super sinker

A housing revenue bond issue in which mortgage prepayments are used to retire a specified maturity. Although this particular maturity is far in the future, the bond is likely to be paid off in a relatively short period. Even though an investor in the specified maturity bond is unsure when the security may be retired, the annual return is likely to be relatively high for a short- to intermediate-term holding period.
