Earnings

January 16, 1987

Despite higher revenue for the year and fourth quarter, Beverly Hills-based Hilton Hotels Corp. posted lower profits of 2.4% and 8.7%, respectively. Operating income from its hotel sector declined by 8% for the year, while income from the company's gaming operations were up 15%.
