TSX falls in broad-based decline

first_img TSX gets lift from financials, U.S. markets rise to highest since March Canadian and U.S. stocks racked up broad-based losses Thursday amid mounting evidence that U.S. hiring has slowed down. The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was down 75.12 points to 15,078.00 in a decline that saw nearly all sectors finish in the red. Keywords Marketwatch Related news David Hodges Toronto stock market dips on weakness in the energy and financials sectorscenter_img Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Share this article and your comments with peers on social media S&P/TSX composite hits highest close since March on strength of financials sector In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average dropped 158.13 points to 21,320.04, the S&P 500 index shed 22.79 points to 2,409.75 and the Nasdaq composite index fell 61.40 points to 6,089.46. The losses came as payroll processor ADP reported that private U.S. businesses added 158,000 jobs last month, which was fewer than analysts expected. “What we’re seeing is this general erosion in sentiment,” said Andrew Pyle, a senior wealth adviser at Scotia Wealth Management. “Some of that has to do with the weaker-than-expected payroll numbers we saw in the States this morning.” Going into the summer, Pyle added, the fundamentals that have been behind the impressive movements of U.S. stock markets are now starting to fade. “Without proof that we’re going to see an acceleration in U.S. growth and global growth, investors are having a hard time justifying current levels of the market. And that’s why we’re seeing this general pullback.” In currencies, the Canadian dollar was trading at an average price of US77.24¢, up 0.21 of a U.S. cent. Pyle pegged the loonie’s recent rally to a switch in market sentiment with respect to the Bank of Canada, which next Wednesday will make its next interest rate announcement. There have been growing expectations of a rate hike, which would be the first such increase in nearly seven years. “That’s what’s really underneath the strength of the Canadian dollar now,” he said. “I think at this point it’s probably getting close to its top.” Gold, which tends to do well when the U.S. dollar is under pressure, was also up. The August gold contract advanced $1.60 to US$1,223.30 an ounce. On the corporate front, Air Canada shares were at their highest in more than 10 years on Thursday after the country’s largest airline said analyst forecasts had significantly underestimated one of its earnings benchmarks. Shares in the Montreal-based airline advanced $1.86, or 10.73%, to close at $19.20. The stock surged after Air Canada said its EBITDAR (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, impairment and aircraft rent) will be better than the $475 million average forecast by analysts for the three months ended June 30. Elsewhere in commodities, the August crude contract was up US39¢ to US$45.52 per barrel while the August natural gas contract added US5¢ to US$2.89 per mmBTU. The September copper contract was ahead US2¢ at US$2.66 a pound.last_img read more

first_img COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS A woman in Queens, New York found her car was towed out of the spot she’d been parking it in for nearly 10 years after a ‘No Standing Anytime’ sign was installed overnight.According to CBS New York, it was legal for Nicole Laveglia to park her vehicle on the street when she got home at 8:30 pm this past week.But when she woke up, her car was gone, and a brand-new sign declaring “No Standing Anytime” was installed on the block instead.

Europe takes big lead early in EurAsia Cup

first_imgKUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – Europe grabbed a good lead over Asia in the EurAsia Cup, 4 ½ to 1 ½, after the opening day at Glenmarie Golf & Country Club on Friday. Bernd Wiesberger and Ian Poulter notched five birdies and an eagle to beat Anirban Lahiri and Wang Jeung-hun, 4 and 3 in the first fourballs match, then Kristoffer Broberg and Ross Fischer doubled that advantage. The 6-and-4 victory over Kim Kyung-tae and Prayad Marksaeng looked to put Europe in cruise control, but the Asians came back through Byeong Hun-an and Thongchai Jaidee, who upstaged Danny Willett and Matthew Fitzpatrick, 3 and 1. Europe, however, regained a two-point advantage thanks to a 2-and-1 success through Shane Lowry and Andy Sullivan. Full scoring from the EurAsia Cup Despite the local cheers for Danny Chia and Nicholas Fung, who took turns trading birdies on the back nine to earn Asia half a point, Lee Westwood and Chris Wood made sure Europe ended the day on a high by beating Kiradech Aphibarnrat and SSP Chawrasia, 2 and 1. ”We know we are in the driving seat after today, but we need to keep up this performance,” Sullivan said. ”We all know what happened the last time, and what the Asian team are capable off.” At the inaugural event in 2014, Asia trailed Europe 5-0 on the opening day, before storming back to force a 10-10 draw and share the trophy. Thai stalwart Jaidee, who captained the team in that tournament, was confident a good showing on Saturday will set the tone for another remarkable comeback. ”Tomorrow will be very important,” Thongchai said. ”If we get some points and score some in the singles, it will make for a great spectacle. Our team (is) quite well set up for Asia to make a comeback.”last_img read more

