TORONTO Feb 11 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index ended lower on Thursday, weighed down by its heavyweight financials sector and especially insurer Manulife Financial after it missed earnings expectations and said it would have trouble reaching its 2016 targets.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 98.35 points, or 0.81 percent, at 12,087.37. Nine of its 10 main sectors fell. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by Meredith Mazzilli)
