CANADA STOCKS-TSX falls as Hudson's Bay shares slump

TORONTO, Dec 6 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell in early trade on Wednesday, hurt by a tumble in shares of Hudson's Bay Co after the department store operator posted a wider-than-expected quarterly loss, while financial and energy stocks also weighed.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 55.51 points, or 0.35 percent, at 15,860.17 shortly after the open. Nine of its 10 main groups were lower. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by Meredith Mazzilli)
