Stag

Informal; an investor who buys a new issue of a security and sells it very quickly in order to make a profit. A stag makes the bet that the price of a new issue will rapidly rise, at least for the first few hours or days. His/her investment philosophy is the exact opposite of a buy and hold strategy.

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.

stag
