Full Definition

Derogatory term for IPO issuers peddling products that are not yet commercialized, or lack significant demand from potential customers. Often used when the investment community harbors suspicions that an issuer?s growth targets are not supported by past sales uptake. Also a generic expression for companies with wildly optimistic hopes for speculative business models.
