Home Capital Group Inc. (TSX:HCG). Financial Services. Down $11.10, or 64.95 per cent, to $5.99 on 14.4 million shares. The mortgage lender warned it would be unable to meet its financial targets under the terms of a new credit line it is working to secure. Home Capital sought the credit line as savers stepped up withdrawals from the high-interest savings accounts of its Home Trust subsidiary, used by the company to fund its lending.

Cenovus Energy Inc. (TSX:CVE). Oil and gas. Down 25 cents, or 1.75 per cent, to $14.01 on 2.9 million shares. A $17.7-billion megadeal to buy most of the Canadian assets of ConocoPhillips will make Cenovus a "better and stronger company," CEO Brian Ferguson said Wednesday in a staunch response to the deal's critics. The Calgary-based Cenovus's share price has fallen more than 18 per cent since the acquisition was announced March 29 and an investor, Toronto-based Coerente Capital Management, has asked the Ontario Securities Commission to halt the deal.

Empire Co. Ltd. (TSX:EMP.A). Grocer. Up 22 cents, or 1.07 per cent, to $20.80 on 361,015 shares. The parent company of the Sobeys grocery chain has hired away Hydro One's chief financial officer. Michael Vels will leave the Ontario power grid operator on May 19 and become chief financial officer of Stellarton, N.S.-based company, on June 12.

Restaurant Brands International Inc. (TSX:QSR). Fast food restaurants. Down $2.33, or 2.94 per cent, to $77.02 on 723,719 shares. The Oakville, Ont.-based company reported flat first-quarter sales at its established Tim Hortons and Burger King stores. RBI increased revenue by $82.1 million to about US$1 billion — about three-quarters of it from Tim Hortons — and adjusted earnings rose 20 per cent to $170.6 million, or 36 cents per share.
