Pink Sheets

Definition:

Where the rock star sleeps. Raise your glass to ‘em, baby.

The “pink sheets,” however, are the arena in which shares of delisted or very small, thinly-traded companies trade. These shares tend to be highly illiquid and have (maybe) a single dealer. They are the financial securities equivalent of the alien outpost from Men In Black II.
