Honeywell: “We’re raising the low end of our 2012 guidance by $0.05, with the expectation of continued margin expansion in the second half driving our strong full-year outlook. Given the increasingly uncertain global economic environment, we’ll remain flexible, but also continue to invest in sustainable growth through seed planting in new products and technologies, geographic expansion, and our key process initiatives, all supporting our Great Positions in Good Industries throughout the world,” Dave Cote, chairman and CEO.
