Canada manufacturing PMI posts first decline in 6 months

TORONTO, Aug 1 (Reuters) – Canadian manufacturing growth
slowed sharply in July, with output and new order gains well
down from June, as deteriorating global economic conditions
cooled factory activity in Canada.

The RBC Canadian Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index,
released on Wednesday, slipped to 53.05 in July from 54.85 a
month earlier. It was the index’s first decline in six months
and weakest reading since hitting 52.43 in March.

TSX flat as fears on Europe offset Rogers earnings

TORONTO, July 24 (Reuters) – Canada’s main stock index was
little changed on Tuesday as solid earnings from telecoms leader
Rogers Communications Inc and upbeat China data were
offset by euro zone fears, including a potential credit ratings
downgrade for Germany.

Despite a dip by most of Canada’s 10 main sectors, the index
hovered near break even. The safe-haven telecommunications
sub-index led gains, rising 1.6 percent after earnings from
Rogers Communications, Canada’s largest mobile phone company,
beat expectations.
