Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc., an integrated media and merchandising company, creates media and merchandise in the areas of cooking and entertaining, holidays, crafts, home, whole living, weddings, organizing, gardening, and pets. Shares of the company skyrocketed earlier this week after J.C. Penney Co. said it is buying a minority stake in Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia for $38.5 million, the latest move by the department store to attract new customers.

The Martha Stewart shops inside J.C. Penney stores will carry items chosen by Martha Stewart's team. Meanwhile, a joint website will sell those products, along with other items designed or chosen by lifestyles guru Stewart.
