Ask Jeeves Inc. said its fourth-quarter loss will exceed forecasts and that its chief executive will step down. Its shares fell 43% in after-hours trading, after closing off 81 cents at $9.69 in regular Nasdaq trading before the announcement. The Emeryville, Calif.-based company said it expects a loss for the quarter of about 50 cents a share, rather than analysts' average estimate of a 33-cent loss, in part because of a slowdown in Internet advertising.
