TORONTO, Sept 25 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index was little changed on Friday morning as strength in energy shares offset weak gold prices and a drop in Research in Motion after it delivered a disappointing outlook.

Shares of Research In Motion RIM.TO RIMM.O, the top net loser, tumbled 14.7 percent to C$76.93 after the BlackBerry maker reported a lower profit on Thursday and gave an outlook that fell short of analysts' expectations. [ID:nN24466680] RIM helped to drag the information technology sector down by 4 percent.

Joining the list of influential movers on the downside were gold miners including Barrick Gold (ABX.TO: Quote), which dropped 0.3 percent to C$39.50, and Goldcorp (G.TO: Quote), down 1.1 percent at C$42.46, and Kinross Gold (K.TO: Quote), which fell 1.1 percent to C$22.64. The price of gold hit a two-week low. [GOL/]   Continued...
