    Re: APT share plan fuels 4G feeding frenzy

    The term "feeding frenzy" comes from the behavior of sharks when a number of sharks compete aggressively for available prey. In this article it used as a metaphor for the competition to buy shares.

    Re: APT share plan fuels 4G feeding frenzy

    It's a feeding frenzy, as with sharks on a school of fish. In this case, the announced plan to sell initial shares (IPO) at NT$17.44 per share to raise NT$14.4 billion has led to a feeding frenzy (strong interest from various parties) of investors and companies interested in a stake in the company (Asia Pacific Telecom).
