German electricity and gas supplier E.ON AG has lowered its earnings forecast for next year because of economic uncertainties and changes in the energy industry. The reduced forecast comes as the utility, which is based in Duesseldorf, reported a 179 million euro (US $228 million) loss for the third quarter. A year earlier, it made a net profit of 173 million euro.  Though the company says Tuesday Nov. 13, 2012  it's on track to meet its target for this year of underlying net income between 4.1 billion euro and 4.5 billion euro, it says it's reviewing its longer-term targets.
