J. Lo

J. Lo
 n.— «A Wall Street broker recently e-mailed a question to the online financial dictionary Investopedia.com: “What’s a Bo Derek?” He didn’t know that the actress who played Dudley Moore’s vision of the perfect woman in the 1979 movie “10” is now a Wall Street term for “the perfect stock.” And an analyst talking about a “Jennifer Lopez” or “J. Lo” is likely talking about the rounding bottom in a stock’s price chart.» —“In Street lingo, Bo is up, J.Lo is down” Newsday (N.Y.) July 11, 2004. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
