The article reports that cooling off a long ride of strong earnings growth, fourth quarter profits at Mohawk Industries Inc. The company might have reported a small earnings drop but for a deep 13.5 percent cut in interest expense, which saved it $1.9 million. The closing quarter came as something of a rude awakening to investors who had become accustomed to strong, steady earnings growth. In sharp contrast to the relatively flat fourth quarter, earnings had grown 23.3 percent during the third quarter.
