Stock Jobbing

Stock Jobbing

The buying and selling of securities with the intent of generating quick profits. While most investors seek value through long-term investments, stock jobbing takes on a more speculative short-term tone.

The term stock jobbing is largely used in reference to the South Sea Bubble - an 18th-century stock that literally wiped out the savings of many British citizens.
