Though it was a strong day on the market today, two stocks really took a hit. Intuitive Surgical was down today after the company warned that its first-quarter revenue would be down by about 24%. Meanwhile, Toyota stock sold off a bit today, on the news that it was issuing a recall of 6.4 million vehicles worldwide.
