Definition of Hiccup:

  1. One of the biggest challenges for investors is determining what is merely a hiccup and what is a harbinger of things to come. If a company misses sales estimates one quarter, this may be an isolated event, or it may be the first of several misses highlighting a core problem in the business model.

  2. A brief interruption in a trend.

  3. Hiccup is a slang term for a short-term disruption within a longer-term plan, goal, or trend.
