Lynch used it because of the baseball reference where a "double" is a 2-bagger. I'd personally use it as a multiple of the original price. So a 10 bagger goes from $10 to $100, rather than always having to subtract the original price. I don't think there is a "1 bagger" and a 0 bagger means you're out.

Then again I don't think I use the term "bagger" except for a 10 bagger, let alone put in the decimal points.
