Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. (TSX:CP). Up $2.46, or 1.45 per cent, to $172.25 on 317,482 shares. The company said Wednesday that chief executive Hunter Harrison has agreed to a one-year contract extension that will keep him at the railway until 2017.

The property and casualty insurer said its first-quarter net income was $160 million or $1.17 per share, down eight per cent from $174 million or $1.27 per share in the first quarter of 2013 as results were hurt by harsh winter weather.

Molson Coors Canada Inc. (TSX:TPX.B). Brewer. Up $2.22, or 3.40 per cent, to $67.52 on 5,062 shares. Molson Coors handily beat expectations as its first-quarter profit surged in part due to an improved performance in Canada despite weakness in the flagship Coors Light beer brand. The Denver and Montreal-based company, which reports in U.S. dollars, said Wednesday it earned US$163.4 million or 88 cents per diluted share for the period ended March 31. That compared with US$28.5 million or 16 cents per share a year earlier.

Talisman Energy (TSX:TLM). Oil and gas. Up 91 cents, or 8.19 per cent, to $12.02 on 13.9 million shares. Shares climbed as quarterly net income was $491 million, or 47 cents per share, compared with a net loss of $213 million or 21 cents per share in the first quarter last year.

Torstar Corp. (TSX:TS.B). Publishing. Up three cents, or 0.39 per cent, to $7.74 on 271,572 shares. The Toronto-based media company reported quarterly net earnings of $7.1 million or nine cents per share, up for five cents per share and $4.2 million of net income in the first quarter of 2013, while adjusted earnings of 14 cents met analyst estimates. Revenue totalled $310.5 million, down 6.6 per cent year-over-year.
