Toyota Motor Corp (NYSE:TM) stock is hitting record highs today, up 2.2% to trade at $186.60 at last check. This positive price action comes after the company announced the completion of a 25.8 million share buyback. The Japan-based automobile name has also been in the spotlight lately due to its electric vehicle (EV) efforts. 

Today's pop has TM breaking past pressure at the $185 level, which provided a ceiling for the stock's most recent breakouts and is home to its former August 3 record high of $185.99. Plus, long-term support at the 140-day moving average caught the security's August pullback to the $164 region. Year-over-year, the equity is up 40.3%.
