(RTTNews) – The Canadian market ended modestly higher on Friday after another lackluster session as investors once again refrained from making significant moves amid a lack of triggers.

The benchmark S&P/TSX Composite Index, which climbed to 20,446.28 around mid morning, gaining over 100 points in the process, gave up most of its gains as the session progressed and finally closed at 20,383.77, up 39.70 points or 0.2% from the previous close.

The TSX gained about 2% in the week.

Shares from utilities and real estate sectors had a good outing. Materials shares were mostly subdued. Shares from the rest of the sectors turned in a mixed performance.

Softchoice Corporation (SFTC.TO) surged nearly 8%. Logistec Corporation (LGT.B.TO), Atco (ACO.Y.TO), Emera Inc (EMA.TO), Linamar Corporation (LNR.TO), Nutrien (NTR.TO), Cargojet (CJT.TO) and Canadian Pacific Railway (CP.TO) gained 1 to 3.2%.
