CANADA STOCKS-TSX slips shortly after open as financials, Aimia drag

TORONTO, May 11 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index fell on Thursday, dragged lower by financial stocks following a downgrade by Moody’s on Canada’s six biggest banks, and loyalty program operator Aimia Inc, which plunged on news Air Canada will launch its own program.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index fell 24.95 points, or 0.16 percent, to 15,608.26. Three of the index’s 10 main groups retreated. (Reporting by Solarina Ho)
