Colgate profit rises

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Colgate-Palmolive Co <CL.N> on Thursday posted a higher quarterly profit, helped by growth in emerging markets and the weaker dollar.

The maker of Colgate toothpaste and a host of other household and personal-care products said fourth-quarter profit was $414.9 million, or 77 cents a share, compared with $401.2 million, or 73 cents a share, a year earlier.
