Abbott Laboratories recently said earnings will climb to as much as $2.67 a share next year, as the North Chicago-based company markets new products such as the Xact carotid-artery stent. Net income probably will rise to at least $2.61 a share, the company said. That compares with a range of $2.08 to $2.10 a share this year.
