Canada's main stock index rose on Tuesday, as data showing domestic manufacturing activity expanded in July for the first time in five months bolstered optimism around a post-coronavirus economic recovery.

* The IHS Markit Canada Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' index (PMI) rose to a seasonally adjusted 52.9 in July from 47.8 in June, extending its recovery from 33.0 in April when businesses were closed to help contain the coronavirus pandemic.

* At 10:00 a.m. ET (1400 GMT), the Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was up 163.7 points, or 1.01%, at 16,332.9.

* The largest percentage gainer on the TSX was software developer Lightspeed POS Inc, which jumped 7.7%.

The healthcare sector jumped 3.8% and led gains on the index, as pot producer Canopy Growth Corp gained 7.2%.

* The energy sector climbed 2.7%, lifted by gains in shares of Ballard Power Systems Inc and Tourmaline Oil Corp, which rose 6.15% and 5.43%, respectively.

* However, oil prices slipped on concerns that a fresh wave of COVID-19 infections will hamper a global demand recovery just as major producers ramp up output.[O/R]

* The materials sector, which includes precious and base metals miners and fertilizer companies, lost 0.8%, with shares of gold miner Teranga Gold Corp falling 3.5%.

* On the TSX, 105 issues were higher, while 114 issues declined for a 1.09-to-1 ratio to the downside, with 38.23 million shares traded.

* Bank Of Montreal was among the most heavily traded stocks on the main index.

* The TSX posted 11 new 52-week highs and no new low.

* Across all Canadian issues there were 64 new 52-week highs and five new lows, with total volume of 84.80 million shares.
