Salomon Inc.'s third-quarter earnings more than doubled to $64 million, largely due to lower expenses and strong gains in oil refining and trading in its Phibro Energy unit. Revenue dropped 17% to $1.29 billion. Salomon Bros., the company’s investment banking unit and its largest division, also reported a strong gain.
