Shares of ADT Corp., employer of nearly 900 at ADT Security Services Inc. in the Rochester market, were up nearly $2 Tuesday compared with its $36 opening Monday as a publicly traded company.

The stock (Nasdaq: ADT), was trading in the $37.90 range mid-afternoon Tuesday. It is included in the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index.

ADT became a public company Monday after the completion of its spinoff from Tyco International Ltd. on Friday.
