Companies reporting major news:
Shopify Inc. (TSX:SHOP). E-Commerce. Down $2.76, or 2.14 per cent, to $126.19 on 1.9 million shares. Stock prices fell for a second day, following a prominent short-seller's claim that it's running an overvalued get-rich-quick scheme. The Canadian technology company issued a defence of its business early Thursday but didn't specifically refer to allegations published by Andrew Left of Citron Research.
TransCanada Corp. (TSX:TRP). Oil and gas. Up 66 cents, or 1.08 per cent, to $61.55 on 1.3 million shares. TransCanada has cancelled its $15.7-billion proposed Energy East pipeline, cutting off a potential conduit to bring more western Canadian oil to eastern refineries and overseas export markets. CEO Russ Girling cited non-specific "changed circumstances" for the decision in a brief news release Thursday morning. The Calgary-based company refused to give further explanation. TransCanada said it will record a non-cash charge of about $1 billion in its fourth-quarter financial results, reflecting the reduced carrying value of the projects. It said there would be no costs recovered from third parties.
