English term or phrase: Sammy J. Sassafrass rom Borg Wiener
I stay focused on trends in growth, margins, and cash flow, not what Sammy J. Sassafrass from Borg Wiener was saying they'd do.

German translation:nonsense name and company
Explanation:
Just a nonsense name and a nonsense company, in the vein of "John Q. Public" or "Otto Normalverbraucher".

You should try and use German names that are similarly nonsensical just to avoid the impression that Sammy and Borg Wiener actually do exist.
