TSX May Open Under Pressure on Global Growth Fears

Toronto's main stock index is likely to open lower on Thursday morning, as commodity prices declined on heightened worries about sluggish global economic recovery, prompting investors to cut exposure to riskier assets, according to Reuters.

Stocks to watch:

Thomson Reuters Corp. (TRI.TO) bought Chicago-based crop forecaster Lanworth Inc., expanding its commodity analytics group with a company that was an early leader in the use of satellite imagery to predict crop size.

JDS Uniphase Corp. (JDU.TO) forecast weak first quarter revenue on macro-economic challenges and inventory corrections but said booking trends were encouraging.
