    Lexmark quarterly profit falls
    NEW YORK, July 07 – Computer printer maker Lexmark International Inc. said on Tuesday second-quarter net income fell on weak sales of ink cartridges and higher sales of unprofitable inkjet printers.Lexington, Kentucky-based Lexmark, which competes with Hewlett-Packard Co., posted net income of $64.2 million, or 67 cents a share, down from $76.7 million, or 74 cents a share, a year earlier.Excluding a one-time benefit from restructuring-related activities, the company earned 65 cents a share. On that basis, analysts were expecting 63 cents a share, according to Reuters Estimates.

    Second-quarter revenue was $1.21 billion, down 2 percent from $1.23 billion last year.
    Analysts had expected revenue of $1.20 billion.Lexmark on July 9 slashed its second-quarter profit forecast, citing weak sales of inkjet replacement cartridges and lower per-unit revenue from hardware, driven by aggressive pricing, promotions and higher-than-expected product costs.To bolster its bottom line, Lexmark has in the past year reduced the number of lower-priced, unprofitable printers it sells. Printer makers typically sell printers at a loss in hopes of reaping profits from ink sales
