CINCINNATI - Procter & Gamble Co.'s fourth-quarter revenue and net income jumped by double digits on strong sales in emerging markets such as China and India. But the world's largest consumer products company sees things slowing down this quarter as the U.S. and other developed economies struggle.

The Cincinnati-based maker of Tide detergent, Pampers diapers and Gillette shavers on Friday reported earnings per share of 84 cents, as net income rose 15 percent to $2.51 billion. Revenue jumped 10 percent to $20.86 billion. Analysts expected 82 cents on $20.57 billion.

P&G expects earnings for the year ahead to be in a range of $4.17 to $4.33 per share. Analysts forecast $4.29 per share.

In the current quarter, P&G expects earnings in a $1-$1.04 range; analysts were looking for $1.14.
