Midday movers: Tesla, Home Depot & More

Market Insider | What's Shaking | Stocks to Watch

Take a look at some of Tuesday's midday movers:

Tesla Motors - Shares of the electric-car maker rose after CEO Elon Musk said the company was taking steps as a result of battery-related blazes in his company's Model S, including higher ground clearance to make them less likely to hit road debris.

Home Depot - The home-improvement retailer led gains on the Dow Jones Industrial Average after reporting third-quarter results that topped profit and sales estimates. It also raised its fiscal-year forecast.

Best Buy - The electronic retailer's shares dropped sharply after it warned that its strategy of keeping pace with discounts offered by competitors during the holidays would curb fourth-quarter profits.

Campbell Soup - The seller of soup and V8 beverage took a hit after the company reported results short of expectations.

Tyson Foods -- Shares rallied a day after the meat processor reported a 28 percent rise in quarterly profit.
