Target Stock and the Data Breach ($TGT)

At some point, $TGT will be a buy. Target is going through the stolen data stuff now, but it seems to me that an investor panic in a stock can create a tremendous value in shares of a popular retailer.

Remember the Toyota brakes issue and the sell off in $TOY?  Ya, great buying opportunity.

Target said an investigation found that hackers stole the personal information of at least 70 million customers, including names, mailing addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses. Previously, the No. 3 U.S. retailer said the hackers stole data from 40 million credit and debit cards.
