strip-and-flip
 v. phr.— «Typically, in a buyout situation like this, the new owners follow some variation on what has come to be called the strip-and-flip script. They proceed to gin up profits at their new holding by any means necessary, then take their plaything public on the stock exchange and make a killing selling shares of their new company’s stock.» —“Does Greed Fuel Stupidity in Corporate America?” by Sam Pizzigati AlterNet July 10, 2008.
