Companies in the news:

National Bank of Canada. (TSX:NA). Finance. Up $2.88, or 2.55 per cent, to $115.89. Quebec-focused National Bank of Canada bucked the general trend of downward profits among banks this quarter as it benefited from higher stability in its home market. On Wednesday, the Montreal-based bank reported a second-quarter profit of $906 million, up from $832 million a year earlier, while raising its quarterly dividend by four cents to $1.10 per share. The increased payment to shareholders came as National Bank says its profit amounted to $2.54 per diluted share for the quarter ended April 30, up from $2.34 per diluted share in the same quarter last year. Adjusted profits were reported as the same.

Bank of Montreal. (TSX:BMO). Finance. Down $11.62, or 8.86 per cent, to $119.48. BMO Financial Group shares came under pressure after the bank reported results that missed expectations on higher loan-loss provisions and U.S. growth issues. The bank, which significantly expanded its U.S. presence early last year with its US$16.3-billion Bank of the West acquisition, said the results reflect a challenging environment there along with pressure on Canadian borrowers from higher interest rates.
