The S& P/ TSX composite was down 64.10 points at 15,386.77 after rising nearly 62 points on Wednesday. Meanwhile, the loonie extended its gains for a third day, rising 0.80 of a U. S. cent to 82.10 cents. On Wall Street, markets were relatively flat after a recent spate of uninspiring economic reports. For instance, the number of Americans who applied for unemployment support last week rose for the second consecutive week. The Dow Jones industrial average was down 6.84 points at 18,105.77, while the Nasdaq fell 3.23 points to 5,007.79 and the S& P 500 slipped 1.64 points to 2,104.99. Although analysts have been anticipating a rough earnings season, with the strong U. S. dollar expected to hurt profits at large, multinational companies, most of the earnings reports that have come in so far have beat analyst expectations. On the commodity markets, the May crude contract rose 32 cents to US$ 56.71 a barrel, while the June gold contract dipped $ 3.50 to US$ 1,198.00 an ounce and May copper surged six cents to US$ 2.77 a pound.

Shares of arts and crafts retailer Etsy surged in opening trading on the Nasdaq Thursday. After pricing at $ 16 late Wednesday, the stock opened at nearly double that level, and hit a high of $ 35.73 in morning trading. The stock finished at $ 30 per share, up 87.5 per cent for the day and valuing the company at $ 3.33 billion. The healthy stock surge shows Wall Street has a big appetite for a well- known retail brand, even one that doesn’t yet make a profit. Thursday was one of the biggest days for initial public offerings so far this year, with party- store operator Party City and electronic trading firm Virtu Financial also making big debuts. “ It’s been a very slow IPO market so far this year, and investors have been on the sideline waiting for a new name, especially a new name that’s familiar,” said Sam Hamadeh, CEO of research firm Privco. Founded in 2005, Brooklyn- based Etsy sells anything from a $ 110,000 antique desk from the 1800s to a $ 20 handmade antler pendant and everything in between. In 10 years, it’s grown from a scrappy startup offering craftspeople a way to sell necklaces and needlepoint online to a marketplace of 54 million members that generated $ 1.93 billion in sales in 2014. While it doesn’t make a profit — it reported a loss of $ 15.2 million in 2014 — it has a very loyal customer base and room for revenue growth. The company says 78 per cent of people who bought items on the site in 2014 were return customers. And although it has a reputation for being a grassroots site, its revenue model is becoming more like Alibaba, the Chinese e- commerce powerhouse. In addition to taking a small percentage of each transaction made on Etsy, it is increasingly offering services such as marketing and payment processing to its sellers. About 42 per cent of its revenue in 2014 came from services. “ We think that it’s a very interesting company, and investors are going to like the growth they see,” said Kathleen Smith, IPO exchange- traded fund manager at IPOresearch firm Renaissance Capital. Etsy is a B Corporation, a for- profit company with a stated social mission certified by a non- profit organization called B Lab. That could make for a tricky balancing act of keeping its socially conscious ethos alive while satisfying stockholder demands. But it could help that some shareholders will be Etsy sellers themselves — Etsy planned for five per cent of the shares sold to be set aside for individual investors, including people who use its site. And it is using $ 300,000 of the proceeds from the debut to fund Etsy. org, a website established to promote entrepreneurship for women in disadvantaged communities. — The Associated Press MONTREAL — Canadian National ( TSX: CNR) plans to spend $ 500 million in Western Canada to improve feeder rail lines that are handling rising volumes of industrial products, natural resources and energy- related commodities. About $ 100 million will be spent this year in northern Alberta to handle higher anticipated volume in the Peace River region, the railway said Thursday, adding feeder lines in Saskatchewan and Manitoba will be included in the $ 500- million multi- year program. “ CN sees significant long- term potential in its customer base located on its Western Canada feeder network,” chief executive Claude Mongeau said in a statement. “ We want to provide our customers with the capacity for continued efficient freight transportation services that increase their competitiveness in North American and global markets, as well as ensure our rail infrastructure is as safe as possible.” The improvements include heavier rails, crushed- rock ballast and ties along the roadbed. CN spokesman Mark Hallman said record volumes of some types of freight originating in Western Canada last year “ resulted in some increase in accidents owing to track issues on that part of CN’s network, including northern Alberta.” “ CN’s multi- year capital program announced today for Western Canada represents a major CN investment in longterm safety and capacity improvements,” Hallman said in an email. “ In 2015, CN plans to invest approximately C$ 2.6 billion in capital programs across its North American network, of which approximately C$ 1.3 billion is targeted toward maintaining the safety and integrity of the network, particularly track infrastructure. Total CN capital expenditures this year will account for more than 20 per cent of total revenues — this puts CN’s at the upper end of investment rates in the rail industry.” — The Canadian Press CN to spend $ 500M to boost feeder lines Etsy stock soars in its debut Nearly doubles as it hits Nasdaq MARK LENNIHAN / THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Etsy executtives, employees and guests celebrate the company’s IPO at the Nasdaq MarketSite Thursday.
