Companies in the news:

Great-West Lifeco Inc. (TSX:GWO). Up 28 cents or 0.74 per cent to $38. Great-West Lifeco Inc. says its net profit decreased 9.2 per cent in its latest quarter compared with a year earlier when it benefited from a bounce back from COVID-19 pandemic related shocks in the prior quarter. The Winnipeg-based insurer says its net income attributable to shareholders was $784 million or 84 cents per diluted share, down from $863 million or 93 cents per share a year earlier. Excluding one-time items, "base" earnings were $826 million or 89 cents per share, up 17 per cent from $706 million or 76 cents per share in the second quarter of 2020. The increase was due to the $63-million contribution from Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company acquired in December, higher equity markets and favourable morbidity experience in Europe and Canada. Great-West was expected to report 79 cents per share in base earnings, according to financial data firm Refinitiv. Canada was the biggest contributor to base earnings at $293 million, but that was down seven per cent from the prior year. U.S. earnings more than doubled to $190 million while Europe rose 2.8 per cent to $184 million.