Technology Takes Center Stage at Kalispell’s Newest Elementary School

first_img Email Education is changing and Rankin Elementary, Kalispell’s newest elementary school, is perhaps one of the best places to see that transition first hand. On March 8, U.S. Sen. Steve Daines, R-Montana, visited Rankin to see some of the technology that was built into the school that serves students from kindergarten through fifth grade.Rankin opened in August 2018 and was the first new elementary school to be built in Kalispell in 30 years.Principal Merisa Murray said that technology was a huge consideration when designing and building the school. All classrooms have smart boards that connect to a computer. There are at least four 3D printers in the school and each of the 415 students gets to make at least one item every year. Last year, some students made Christmas ornaments. Some classrooms also have speaker systems that amplify the teacher’s voice. Superintendent Mark Flatau said the system helps students clearly hear their instructor while also saving the teacher’s voice.All of the technology at Rankin, and other schools in Kalispell, is funded with a local technology levy. Murray said by the time students leave elementary school they will have had firsthand experience with several different types of technology, including computers, iPads and more. Every grade has at least one technology class each week and some students are learning how to code. Kindergarteners also learn basic skills like how to use a mouse.“There are more devices in kids’ hands and that’s going to help them learn,” she said.Daines, a chemical engineer, said he was glad to see the students were already proficient with technology and that it’s important for them to embrace technology.“This is preparing these kids for the 21st century,” he said. “We need to make sure that our students can compete in the global economy.” Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup.

U.S. Transportation Chief Pushes Obama Bill, Defends Atlanta Streetcar Investment

first_img ‘It’s Fractured’: Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan On Healing Republican Party Related Stories Legal Advocate Discusses Medical Abuse At Shut Down Georgia ICE Facility For Whom The Bell Rings “I don’t have to tell you how bad traffic is on a given day and just imagine if the federal government’s unable to help you,” said Foxx. “You’re going to have less money to not only fix and repair your roads and bridges, but you’re going to have less money to do expansion projects.” The country’s Highway Trust Fund is backed by a tax on gasoline, but revenues have been in decline for years. At current spending levels, the fund is scheduled to run dry in August.In recent years, Congress has addressed similar shortfalls with short-term cash infusions. President Obama is proposing a four-year plan partly funded by closing corporate loopholes, which Republicans have generally opposed.“Twenty seven times over the past time five years Congress has chosen to put a band aid on this county’s transportation system, funding it in fits and starts,” said Foxx. “Thank goodness for communities like Atlanta that have had the vision and fortitude to continue planning and designing and engineering to get projects in a position to get done even despite the uncertainty in Washington.”Foxx says 700,000 jobs nationally and thousands here in Georgia will be in jeopardy if Congress doesn’t act on Obama’s proposal.Meanwhile, Foxx defended the $47 million federal investment in the Atlanta Streetcar, which is at least 10 months behind schedule and millions over-budget. He said the project will pay off.“You have to look at the response of the development community to the Streetcar. You’re seeing $300 million of investment even before it gets built,” said Foxx.City officials have said the Streetcar will finally launch this summer. But after Foxx spoke, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed couldn’t confirm that, saying only it would be running by Dec. 31 – the lone date, he said, he can stand by. center_img U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx spoke in Atlanta Wednesday about the need for Congress to pass a broad transportation bill.1:49Foxx touted the Atlanta Streetcar and the Beltline, both recipients of federal funding. He spoke along the Beltline in east Atlanta and said future projects are at risk. Share 1:49 | Play story Add to My ListIn My List last_img read more
