The Associated Press

Among the earnings projection stories for Thursday, June 13, from AP Business News:

— Chemicals maker DuPont says it will reach only the low end of its net income forecast in 2013 because of the cool, wet spring weather, which is expected to reduce farmers' harvests.

— The chief financial officer of United Technologies Corp. says revenue growth in 2013 will likely be crimped due partly to Europe's weak economy.

— Southwest Airlines Co. says June ticket sales are "good" but the airline remains cautious about demand during the peak summer travel season because of automatic government spending cuts and higher taxes.
