Philips shares down despite profits jump

Shares in electronics giant Philips have fallen 5.5%, despite a 79% jump in profits in the last three months of 2010 compared with a year earlier.

The company said that cutting costs had helped its net income rise to 465m euros (£395m; $632m) from 260m euros in the fourth quarter of 2009.
