Feb 27 (Reuters) - Zagg Inc posted fourth-quarter profit that blew past market estimates as strong holiday and online sales helped the mobile accessories maker more than double its revenue, and it forecast full-year revenue ahead of expectations.

Shares of the company were up as much as 5 percent in after-hours trade. They closed at $10.06, up nearly 4 percent, on the Nasdaq.

Net profit attributable to stockholders was $9.9 million, or 32 cents a share, compared with $3.4 million, or 13 cents a share, a year ago.

Excluding items, the company -- whose clients include AT&T , Best Buy Co Inc and Navarre Corp -- earned 27 cents a share, topping analysts' estimate by 7 cents.

Revenue rose 131 percent to $67.5 million, while analysts were expecting $64 million.
