TSX Up with Oil Prices

Manulife, Rogers in Vogue

Canada's main stock index rose on Thursday, on track to snap a three-day losing streak, as a slew of upbeat earnings, including from insurer Manulife and telecom operator Rogers Communications, lifted investor sentiment, while an uptick in oil prices also pushed energy shares higher.

The TSX Composite jumped 178.1 points to open Thursday at 19,708.31.

The Canadian dollar gained 0.15 cents at 72.66 cents U.S.

The much-broader index sank 6.62 points to 4,376.16, threatening an eight-session win streak.

The NASDAQ retreated 5.97 points to 13,644.44.

Disney rose 4% after reporting better-than-expected profit and expanding its cost-cutting plan, while Arm dipped 6% following its first quarterly report as a public company.

Meanwhile, MGM Resorts rose 3% on strong results and a new share buyback program.
