After a Bruising Year, McGraw-Hill Faces a Tough Fourth Quarter

McGraw-Hill (MHP) is coming off a tumultuous year that saw CEO Harold McGraw III (pictured) execute the sale of BusinessWeek to Bloomberg and a major corporate reorganization (with lost jobs for hundreds of employees). On the plus side, McGraw-Hill's Standard & Poor unit started slowly coming out of a funk, thanks to small improvements in debt markets. Now, McGraw-Hill is set to report its fourth-quarter earnings before the market opens on Tuesday.
