NEW YORK â¿¿ Procter & Gamble's turnaround is still a work in progress. The world's largest consumer product maker says its third-quarter net income rose 6 percent, helped by cost cuts and improvement in North America. But P&G's fourth-quarter outlook comes in short of Wall Street's expectations thanks to a mixed response to its new product introductions and what the company calls "choppy" market conditions that led to modest revenue gains. By Retail Writer Mae Anderson.
