Jun 11, 2021 (Baystreet.ca via COMTEX) -- It was another weekend to celebrate not only summer, but yet another all-t1me record for equities in Toronto, spirited up mostly by energy and consumer interests.

The TSX Composite index vaulted 88.88 points to end Friday and the week at 20,138.35 another all-time record for the exchange. The gain on the past five sessions was 109 points, or 0.54%.

The Canadian dollar erased 0.43 cents to 82.23 cents U.S.

Among energy stocks, Tourmaline Oil gained $2.47, or 8.1%, to $33.17, while Arc Resources picked up 20 cents, or 2%, to $10.11.

In the industrial sector, Brookfield Business Partners added $2.27, or 4.3%, to $55.07, while Ballard Power Systems increased 51 cents, or 2.4%, to $22.15.

In the consumer discretionary field, Canada Goose Holdings leaped $2.12, or 4.4%, to $50.32, while Dollarama hiked $1.53, or 2.8%, to $55.91.

In resource stocks, Sandstorm Gold docked 23 cents, or 2.1%, to $10.87, while Yamana Gold gave back nine cents, or 1.4%, to $6.22.

Fortuna Silver Mines lost 25 cents, or 3%, to $8.02, while Osisko Mining doffed nine cents, or 2.7%, to $3.31.

The Bank of Canada said on Thursday that inflation could remain higher than projected if supply imbalances and pressures on capacity persist, which might lead it to reduce stimulus more quickly than currently expected.

ON BAYSTREET

The TSX Venture Exchange docked 0.21 points to 979.70. Even so, the index gained 1.7 points on the week, or 0.17%.

All but two of the 12 TSX subgroups stayed firmly in the green Friday, with consumer discretionary stocks hiking 1.3%, energy better by 1.2%, and information technology stocks jumping 0.7%.
