comment What is the meaning of the last phrase here?
The original text was not written in the most clear way possible. There is a omission which caused your confusion. What it was trying to say is '(the price increase did not turn into higher profit because) the increase was cancelled out by the ever increasing costs.'

For this question and your other questions, please provide 1. context, at least the containing sentence; 2. your own translation attempt and why do you think it's not good enough.

comment Chinese views on Erhua
@Sqrtbottle Many people (not necessarily the commenter above though) mistake the general traits of Northern dialects for 北京话 and believe 北京话 is 普通话. They are not fully aware of the special vocabs and pronunciations in real 北京话.

comment 百强 specification?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is too narrow and is not really about Chinese language or culture. I haven't heard any other business affix their name in this way.

comment What are the rules for using commas and periods in Chinese?
Can you elaborate on the question? I don't think comma is much different from in English except there is 顿号(、) for enumeration.

comment Forming sentences with resultative and directional complements
This answer did a great job analyzing the nuances about the sentences themselves as how it is usually done in textbook study, however, when a native speaker chooses one sentence over the others in a real life scenario, it's mostly about the tone, tense and prosody. By that I am not referring to 'language sense', but the fact that someone who likes four-character phrases may choose 来到上海 to rhythmically reconcile with the other phrases, regardless of semantic accuracy or adequacy.
