CANADA STOCKS-TSX slips as financials weigh, Nexgen jumps

TORONTO, June 30 (Reuters) – Canada’s main stock index
slipped in early trade on Friday, with heavyweight financial
shares pushing the index lower, more than offsetting a jump in
energy company Nexgen Energy which announced a
financing deal.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index
was down 23.74 points, or 0.16 percent, at 15,189.68
shortly after the open. It is on track for a 1 percent retreat
in June and a 0.9 percent slip for the week.
