SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Shares of Teradata Corp. /quotes/comstock/13*!tdc/quotes/nls/tdc (TDC 38.03, +3.56, +10.33%) jumped more than 10% to $38.09 in early trades Monday after an analyst speculated that the data storage company could be a takeover candidate. The speculation came after IBM /quotes/comstock/13*!ibm/quotes/nls/ibm (IBM 131.32, +1.13, +0.87%) announced plans to buy peer Netezza /quotes/comstock/13*!nz/quotes/nls/nz (NZ 27.65, +3.05, +12.40%) for $1.7 billion. "We consider Teradata a logical potential target as well; a bigger vendor with more of a services component but also one with successful data warehouse appliance offerings," wrote Nathan Schneiderman of Roth Capital Partners.
