Toronto stock market advances on strong earnings

Malcolm Morrison TSX gets lift from financials, U.S. markets rise to highest since March Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Related news The Canadian dollar was off 0.02 of a cent to 99.18 cents US. Earnings reports and positive employment news helped push New York markets higher after they also lost ground on Wednesday. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 130.63 points to 14,831.58, the Nasdaq was ahead 41.49 points to close at a 12 1/2 year high of 3,340.62 and the S&P 500 index was up 14.89 points at 1,597.59. There was some positive employment news a day before the U.S. government releases its employment report for April. The number of Americans seeking unemployment aid fell last week to seasonally adjusted 324,000, the lowest since January 2008. “Everyone is looking to the April jobs numbers,” said Tyler Vernon, chief investment officer at Biltmore Capital in New York. Economists forecast that the economy added 160,000 jobs last month. That’s much better than the 88,000 added in March. “People are more confident that it was an anomaly last month and are looking for some bigger numbers.” General Motors’ shares ran up 98 cents to US$31.16 as the automaker’s net income fell 14% to $865 million or 58 cents a share in the first quarter, weighed down by losses in Europe and weaker earnings in North America. Ex-items, GM earned 67 cents per share, compared with analysts’ forecast of 54 cents. Revenue fell 2.3% to $36.9 billion, still slightly ahead of Wall Street’s expectation of $36.6 billion. After the markets closed Wednesday, Facebook said that its quarterly net income was $219 million, or nine cents per share, up from $205 million, also nine cents per share, in the same period a year ago when the company was still private. Its shares rose $1.54 to $28.97. The gain on the TSX made up about half the loss registered Wednesday after data showing lower levels of expansion in manufacturing sectors set off a new round of concerns about the economies of the U.S. and particularly China, punishing resource stocks particularly. “(China) is still growing at a pace that Europe and North America could only wish for,” said Norman Raschkowan, North American strategist for Mackenzie Investments. “But it is decelerating and that’s important for especially the resource sector. And that’s why Canada has been affected by that more than others.” The consumer staples sector rose 1.17% while Loblaw Companies Ltd. (TSX:L) stock gained $2.01 to $46.76 as it said it is going to include the structural integrity of buildings in audits of suppliers in the wake of a building collapse in Bangladesh that housed one of its suppliers. More than 400 people were killed when the building collapsed last week. One of the factories in the building produced a small number of items for Loblaw’s Joe Fresh clothing line. The financial sector rose 0.92% as Manulife Financial (TSX:MFC) posted net income of $540 million or 28 cents a share, down sharply from $1.22 billion a year ago as insurance sales fell 23% to $619 million. Core earnings for the quarter at Canada’s largest life insurer were up 18% to $619 million, or 32 Canadian cents per share, which matched expectations. Its shares rose 57 cents to $15.33. The consumer discretionary sector was ahead 0.7%. Clothing manufacturer Gildan Activewear (TSX:GIL) reported net earnings of US$72.3 million or 59 cents per share on a diluted basis, exceeding its earlier guidance of 54 to 57 cents per share. Net sales rose more than 8% to US$503 million. It also upgraded its outlook for the year and its shares rose 41 cents to $41.46. Commodity prices were higher after the weak economic data Wednesday pushed prices sharply lower. The metals and mining sector, which is down more than 20% year to date, was ahead 0.86% Thursday while July copper gained two cents to US$3.10 after having tumbled 11 cents Wednesday. HudBay Minerals Inc. (TSX:HBM) rose 18 cents to $7.92 after it said it had a profit of $1.9 million, or a penny per diluted share for the three-month period ended March 31, down from $3.4 million or three cents per diluted share a year earlier. Industrials also advanced with Canadian Pacific Railway (TSX:CP) ahead $3.48 to $126.64. The gold sector was slightly higher while June bullion recovered most of Wednesday’s loss, up $21.40 to US$1,467.60 an ounce. Barrick Gold (TSX:ABX) ran ahead 36 cents to $19.71. Goldcorp (TSX:G) earned $309 million compared to $479 million in the first quarter of 2012. Adjusted net earnings totalled $253 million, or 31 cents per share, compared with $404 million or 50 cents per share a year ago. Revenues came in at $1 billion and Goldcorp shares faded 16 cents to $28.91. The energy component was ahead 0.49 per cent as the June crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange rose $2.96 to US$93.99 a barrel. Canadian Natural Resources (TSX:CNQ) advanced 47 cents to $29.47. Elsewhere, SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. (TSX:SNC) shares dropped $1.94 to $41.51 after posting a first-quarter profit of $53.6 million, down from $66 million a year ago. Revenue totalled $1.9 billion, up from $1.79 billion a year ago. Strong earnings reports helped push the Toronto stock market higher Thursday. The S&P/TSX composite index climbed 58.35 points at 12,379.64, with investors giving a positive reception to earnings from clothing manufacturer Gildan Activewear (TSX:GIL) and Manulife Financial (TSX:MFC) among others.

