GOOD QUARTER: Samsung Electronics Co. forecast another record quarterly operating profit. The guidance for Samsung's third-quarter earnings showed it was on track to report a record-high profit for a fourth straight quarter.

STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES: Strong sales of high-end smartphones are expected to offset weak semiconductor orders.

LOOKING AHEAD: Analysts say a rise in marketing spending will decrease the company's profit in the October-December quarter and sustaining fat margins in premium mobile devices could be increasingly tough.
