tarp
 v.Note: From TARP, the Troubled Assets Relief Program, intended to aid American financial institutions in jeopardy. «Bank of America has been “tarped” (a new verb), like AIG, but not as much. Only $45 billion was handed over from the government. Still, this tarping helped propel the stock from $3 to an $11 rally, fueled by a combination of traders and optimistic investors.» —“Trolling Along The Bottom (AA, AIG, BAC, C, GM)” by Greg Sushinsky Investopedia Apr. 15, 2009.
