Honda's third quarter profit rose 74% to a record level for the period, bolstered by the impact of the weak yen and strong sales at home and in overseas markets. The results were broadly in line with analysts' expectations. The company said that net income rose to 82.3 billion yen ($621 million), or 84.4 yen a share, for the October- December quarter, from 47.3 billion yen, or 48.6 yen a share, a year earlier.
