MULLET

In Business
A person who consistently makes bad investments. A term germane to leveraged buy-outs (“LBO’s”) where there are several tranches of the capital structure to invest in – senior debt, subordinated debt, preferred equity, and common equity. The “mullet” is the investor who invests in that tranche which offers the lowest return for the risk taken, hence the term “mullet money”.  Also see AIG.

On the Court
A player who consistently tries to do what he is incapable of, i.e. the point guard who tries to post-up and the center who tries to dribble through a full-court press.

In the Real World
A dumb fish. A mullet sits at the bottom of the ocean with its mouth open. If fish swim into its mouth then it eats. If not, then it starves to death.
