BEFORE THE BELL
Canada's main stock index futures inched higher as optimism around a faster pace of economic rebound set the market on track for a second consecutive weekly gain. Wall Street futures were subdued, as a rise in bond yields weighed on richly valued technology stocks a day after the S&P 500 closed at a record high. European stocks were little changed, after hitting longest weekly highs since November 2019. Japan's Nikkei ended higher, with the beginning of the earnings season. The U.S. dollar recovered, following weak U.S. jobs data. Gold prices slipped. Oil prices were little changed. 


STOCKS TO WATCH
• Barrick Gold Corp: The company has reached a deal that gives the Papua New Guinea government a majority share in the Porgera gold mine as part of plans to restart operations, the company said. The deal will set a benchmark for further resources projects in the region, Prime Minister James Marape said in a statement, and help shape the terms of new developments by the likes of Australian gold miner Newcrest Mining.

 

• Turquoise Hill Resources Ltd: Rio Tinto said it has reached a binding agreement with Turquoise Hill over funding for expansion of the massive Oyu Tolgoi copper-gold mine in Mongolia. Rio and Turquoise Hill will restructure debt payments of up to $1.4 billion with lenders and look to raise up to $500 million in supplemental debt under existing financing arrangements. The agreement will smooth the way for the next phase of development, which has faced cost and timeline blowouts and has caused acrimony between the mining giant and its junior partner.
