Companies reporting major news:
Royal Bank of Canada (TSX:RY). Bank. Down 61 cents, or 0.70 per cent, to $86.02 on two million shares. Royal Bank is hiking mortgage rates amid a sell-off in the bond market and recent federal mortgage rule changes that have made it pricier for banks to get access to cash. The bank said Tuesday it’s raising its special offer for a five-year fixed rate mortgage to 2.94 per cent, an increase of 30 basis points.
TransCanada Corp. (TSX:TRP). Oil and gas. Up $1, or 1.71 per cent, to $59.50 on four million shares. TransCanada says it’s not going ahead with a plan for new lower-priced long-term contracts for Alberta natural gas shippers that want to use its Canadian Mainline system. The company says the “open season” resulted in bids that fell well short of the volumes required to make the plan viable.
