Market View

Investors welcomed a surprise bounce in Chinese manufacturing activity globally. Canada and the US’s main indices’ futures saw a gain. Gold prices eased while oil rose. The Canadian dollar was 75.91 cents. U.S. S&P500 was up 0.9% this week and TSX was up 0.7%.


It was a mixed bag this week. Energy slid by 3.4%, followed by healthcare, which slid 1.9%. Industrials rose 1.8%, and materials and technology gained 0.7%, each. Suncor Energy reported third-quarter profit in line with estimates. Net profit, this quarter, fell to $1.04 billion from $1.82 billion last year. Solid quarter for Kinaxis as revenue and adj. EBITDA were up 29%, profit grew 70% to $4.5 million. The most heavily traded shares by volume were Pengrowth Energy Corp, Bombardier Inc, and Encana Corp.
