Canada's main stock index opened slightly up on Tuesday, supported by a rise in material and healthcare stocks, while investors assessed stronger-than-expected producer prices data from the U.S. that dampened hopes of interest rate cuts this year.

The TSX Composite Index eked up 4.21 points to 22,263.38.

The Canadian dollar took on 0.15 cents at 73.32 cents U.S.

The four laggards were weighed most by energy, sagging 0.6%, information technology, flagging 0.5%, and utilities, giving up 0.2%>


Stocks traded higher on Tuesday as traders looked for clarity on future Federal Reserve policy moves after April’s producer price index rose more than expected.
