SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Canadian equities edged higher Tuesday following better-than-expected data on U.S. retail sales and economic growth in Germany, with gains led by the financial and energy sectors. Toronto's S&P/TSX Composite Index rose 28 points, or 0.2%, at 11,867. Among the bigger gainers, the S&P/TSX Capped Financial index /zigman2/quotes/210598468/delayed XX:TORGC189 +0.88% rose 0.4% and the S&P/TSX Capped Energy index /zigman2/quotes/210598495/delayed XX:TORGC187 +3.29% added 0.6%. Shares of Encana Corp. tacked on 2.1% while Manulife Financial Corp. /zigman2/quotes/208833709/delayed CA:MFC +2.29% added 2%. Shares of Aecon Group Inc. /zigman2/quotes/204582927/delayed CA:ARE +1.45% were a standout, falling 6% after the company said adjusted earnings were flat in the second quarter and revenue fell 13%. Canada's loonie was little changed against its U.S. counterpart, with one U.S. dollar purchasing 99.21 Canadian cents, from 99.23 Canadian cents on Monday.
