risks than most investments, but may see very high returns very quickly. Punts almost always are leveraged highly and are especially common in futures and options markets. They may utilize any of a number of techniques to make investment decisions. See also: Arbitrage.
