Industry Terms You Can't Stand

I’ll start…”dry powder”

"When what I'm doing isn't working, that's when I'll take your criticisms." -- Me, some time ago

AMT

Then again, I may have the wrong industry.

82 > 87
Simple math.

cadence

color

bandwidth

synergies

low hanging fruit

touch base

run money

choke the goose

Hope. It is the quintessential human delusion, simultaneously the source of your greatest strength, and greatest weakness.

“P&L” instead of “income statement.”

“Income” when they mean “revenue”

I hate pretty much all the industry terms at this point.

Start the ball rolling
Dry powder
Any juice squeezing references
Get them wet and excited

Can you give me some color on that

I don’t think you can dislike “synergies”. It’s the only word to describe what you’re talking about wrt to M&A stuff. It is often used incorrectly mind you.

“The easy money has been made” - so there is easy money and hard money?
“Get paid while you wait” - as opposed to getting paid while not waiting?

i hate saying “go hard” when there are women present.  if i was a slime ball like STL i’m sure i’d privately get a kick out of saying it to women,. the worst is having to say “they are hard”, but it’s so much quicker than “they have waived contingencies” or “their deposit is non-refundable”.

KISS MY CONVERSE.

deep diving into the financials

"Verdict: TRUE" - Fact Check

You guys pretty much covered everything.

Deep dive

Low hanging fruits

Synergy

Touch Base - wtf does this even mean!!!!!!

Get the ball rolling

BAU - (not sure if its used elsewhere, Business As Usual)

What, no hate for leveraging?

(Exemption granted for “financial leverage,” e.g. using borrowed money or things like options and futures to magnify returns)

You want a quote?  Haven’t I written enough already???

This time is different 

Cautiously optimistic - generally means the guy doesn’t know what the **** he’s on abt

It would make my day if I heard the last one from a women.

“Diversified” has been bugging me lately. If the time horizon is 25+ years in a qualified account and almost zero chance of selling, “return drag” can be substituted. Unless, you’re going to increase risk in times of distress, go sell your lower vol elsewhere. More money 25 years from now is what I desire. I really don’t care how I get there. Now a levered non-qualified account is a different story.

Isn’t it 50,000 feet? LOL.  How high makes it a high level view? Can I say 10,000 feet? What about 100,000 feet? 

Tailwind and headwind

P&L thats definitely old people. one of my first interviews dinged me for that. their loss. my gain. it was a corporate finance gig.

ppl who confuse income revenue are juss not educated enough imo.

I love my cheese. I got to have my cheddar.

This would be a very different discussion in the porn industry.

Some others:

“All sizzle and no steak”

“Circle back”

“Picking up pennies in front of a steamroller”

"When what I'm doing isn't working, that's when I'll take your criticisms." -- Me, some time ago

“We’ve got to make sure this deal looks like an apple and smells like an apple before we pull the trigger.”

Hey Hamilton, have a holly jolly Christmas.

“Take a holistic approach”

So should I take some vitamin C with my financial plan?  Hate it.

Well, that wasn’t very nice.

Few more:

“This is a cherry deal!”

“Let’s just ________ and drive on”

Hey Hamilton, have a holly jolly Christmas.

Actually, in hindsight the conversation would probably pretty similar for the porn industry:

Low hanging fruit

Choking the goose

Going hard

Circle back

Picking up penis in front of a steam roller

Tailwind and headwind

Deep diving

Start the balls rolling

Dry powder

Juice squeezing references

Get them wet and excited

Touch base

ok ok BS wants to talk about porn.

Here’s one that would give me nightmares:  friendly fire.
