Toyota Motors' (TM) stock surged more than 2% when the automaker reported a net profit of $3.2 billion, which was more than three times its net profit a year ago. Revenue also increased by 18%. The Japanese automaker performed well in both Japan and North America, the two regions from which it gets most of its revenue. The company has been losing out in China due to the Senkaku/Diaoyu island dispute between China and Japan. However, despite a massive loss of sales in China, the company still managed to push the global net profit forecast up from $9.45 billion to $9.7 billion, which reflects its strong performance in other parts of the world.
