Cash Cow

April 11, 2010

This is the definition directly from Miriam Webster dictionary.  I hope they don’t mind me using their definition, especially since I give them full credit.  This is not a commonly used phrase but you may hear it from time to time.  I explain this phrase because I used it last Friday (today is Sunday).

1 : a consistently profitable business, property, or product whose profits are used to finance a company’s investments in other areas
2 : one regarded or exploited as a reliable source of money <a singer deemed a cash cow for the record label>
