TORONTO, Jan 18 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index was
higher shortly after the open on Friday, with Research In Motion
Ltd shares leading broad gains after an analyst boosted
its rating and price target on the company days ahead of the
crucial launch of a new product line. 
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 37.40 points, or 0.30 percent, at 12,712.13.
All but two of the index's main sectors were higher, with the
technology group up 1.43 percent.
