TSX Today: What to Watch for in Stocks on Monday, May 9

0 0

Canadian equities market traded on a weak note on Friday, as investors continued to digest the Federal Reserve’s latest interest rate decision. The S&P/TSX Composite Index ended the session with a 63-point, or 0.3%, decline at 20,633, with steep declines in sectors like healthcare, technology, and financials. While rising crude oil prices helped energy stocks climb, weakening metals prices drove a selloff in metals mining shares.

With this, the main TSX index has consistently been sliding down for the last the six weeks, losing nearly 6.2% of its value during this period.

Top TSX movers and active stock

The shares of Martinrea International (TSX:MRE) popped by 14.6% on May 6 to $8.71 per share, making it the top gainer TSX stock for the day. This massive rally in Martinrea stock came a day after the company released its upbeat Q1 results. In the March quarter, the Vaughan-based automotive supplier’s total revenue rose by 15.8% from a year ago to $1.16 billion, exceeding analysts’ expectations of $997 million. Improving volume and mix helped Martinrea International post a strong $0.31 per share in adjusted earnings, crushing Street’s estimates of $0.11 per share.

Trisura Group and Kinaxis were also among the top-performing TSX stocks on Friday, as they inched up by more than 7% each.

In contrast, Shopify, Aritzia, IGM Financial, Dye & Durham, and Hut 8 Mining lost more than 6% each, making them the worst-performing TSX Composite components for the day.

Based on their daily trade volume, Enbridge, Manulife Financial, Cenovus Energy, and Bombardier were the four most active stocks on the exchange.
