Stockhouse Editorial
1 Comment| April 17, 2019

Rising energy shares helped push Canada’s main stock index higher on Wednesday. A 1.4 per-cent increase in the energy sector was led by Canadian Natural Resources Ltd., up 3.2 per-cent, followed by Crescent Point Energy Corp., up 3.1 per-cent and Cenovus Energy Inc. up 3.0 per-cent. Financials rose 0.5 per-cent and industrial shares rose 0.6 per-cent. A major gainer was Hexo Corp., was up 12 per-cent. As the downward pressure from gasoline prices lessened, the annual inflation rate edged up to 1.9 per-cent in March from 1.5 per-cent in February. Health care stocks took a bite out of Wall Street gains, despite positive economic data from China.
The S&P/TSX Composite Index was up 42.04 points to 16,544.24, but the TSX Venture Exchange was up 0.08 of a point to 610.05.
