CANADA STOCKS-TSX futures rise as oil hits 3-week high

May 15 (Reuters) - Stock futures for Canada’s main stock index were higher on Monday, helped by a bounce in oil prices following top producers Saudi Arabia and Russia’s comment on the extension of a supply cut.

Oil hit a three-week high above $52 a barrel after Saudi Arabia and Russia said an output cut needed to be extended until March 2018 to rein in a global crude glut.

June futures on the S&P TSX index were up 0.16 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

No economic data is scheduled for release.

Canada’s main stock index closed marginally lower on Friday, weighed by alternative lender Home Capital Group Inc after it acknowledged uncertainty about its ability to continue as a going concern, while natural resource stocks lent support.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were up 0.17 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET, while S&P 500 e-mini futures were up 0.1 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.02 percent.

SNC-Lavalin will not raise its offer for British engineering and construction firm WS Atkins unless it faces a rival bid for the British firm, the Canadian construction and engineering group said on Monday.

Home Capital Group Inc’s problems are contained but the sharp gains in Canadian home prices and their possible impact on the financial system are a primary concern for the Bank of Canada, Governor Stephen Poloz said in an interview with the Globe and Mail newspaper.

Gold producer Eldorado Gold Corp has agreed to buy the remaining shares of Integra Gold Corp, to expand its mining opportunities in the Eastern Abitibi region of Canada.
