Haha, that's ok. Basically the character is a bottom feeder and glutton. In this reference, everyone is upset because their stock in the company has tanked and zoidberg only has an unrefrigerated sandwich that he is hoping has appreciated in value. He is very happy that he has invested in the sandwich now because everyone has worthless stock... unfortunately he then eats the sandwich because, well, he eats most everything. I think of this reference when someone mentions being thrifty or financially responsible.
Huge tangent, i know, but i get a big kick out of the show.
