  Martin’s ragingbull.com was a force to be reckoned with in mere months. It caught the eye of CMGI, the world's largest and most diverse network of Internet companies. Its chairman, David Wetherthell, hammered out a deal to fund the site over pizzas with Martin and his two cofounders. In February, the start-up was acquired by portal and search engine behemoth AltaVista for an undisclosed sum. How much? A few months before the buyout, Martin turned down an offer of $200 million. Raging Bull currently controls about 5.6 million shares of AltaVista stock, according to Securities and Exhange Commission filings. So you do the math. "Now we’re playing in the big leagues," Martin quipped after clinching the deal.
