Perhaps it has more than a little to do with the online off-pricer’s robust performance projections for the full year, in which it expects its volume to run up more than fourfold, surpassing $50 million, and its bottom line to be in the black for the fourth quarter. Further, the net profit trend is one that Carl S. Rosendorf, chief executive of the 22-month-old Web site, anticipates will continue throughout 2003.

"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)
