Stocks rebound at opening

Wall Street rebounded at opening today on speculation that debt-troubled Greece will get some help from its neighbors and some strong reports from U.S. economic stalwarts McDonald's and Coke.

In the first 20 minutes of trading, the Dow is up 1.2 percent.

The broader S&P 500 is up 1.1 percent and the tech-heavy Nasdaq is up 1 percent.

In other news this morning, Toyota finally pulled the trigger on its global Prius recall, saying it wold call back some 400,000 of the high-profile hybrids to fix driver concerns about squishy-feeling brakes.
