TORONTO Jan 6 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index finished higher on Tuesday for a sixth straight session on strength across its three biggest sectors -- energy, materials and financials.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed up 1.78 percent, or 165.18 points, at 9,450.69. Eight of the index's main 10 groups were higher, reflecting a broadening of investor interest in noncommodity sectors as economic stimulus plans supported sentiment.