$18 million for creative spaces to make arts more accessible

first_img$18 million for creative spaces to make arts more accessible The Minister for Arts, Culture and Heritage Carmel Sepuloni has today announced $18 million to support creative spaces.Creative spaces are places in the community where people with mental health needs, disabled people, and those looking for social connection, are welcomed and supported to practice and participate in the arts and in their communities.“These spaces are inclusive and have an important role to play in enhancing the wellbeing of people who are all too often at risk of being excluded from participating in their own communities”, Carmel Sepuloni said.“We should not underestimate the role that the arts can play in health and wellbeing nor the opportunity that these spaces provide to develop and showcase artist talent.”“Funding creative spaces will support new jobs and expand existing roles to help build a more sustainable sector and skilled workforce. It will enable creative spaces to increase the reach and quality of their services and programmes, including into Māori and Pacific communities.“More than 11,000 people a year use creative spaces throughout Aotearoa. With this funding we could see participation rates lift by around 2,000 people per year over the next three years. This new funding acknowledges the value of creative spaces in communities and the benefits to participants’ wellbeing from accessing these services.“The possibility of engaging even more people through this funding means we are reaching those who may not otherwise have access to such important and relevant creative spaces.” Carmel Sepuloni said.Manatū Taonga Ministry for Culture and Heritage has partnered with Arts Access Aotearoa, who have strong knowledge of creative spaces and established relationships, to support the application process and successful recipients over the longer-term.This is the first funding opportunity as part of the $70 million Te Tahua Whakahaumaru Creative Arts Recovery Employment (CARE) Fund announced in May as part of Budget 2020.Applications for further CARE funding to support the wider arts and cultural sector will open from late March 2021. The CARE Fund aims to enhance access and participation in the cultural sector and create employment and skill development opportunities. It is part of the Arts and Culture COVID Recovery Programme led by Manatu Taonga, delivering $374 million over four years to help the cultural sector survive, adapt, and thrive.Further informationApplications for this first round of the Creative Spaces initiative will close at 12 noon on Wednesday 24 March 2021.Creative spaces can receive a maximum grant of $150,000 a year each over three years.There will be two rounds of funding for the Creative Spaces initiative:round one (open until 12 noon on Wednesday 24 March 2021) round two (expected to open in early May) is aimed at creative spaces that need more time or support to apply.More information about creative spaces funding and how to apply is available on the Manatū Taonga website.

