Stock Up After 45M Card Numbers Stolen

I thought it was particularly interesting to read the first paragraph and then the last paragraph of today’s AP article (as seen in the New York Times) reporting of the security breach of TJX Cos, the owner of T.J. Maxx and Marshall’s stores. First paragraph:

Information from at least 45.7 million credit and debit cards was stolen by hackers who accessed TJX’s customer information in a security breach that the discount retailer disclosed more than two months ago.

Last paragraph:

TJX shares rose 51 cents, or 1.9 percent, to $27.01 in morning trading on the New York Stock Exchange.
