Dead Cat Bounce
Posted on Feb 18th, 2013 in t-shirt
I have a new shirt up on CafePress and Spreadshirt (see the links at the bottom of this post). I’ve been wanting to make this one for a long time. A dead cat bounce is a term used in finance for a small (to rip a few sentances from wikipedia…), brief recovery in the price of a declining stock. It’s derived from the idea that “even a dead cat will bounce if it falls from a great height.” It’s the strangest Wall Street term I’ve heard, and always brings to mind a pretty gruesome image when I hear it.
