How can I extract only the diagonal elements of a matrix product without computing the whole product matrix?

I have nxk matrix (A) and a kxk (B) matrix where n>>k. I want the diagonal terms of A*B*A' in a n-vector. It would be wasteful to compute the whole A*B*A' and then extract the diagonal vector. What is the easy and efficient way to do this?

You could use
sum((a * b) .* a, 2)
A check:
a = rand(1000, 10);
b = rand(10);
max(abs(diag(a*b*a.') - sum((a*b).*a,2)))
And yes, it's quicker:
f1 = @() diag(a * b * a.');
f2 = @() sum((a*b).*a, 2);
ans = 0.0104
ans = 1.2795e-04
[Edit: my example originally had n < k, which only gave a modest speedup. For n >> k, as required, the speedup is much greater, as expected.]
