Earnings rose to $1.32 billion, or $1.45 a share, up from $1.1 billion, or $1.20 a share, a year earlier.
Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters expected United Technologies to earn $1.41 a share in the quarter on revenue of $14.7 billion.United Technologies, in a press release Wednesday, said it was raising its full-year earnings outlook to $5.35 to $5.45 a share, up from $5.25 to $5.40 a share previously, "based on the exceptional first half performance at Carrier, strong order rates, and the weaker than planned U.S. dollar."
