EARNINGS

August 05, 1987

Castle & Cooke's income dropped 35% to $28.4 million in the second quarter, compared to the year-ago period. The Los Angeles-based holding company for Dole Foods, Flexi-Van Leasing and Oceanic Properties blamed a decrease in Dole Foods' second-quarter earnings due to lower banana prices. In the year-ago quarter, tight supply conditions for bananas improved prices and produced a record profit for Dole.
