Cash cow

• Is a security, investment or a project which generates or throws off lots of funds due to contacts or contracts. Sometimes, the basis for this asset is an excellent customer, a monopolistic market position, or special advantage afforded by patents, licenses, or other economic properties. This cash flow can be used for many purposes. Typically, this situation constitutes the fundamental franchise of a business.

• A company that pays out all earnings per share to stockholders as dividends. Or, a company or division of a company that generates a steady and significant amount of free cash flow.
