United Technologies Corp (UTX.N) posted a 10.5 percent rise in
profit, helped by growth at its Otis elevator and Hamilton
Sundstrand aircraft electronics units.
The world's biggest maker of elevators and air conditioners
posted fourth-quarter net income attributable to common
shareholders of $1.33 billion, or $1.47 per share, compared with
$1.2 billion, or $1.31 per diluted share, a year earlier.
Revenue was up less than 1 percent.
Chief Executive Louis Chenevert has said the company, which

may sell smaller pieces of its broad portfolio of businesses

billion takeover of Goodrich Corp GR.N.
Shares of the Hartford, Connecticut-based company are down
about 4 percent over the past year, while the blue-chip Dow
Jones industrial average .DJI, of which it is a component, is
