Companies reporting major news:
Restaurant Brands International. (TSX:QSR). Unchanged at $77.07. Tim Hortons will seek to shut down an apparent knock-off restaurant in India that uses a name and branding very similar to the coffee-and-doughnut chain. Tim Hottens, located in Yamunanagar, India, is two letters away from the coffee chain in its name. Its logo and branding appear to mimic the Canadian chain’s as well.
Cenovus Energy Inc. (TSX:CVE). Up $1.08 or nine per cent to $13.09. Cenovus shares closed up nine per cent after the oilsands producer said it signed three-year deals with Canada’s major rail companies to move 100,000 barrels per day of heavy crude oil by rail. CEO Alex Pourbaix said after markets closed on Wednesday that the deals will allow the company to go around clogged pipelines that are linked to multi-year high discounts in prices for Canadian heavy oil versus New York-traded benchmark crude.
