Beleaguered online retailer Shopping.com said Friday that founder and Chief Executive Robert J. McNulty has resigned. The company named retailing veteran John H. Markley, 58, to relace him. Markley, who also will serve on the board, was formerly chairman and chief executive of Pay N' Pak Home Centers, which filed for bankruptcy in 1991. McNulty 52, said Friday that he decided to leave the 2-year-old money-losing company because it had reached a point in its maturity when "it needed a new CEO."

Shares of beleaguered Internet retailer Shopping.com seesawed dramatically Tuesday in the first trades since regulators slapped a two-week halt on trading March 24 and launched an investigation into possible stock manipulation.

It opened at $12 a share, soared to $25 and fell to close at $18 a share.
