Companies reporting major news:
Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. (TSX:CNQ). Oil and gas. Down 18 cents, or 0.43 per cent, to $41.41 on 3.1 million shares. The Calgary-based company has pulled its application to resume steaming near the site of an ongoing bitumen spill in eastern Alberta after the Alberta Energy Regulator informed the company that it was going to deny the application. The AER said it would be “inappropriate” for operations to resume while an investigation into the cause of the leak was still ongoing.
Com Dev International Ltd. (TSX:CDV). Space communication equipment and data services. Up nine cents, or 2.31 per cent, at $3.99 on 80,953 shares. Com Dev predicted a rebound in its fiscal second quarter after net income dropped nearly 55 per cent to $1.8 million in the first quarter compared with $4.1 million in the same year-early period, something the company attributed largely to the negative effects of currency fluctuations.
Loblaw Companies Ltd. (TSX:L). Retailer. Up one cent, or 0.02 per cent, to $46.35 on 366,664 shares. The grocery giant will be the first retailer in North America to sell a new type of responsibly-farmed salmon, an offering it hopes will differentiate itself amid intense competition in the grocery business.

The chain of specialty coffee shops produced less revenue in the fourth quarter than a year earlier but shook off the huge loss it recorded at the end of 2012. The $1.8-million net income for the 13 weeks ended Dec. 28 marked the second consecutive quarter of improvements for Second Cup, which had posted a $10.1-million loss in the second quarter.
