dawn raid

a sudden planned purchase of a large number of a company's shares at the beginning of a day's trading

(Note Up to 15 per cent of a company's shares may be bought in this way, and the purchaser must wait for seven days before purchasing any more shares. Sometimes a dawn raid is the first step towards a takeover of the target company.)
