Companies reporting major news:

Goldcorp (TSX:G). Miner. Down 47 cents, or 1.70 per cent, to $27.14 on 2.3 million shares. The company has extended the deadline for its hostile takeover bid for Osisko Mining, a day after Osisko announced a friendly deal involving Yamana Gold, and two of Canada's largest pension funds. The bid was set to expire Friday, but has now been pushed until 5 p.m. ET on April 15.

Great-West Lifeco Inc. (TSX:GWO). Insurance. Up 17 cents, or 0.56 per cent, to $30.56 on 461,052 shares. The company has signed a deal to acquire the J.P. Morgan Retirement Plan Services. Financial terms of the deal for the record keeping business were not disclosed.

Hudson's Bay Co. (TSX:HBC). Retail. Down 96 cents, or 5.10 per cent, to $17.86 on 1.8 million shares. The company is spending more on its online shopping capabilities to grow its business, which now includes Saks Fifth Avenue, chief executive Richard Baker says. His comments came after the Toronto-based retailer reported a profit of $29.1 million in its latest quarter as its acquisition of U.S. luxury retailer Saks helped increase sales by nearly 75 per cent.

Richelieu Hardware Ltd. (TSX:RCH). Manufacturing. Up $1.35, or 2.73 per cent, to $50.82 on 17,924 shares. The Quebec-based manufacturing and distribution company says it had $8.8 million of net earnings in the three months ended Feb. 28, up 8.2 per cent from a year earlier. The Montreal-based company makes hinges, fasteners and other hardware for the manufacturing, home renovation and retail sectors as well as other products.

Rogers Communications Inc. (TSX:RCI.B). Communication services. The company is betting on consumers watching more video on their tablets and smartphones — especially NHL hockey fans — with its recent $3.3-billion purchase of wireless spectrum. Analysts say Rogers' acquisition in the January auction will be needed to allow hockey fans to stream NHL games on their mobile devices.

WestJet Airlines Ltd. (TSX:WJA). Airline. Up 18 cents, or 0.72 per cent, to $25.15 on 483,336 shares. The Calgary-based company flew more passengers last month than in March 2013 but the increase didn't absorb all the fleet capacity the airline has added over the past year, mainly from the launch of its new Encore regional service. The company said it had an 84 per cent load factor in March, a decline of 2.1 percentage points from the same month last year.
