TSX makes high, Wall St. mixed
The TSX continued to ride momentum Monday as the Canadian index added 0.27% to make a record close of 20,985. Industrials and tech were up, though surprisingly energy names lagged as the price of WTI held steady though WCS surrendered 0.25% to trade just over $67 per barrel.
Big movers included Denison Mines which soared 12.81%, Greenlane Renewables which jumped nearly 12%, Aritzia which announced another strong quarter and forecast and rallied a further 4.33%. As noted, energy was down with Suncor slipping by 1.44% and Cenovus by 1.25% while Magna lost over 3%.
Gains were a little more muted on Wall Street as the S&P advanced 0.34% and the Nasdaq defied a modest increase in the U.S. 10-year yield (to 1.583%) to close 0.84%. However, the Dow decreased by 0.1%. The Dow components were mixed, though industrials and healthcare took it on the chin. Notable gainers included Facebook by 3.26%, Tesla at 3.21%, Moderna 3.28% and AMD up 3.84%. Losing ground were some travel names, such as Carnival at -2.38% and Disney at -3.01%, as Amgen closed -2.27%. Meanwhile, Bitcoin continued its marathon run by advancing 1.4% to pass $61,000 though gold slipped modestly by 0.23% to stay well below $1,800.
