Target's Breach a Wake-Up Call; TWC Rejects Charter Communication's Bid

Stocks end up today, being led by the technology sector. While Target's (TGT) breach impacted millions of American's, JP Morgan's (JPM) CEO hopes it serves as a wake-up call to many retailers and banks. He thinks that cyber crimes will become more common if retailers and banks don't work with one another to improve security. Charter Communications (CHTR) offers $61 billion to purchase Time Warner Cable (TWC). Charter prepared its third offer to purchase Time Warner Cable but TWC's board of directors rejected the offer, calling it "a third grossly inadequate proposal".
Wells Fargo (WFC) achieved higher than expected Q4 earnings as its net income rose by 10% to $5.6 billion. The nation's fourth-largest bank benefited from overall improvements in consumers' credit.
