Q: What are flippers? What do they do? Are they legal? And why are there so many people complaining about them? Thanks.

—Richard Wong

A: First off, a definition: For our purposes, a “flipper” is a short-term investor or daytrader who buys pre–IPO (initial public offering) shares, swiftly spinning them out into public markets for a quick profit. According to an online reference guide, flippers may hold a stock for only 24 to 48 hours. The other “flipper” term you may run across applies to those who buy and fix up houses to “flip” at a profit.

As far as people complaining about either kind of flipper is concerned, the other side of the equation is that these flippers provide much-needed liquidity in these new issues, and in the housing market as well.
