TORONTO, May 10 (Reuters) - Canadian stocks rose for the
first time in more than a week on Thursday as encouraging U.S.
jobs data and slightly more positive conditions in Europe coaxed
investors to buy back shares of beaten down energy and financial
firms.	
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially finished up 61.16 points, or 0.5 percent,
at 11,736.17. It snapped a string of six straight losing
sessions that saw the TSX fall more than 5 percent.
