high-flier

1. A person who has the potential for or who has achieved great success. Tim was such a high-flier in college that it's no surprise he's achieved such great success in his career.
2. A stock whose price rises much more quickly or dramatically compared to the market average due to high demand among investors. The media company's expansion has led it to be an expensive high-flier on the market, though there are doubts that it can sustain such dizzyingly high valuations.
