Companies reporting major news:

Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX). Miner. Down 22 cents, or 1.14 per cent, to $19.13 on 3.02 million shares. It posted a steep drop in its first-quarter adjusted net earnings to US$238 million, or 20 cents per share, from US$923 million, or 92 cents per share a year ago due to a decrease in metal prices and lower gold sales volumes. Results beat analyst estimates by a penny. Revenues were US$2.6 billion compared with $3.4 billion for the comparable year-earlier period. Founder Peter Munk bid an emotional farewell at the company's annual meeting of shareholders.

Loblaw Cos. Ltd. (TSX:L). Grocery chain. Up $1.85, or 4.04 per cent, to $47.65 on 2.04 million shares. The grocer said adjusted net earnings went up by 3.7 per cent to $139 million or 49 cents a share in the first quarter, beating estimates of 46 cents.

Sherritt International Corp. (TSX:S). Miner. Down two cents, or 0.43 per cent, to $4.64 on 947,225 shares. The company, which is embroiled in a fight with a group of dissident shareholders, said it lost $48.2 million in its latest quarter. Results were affected by higher financing costs related to foreign exchange losses as a result of a lower Canadian dollar and costs related to the start of commercial production at its Ambatovy project in Madagascar.
