JAPAN— Toyota Motor, the Japanese auto giant, announced Monday that it expected the first loss in 70 years in its core vehicle-making business, underscoring how the economic crisis is spreading across the global auto industry.

Analysts said Toyota’s downward revision, its second in two months, showed that the worst financial crisis since the Depression is threatening not just the Big Three but even relatively healthy automakers in Japan, South Korea and Europe. Many other companies will also soon be reporting losses.

On Monday, Toyota said it expected a loss during the fiscal year of 150 billion yen, or $1.7 billion, in its group operating revenue, the amount it earns from its auto operations. Toyota said that would be its first operating loss since 1938, a year after the company was founded. The loss would also be a huge reversal from the 2.3 trillion yen, or $28 billion, in operating profit Toyota earned last fiscal year. The company, which has been neck and neck with General Motors to be the world’s largest vehicle-maker, said it still expected to eke out a narrow net profit in the current fiscal year, which ends March 31.

U.S. stocks fell, erasing last week’s advance, as a deteriorating outlook for corporate earnings and real estate offset expectations that government efforts to revive the economy will succeed.

Walgreen Co., the second-biggest U.S. drugstore chain, sank 4.2 percent after posting the slowest sales growth in at least 18 years. MetLife Inc., the insurer invested in $36 billion worth of commercial mortgages, tumbled 12 percent as analysts said the number of U.S. non-residential properties at risk of default may triple.
