The hits just keep coming

According to WSJ today at 5:30 pm ET,  the federal healthcare website is changing web-hosting service providers from Verizon to H-P.

Markets closed before this story was published on the web, but looking at the trading pattern forHewlett-Packard Company (HPQ), there was a huge upside break and the stock closed at 27.36, up $2.27 or 9.05 %. You don’t suppose somebody knew before we did?

CNBC had the story at 5:26 pm ET. Weasel Zippers weblog linked to the WSJ article and had, by far so far, the best and most hilarious comment:

“I know what you’re thinking.  Hewlett-Packard huh? They still exist? Lemme get out my Compaq-Presario and get on Healthcare.gov!”
