a big day for biotech

The S&P/TSX Composite Index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) was down last week, closing at 15,416.93 points, a loss of 0.79 percent.

That being said, the index rose slightly on Friday (May 26). While pipeline companies and railway stocks slipped, banks and gold stocks gained.

Some investors noted that despite increasing political uncertainty, trading was slow ahead of the long weekend in the US.  “This is pretty common going into a long weekend. (But) this is a pattern we’ve seen happening over the last several months, where if you have a slow day in terms of news releases, the market is almost eerily quiet,” Tim Courtney, chief investment officer at Exencial Wealth Advisors, told Reuters

That said, a number of TSXV-listed stocks in the mining sector saw share price increases last week. The top gainers were:

  • Alderon Iron Ore (TSX:IRON)
  • Golden Minerals (TSX:AUMN,NYSEMKT:AUMN)
  • TMAC Resources (TSX:TMR)
  • Wellgreen Platinum (TSX:WG)
  • Orocobre (TSX:ORL,ASX:ORE)

Without further ado, here’s a look at those companies and what moved their share prices last week.

5 Top Weekly TSX Stocks: Lundin Mining Surges on Feasibility Study Results

by Priscila Barrera

The S&P/TSX Composite Index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) ended slightly lower last week, closing at 15,458.46 points, a loss of 0.54 percent.

That said, the index rallied on Friday (May 19) ahead of the Victoria Day long weekend. The rise was led by energy-focused companies, whose share prices were buoyed by rising oil prices. The market was also affected last week by US political turbulence; however, Friday was calm as US President Donald Trump left for his first foreign trip.

“You’ve had no Washington drama today and decent earnings,” said David Joy, chief market strategist at Ameriprise Financial in Boston. “It’s the cyclical parts of the market that are moving today and the defensives are lagging. With Washington not in the headlines, we can focus on the economy, and the economy is in good shape in our view.”

On the back of those developments, a number of TSX-listed stocks in the mining sector saw share price increases. The top gainers were:

  • Treasury Metals (TSX:TML)
  • Serabi Gold (TSX:SBI)
  • Red Eagle Mining (TSX:R)
  • Lundin Mining (TSX:LUN)
  • Royal Nickel (TSX:RNX)

Without further ado, here’s a look at the five top weekly TSX stocks and what moved their share prices last week.

Serabi Gold is a gold exploration and production company involved in the evaluation and development of gold deposits in Brazil.

It produced 9,861 ounces of gold during the period, on budget and in line with guidance. The news sent its share up 13.33 percent to reach $0.08.
