Athabasca Oil Corp. (TSX:ATH). Oil and gas. Down 69 cents, or 9.91 per cent, to $6.27 on 14.1 million shares.

Companies reporting major news:
BlackBerry Ltd. (TSX:BB). Wireless communications. Up 20 cents, or 2.37 per cent, to $8.64 on 1.39 million shares. Long battered by complaints that it lacks the latest and greatest apps to attract consumers and keep them entertained, BlackBerry hopes the customers it's now focusing on just don't care about the dreaded "app gap." When BlackBerry provided a dire update on its business last month, the floundering company signalled it was turning away from mainstream consumers to refocus its efforts on two markets: enterprise customers and so-called "prosumers."
Saputo Inc. (TSX:SAP). Up 45 cents, or 0.88 per cent, to $51.61 on 159,363 shares. The Canadian cheese giant finds itself in a three-way bidding war for an Australian dairy processor after a leading local co-operative set the new standard with an all-cash bid that's seven per cent higher than Saputo's offer. The Montreal-based company says it is evaluating options but industry analysts believe Saputo will boost its C$450 million bid, including debt.
