CANADA STOCKS-TSX slips with banks, Cameco; Saputo jumps

TORONTO, Oct 27 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index slipped early on Friday, weighed by banks and Cameco Corp's disappointing earnings and outlook, while gold miners gained and dairy company Saputo Inc rose after agreeing to buy an Australian milk producer.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 4.96 points, or 0.03 percent, at 15,886.67. It is on track for a 0.2 percent gain on the week. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
