Equifax (NYSE:EFX)  jumped 6% on heavy volume and earlier touched $125.63, a four-month high, as its CEO and CFO meet with some investors in Boston today. The last time it was higher was when it reached $125.69 on Jan. 31.

Some 2.4M shares changed hands, more than twice its three-month average of 931,219.

A press release on the Equifax website says CEO Mark Begor and CFO John Gamble were set to make a presentation at the Baird conference in New York yesterday and then meet with some investors in Boston today; the company did not post any presentation material on its website.

Last September, EFX lost 31% of its market value in the week after it disclosed a massive data breach in which hackers accessed information on more than 145M U.S. consumers. It still hasn't recovered to pre-data-breach levels.

Former GE exec Begor took over as CEO in April, replacing interim chief, Paulino do Rego Barros Jr., who took the post after the data breach.
