Canadian stocks are lightly higher Tuesday mid-trading, with the S&P/TSX Composite Index inching 41.32 points higher. In the session, gains led by Canada's tech and producer manufacturing were offset by notable losses in process industries and tech services. Shares of Anaergia Inc. shares were higher after the company said it expects to continue its growth momentum and improve performance in the remaining half of the year.
At midday, Canada's S&P/TSX Composite Index was 0.23% higher at 20226.40. The blue-chip S&P/TSX 60 rose by 0.34%, to 1223.30.
Anaergia Inc. shares jumped nearly 25%, to 10.16 Canadian dollars (US$7.87), after it said it has benefited from capital sales projects currently under development in Europe--specifically in Italy--the Middle East and in Africa, supporting a 57% rise in revenue to C$42.2 million.
