Companies reporting major news:

Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. (TSX:CP). Transportation. Up 83 cents, or 0.39 per cent, to $213.03 on 629,080 shares. Analysts say they’d be glad to see the Calgary-based company join forces with U.S. rival CSX Corp., but a number of hurdles stand in the way of a deal getting done. A Wall Street Journal article over the weekend, citing anonymous sources, said CP had made an overture to CSX last week, but was rebuffed. A combination of the two railways could create a US$62-billion railway capable of moving crude from North Dakota’s prolific oilfields to refineries on the U.S. Eastern Seaboard.
