Why HD Supply (HDS) Is Up Today

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of HD Supply Holdings  (HDS) rocketed up 8.63% to $25.06 in trading Tuesday. The surge comes after the industrial distributor filed its Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Form 8-K.

The company lost $66 million, or 34 cents per share, compared to $713 million, or $5.46 per share, in the fourth quarter of its 2012 fiscal year.
