Companies reporting:

BCE Inc. (TSX:BCE). Down seven cents to $57.49. The parent company of Bell Canada had an eight per cent decline in fourth quarter net income last year, as an asset writedown and other expense items offset higher revenue for the telecommunications and media company. BCE says its net income fell to $642 million in the three months ended Dec. 31 while net income attributable to common shareholders fell to $606 million or 68 cents per share. Operating revenues rose three per cent to $6.22 billion while its adjusted earnings rose 7.9 per cent to $794 million or 89 cents per share. BCE also announced a five per cent increase in its common share dividend to 79.25 cents per quarter.

Bombardier Inc. — The transportation company announced a leadership shakeup Thursday, naming a new head of the company's troubled train unit after his predecessor resigned. Danny Di Perna, 53, has replaced Laurent Troger, 55, who took on the role in December 2015 after 11 years with the company, Bombardier said. The abrupt announcement comes as the Montreal-based company enters the final two years of a five-year turnaround. Over the past decade, delays and repair problems have plagued Bombardier train contracts including Toronto's streetcar and light-rail train orders.

Nutrien Ltd. (TSX:NTR). Up $1.07 to $69.51. Nutrien says lower crop prices last year from trade uncertainty and high crop yields put pressure on its customers but that it expects the situation to improve this year. Prices are already improving for key crops and the fundamentals have improved, said company CEO Chuck Magro on an earnings call Thursday. He said that a resolution of the trade dispute between the U.S. and China would help but that it expects this year to be better than last either way. The company said it earned US$3.57 billion last year, compared with a combined net income of US$327 million for PotashCorp and Agrium Inc. a year earlier before the two merged to form Nutrien.

Saputo Inc. (TSX:SAP). Up $1.71 or 4.3 per cent to $41.23. The daily and cheese producer says it earned $342 million in its latest quarter, up from $337 million in the same quarter last year. Saputo says the profit amounted to 87 cents per diluted share for the quarter ended Dec. 31, up from 86 cents per diluted share a year earlier. Revenue in what was the company's third quarter totalled $3.58 billion, up from $3.02 billion a year earlier, as the company benefited from acquisitions. On an adjusted basis, Saputo says it earned 44 cents per diluted share, down from an adjusted profit of 47 cents per diluted share a year earlier.

Maple Leaf Foods Inc. (TSX:MFI). Up two cents to $29.99. The Supreme Court of Canada will hear a case on whether a distributor is responsible for a franchisee's losses during a food recall. The top court has granted an application for leave to appeal by a class-action lawsuit representing Mr. Submarine Inc. franchisees against Maple Leaf Foods Inc. and Maple Leaf Consumer Foods Inc. The case started after a 2008 recall when Toronto-based Maple Leaf pulled roughly 200 products due to a deadly listeria outbreak caused by contamination at one of its plants.
