Bo Derek

What it is:

A "Bo Derek" is a so-called perfect investment. The term comes from the 1979 movie "10," starring the actress Bo Derek, who depicted "the perfect woman."

How it works (Example):

The term is less common now than it was in the 10 years after the movie came out, but the search for Bo Derek investments continues. As with women, defining the attributes that create the perfect investment is a matter of personal tastes and objectives.

Why it Matters:

Ironically, in the movie the main character (George Webber, played by the actor Dudley Moore) got the "perfect" woman and realized she wasn't as attractive as she seemed.
