landslide effect

Italian translation: effetto valanga

English term or phrase: landslide effect
"Especially if 1% of the 80 million investors are willing to buy, resulting in a**** landslide effect***, having a 50-folds to the share price will be assured."

I've tried to look for this term on dictionaries, and all I can find are negative connotations related to the environment, and just one positive connotation in politics.
In this field, it seems to be positive as well, but how to translate it?

Any suggestions?
