Ten bagger is an investment term coined by Peter Lynch in his book One Up On Wall Street. This refers to an investment which is worth ten times its original purchase price, and was adapted from baseball where "bag" is a casual term for "base", and extra-base hits like doubles, triples, and home runs are colloquially called two-, three-, or four-baggers.
