Companies reporting major news:

Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. (TSX:CNQ). Oil and gas. Up 11 cents, or 0.24 per cent, to $46.30 on 1.9 million shares. The company is considering adding a 30,000- to 40,000-barrel-per-day bitumen-only project to its Horizon oilsands mine to take advantage of excess ore production and pipeline capacity. The proposed project could be approved as early as 2019 and would continue a trend in the sector to bolt on brownfield production to avoid the high costs and risks of building new mines from scratch.

Hydro One Ltd. (TSX:H). Utilities. Down 27 cents, or 1.17 per cent, to $22.71 on 444,246 shares. Ontario’s largest electricity distributor says its third-quarter profit was down six per cent from last year as a result of costs associated with the proposed $6.7-billion acquisition of Avista Corp., a U.S. utility company based in Spokane, Wash. Profit attributable to common shareholders was $219 million (37 cents per share), down from $233 million (40 cents per share) last year. Excluding the costs associated with Avista, Hydro One’s adjusted profit was up two per cent at $237 million.
