TORONTO, Aug 23 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index edged
up to a one-week high on Tuesday as better-than-expected
earnings for one of the country's major banks supported
financials, offsetting losses for the materials group.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 16.58 points, or 0.11 percent
at 14,764.77. Just four of the index's 10 main industry groups
ended higher.
