TORONTO Jan 4 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index briefly turned positive on Friday as firmer energy and financial stocks helped temper losses among materials companies.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 0.49 of a point to 12,470.93 before turning modestly negative again. Seven of the index's ten main groups were lower.
