Companies reporting major news:
Suncor Energy Inc. (TSX:SU). Oil and gas. Up $1.28, or 3.41 per cent, to $38.81 on 4.6 million shares. Suncor Energy threw cold water on speculation that its hostile takeover offer for Canadian Oil Sands will be sweetened. CEO Steve Williams says the $4.3-billion bid should be good enough for shareholders given the gloomy outlook for oil prices, operational woes at the Syncrude oilsands mine, the absence of a competing offer and Suncor’s better resilience to commodity swings than its target.
