barbecue risk
 n.— «Late in 2005, MLC Investments coined a phrase destined to pass into the investment vernacular: “barbecue risk.” It neatly sums up the pressure we feel when we hear that someone else’s investments have done better than ours.» —“Get set, stay set” Sydney Morning Herald (Australia) Jan. 13, 2006.
