Companies reporting major news:
Nutrien Ltd. (TSX:NTR). Agriculture. Down $1.76, or 2.91 per cent, to $58.67 on 1.9 million shares. The Canadian fertilizer giant says it plans to keep its six potash mines running for now even as it looks to shift production to its most efficient operations. The company, which formed at the start of the year out of the merger of Potash Corp. and Agrium Inc., says it will however look at the end of the year whether it makes sense to close any of its smaller, more costly mines.
WestJet Airlines Ltd. (TSX:WJA). Airline. Down 31 cents, or 1.29 per cent, to $23.73 on 551,586 shares. Nearly a week after launching ticket sales for its ultra-low-cost carrier Swoop, Calgary-based WestJet says it hasn’t lost business at its main airline, suggesting it has found a new market of infrequent flyers. WestJet also posted fourth-quarter earnings of $48.5 million (42 cents per diluted share), down from a profit of $55.2 million (47 cents per diluted share) a year earlier, as costs rose, particularly for fuel. Fourth-quarter revenue totalled nearly $1.12 billion, up from nearly $1.02 billion.
