Toyota Slips on Recall, Home Depot and Amazon Add Jobs for Spring

Stocks rise in midday trading on Wednesday. In top headlines, shares of Toyota are slipping after the automaker reported an extensive global recall of its Prius hybrid. Also, shares of Home Depot are slightly rising after the home improvement retailer said it's planning to hire just as many part-time workers this spring as it did last year, while Amazon announces it's adding jobs at fulfillment centers across the country. Lastly, Big Lots announces it's the official thrift outlet for Hostess snack products -- so fans of Twinkies can buy their favorite snack at a discount once again.