UNIDO and Egypt to accelerate inclusive and sustainable industrialization through Programme for Country Partnership

first_imgUNIDO and Egypt to accelerate inclusive and sustainable industrialization through Programme for Country Partnership UNIDOLI Yong, Director General of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), and Mostafa Madbouly, Prime Minister of the Arab Republic of Egypt, today signed the five year, EUR172 million Programme for Country Partnership (PCP) to advance Egypt’s inclusive and sustainable industrialization. Building on UNIDO’s long-standing technical cooperation activities, the PCP will support Egypt’s transformation in line with the country’s national policies and development strategies as well as the UN Partnership Development Framework for Egypt and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).“By combining UNIDO’s advisory and normative services, its technical assistance and its convening function, the PCP will support the efforts of the Government of Egypt in achieving its industrial development goals set forth in the Sustainable Development Strategy: Egypt Vision 2030, the Roadmap for Inclusive and Sustainable Industrial Development 2020-2024, and the MSMEs and Entrepreneurship National Strategy 2020-2025”, said UNIDO Director General Li. “Strong government leadership and a multi-stakeholder partnership are distinctive PCP features, which will integrate and mainstream development to spur industrial growth”.Since December 2018, when Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi and UNIDO Director General LI Yong agreed on the principles of a PCP, the Government of Egypt and UNIDO worked closely to design and develop an integrated service package to leverage additional investment in sectors with high growth potential and the capacity to generate quality jobs.“The Egyptian government emphasizes the participatory efforts to make the most of the PCP as a national platform for integrating all industrial development projects, programmes and initiatives in cooperation with all development partners”, said Prime Minister Madbouly. “We look forward to the successful implementation of the programme in Egypt as an effective approach to solve structural issues that hinder the sector in its path to comprehensive and sustainable development”. Prime Minister Madbouly added: “We also aim at improving the sector’s diversification and innovation capacity and enhance the competitiveness of our products in regional and global markets”.During the 2019 PCP programming phase, which was initiated with the support of the Government of China, UNIDO and key national ministries conducted a country diagnostic, including several consultations with the UN country team, international financial institutions, the donor community, other development partners, and the private sector. The diagnostic showed that manufacturing in Egypt registered some notable achievements in the last decade: in terms of economic contribution, the share of manufacturing has been increasing in three main dimensions, employment, exports and FDI inflows, while in terms of trade competitiveness, Egypt has improved in agriculture, textiles, chemicals and plastics, as evidenced by an increase in the number of revealed comparative advantages (RCAs). However, the country has not yet achieved its full potential to upgrade its manufacturing sector (the share of MVA in total GDP is about 15%) as well as to promote renewable energy sources, the valorization of waste and to enhance its preparedness to reap the benefits of the fourth industrial revolution.Accordingly, the PCP will focus on industrial policy and governance, investment promotion, green industry, smart cities and sustainable industrial parks, value chains, and mainstreaming Industry 4.0 in priority industrial sectors, including chemicals, electronics, food, textiles, leather, furniture, and handicrafts.Today’s ceremony was also attended by Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea, Permanent Representative of Egypt to UNIDO Mohamed Hamdy El-Molla, UN Resident Coordinator in Egypt and numerous representatives of UN agencies, international financial institutions, and the donor community. /UNIDO Public Release.

She would do anything for love, but she won’t take the bus.  Gatineau Police / Facebook Hyundai isn’t calling it a pickup truck, but that’s what the 2022 Santa Cruz Sport Adventure Vehicle is. Because even if the box is only four feet, four inches, it’s still a box, isn’t it? The Korean brand is hoping the vehicle’s dimensions will help position it as the urban/off-road unit they intended it to be. If it floats your boat, fine, but if it pulls it, you still might want to make sure it’s legal. Police in Gatineau, Quebec recently pulled over this out-of-production Toyota Echo car hooked to a pontoon boat that is bigger and likely almost as heavy as the car itself. “No need to tell you that this type of boat requires a vehicle with a greater towing capacity than this small car,” police posted to Facebook. The scene is a good reminder that just because a vehicle will pull an object, doesn’t mean it should. Users discover Tesla “Open Butthole” Easter EggPop quiz!

Apparently Tesla considers its butthole to be the charge port door, because that’s what pops open when you tell the EV’s voice command to “open butthole.” Clever, but also a bit confusing, because that same command used to open the glove compartment.
