When a large number of securities or shares are bought by a company as soon as the market opens, the practice is referred to as dawn raid. Such activity is undertaken usually by a potential acquiring company in a takeover effort.

The strategy of the dawn raid is to take the target by surprise by buying its shares suddenly. Though it involves lesser cost, it is extremely difficult to meet the target of the dawn raid in practice.
