Companies in the news:
Dorel Industries Inc. (TSX:DII.B). Down $2.91 or 32 per cent to $6.18. Dorel Industries Inc. saw its share price plunge to a record low Tuesday after it suspended its dividend due to U.S. tariffs on Chinese-made products. The Montreal-based maker of bicycles, children’s car seats and home furnishings said U.S. tariff increases in May to 25 per cent on many of the goods it produces is having a much greater impact on its business than the original 10 per cent tariffs introduced a year ago. The company said a dividend of 15 cents US per share declared on Aug. 2 is not affected and will be paid on Wednesday.
Telus Corp. (TSX:T). Up 27 cents to $47.42. Telus Corp. is dramatically increasing the size of its home and business security operations with a deal to buy ADT Security Services Canada Inc. for roughly $700 million. The Vancouver-based company said Tuesday the purchase is part of its move to provide monitoring for fires, floods, carbon monoxide leaks and break-ins as well as internet-controlled automation features. ADT Canada employs about 1,000 and has approximately 500,000 residential and business customers — about five times the number at Telus SmartHome Security and Secure Business, which was launched last year.
