TORONTO, April 27 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose on Wednesday as higher oil prices supported energy stocks, offsetting losses for technology stocks after worse-than expected results from two high profile U.S. companies.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 25.52 points, or 0.18 percent, at 13,834.96, shortly after the open. Five of the index's 10 main groups were higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
