A boost from housing market helped Home Depot's net income edge up in its fiscal third quarter. The home-improvement retailer says its net income rose to $947 million, or 63 cents per share for the quarter ended Oct. 28. That's up from $934 billion, or 60 cents per share, a year earlier. Excluding a charge for closing some stores in China, Home Depot earned 74 cents per share. That topped analysts' expectations.
