Shares of Charlotte Russe ( CHIC) were among the Nasdaq's winners Wednesday, climbing 10% after the young-women's clothing retailer lifted its estimates for its recently ended second quarter. The company now sees a profit of 1 cent to 3 cents a share, before items, compared with an earlier prediction that called for a loss of 3 cents to 7 cents a share. Analysts polled by Thomson First Call project a loss of 4 cents a share. The company said sales jumped about 35% in the quarter. Same-store sales, meanwhile, increased about 17%, which was above the company's forecast of a low double-digit increase. One disappointment in the quarter, however, came from the company's Rampage chain. "We are very pleased given the better than expected progress made at Charlotte Russe with comparable store sales growth and earnings for this quarter; however, on a very disappointing note, the Rampage chain has struggled due to missed trends and weakening overall performance," the company said. Shares were trading up $1.81 to $20.56. IHS ( IHS) jumped 15% after the energy services company posted better-than-expected first-quarter revenue.

During the year-earlier quarter, the company earned $13.1 million, or 23 cents a share, on revenue of $117 million. "We are excited about our strong first quarter operating results.
