NEW YORK — Alberto-Culver Co. managed double-digit profit gains for its fourth quarter and full year and expects growth to continue despite "substantial" political and economic challenges.
Net income surged 23.7 percent to $39.3 million, or 66 cents a diluted share, from $31.8 million, or 55 cents, a year ago. Without the amortization of goodwill in the year-ago quarter, earnings would have increased a milder 15 percent.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
