Akamai Technologies Inc. stock (NASDAQ: AKAM) is up more than 10% in the past month (21 trading days), outperforming the S&P 500 which was up almost 6% over this period. If you look at the change over the last five and ten days, too, the stock has risen 3.2% and 9% respectively, outperforming the broader markets on both occasions. Akamai’s most recent FY ’21 earnings saw revenue rise to $3.46 billion, up from $3.2 billion in FY ’20. Further, a slower rise in operating expenses meant that operating profit widened from $659 million to $783 million over this period. Despite a rise in net interest expense and a higher effective tax rate, net income rose from $557 million to $652 million over this period, with EPS rising from $3.43 to $4.01.

Great upsie potential, breaking out.

Strong hints of a great earnings report for AKAM , in the sweet spot of many sectors, growth has and will continue to be amazing. The stock is currently breaking out prior to earnings and with customers such as Microsoft , a bright future is ahead.

Akamai Dips After Downgrade, Watch This Trade Level

Akamai Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:AKAM) is a leader in providing services that improve the delivery of content and applications over the internet. Today, the stock is declining by 4.0 percent to $56.64 a share. The fall comes after a downgrade was issued in the stock. Traders and investors should note that the market is still in a very volatile environment causing stocks to really overreact to any news. Either way, AKAM stock should have excellent daily chart support around the $50.00 area should it decline further. This level is where the stock was defended in October 2017 after forming a bearish pattern. I would likely be a buyer of the stock around this important support area when tested. Please note, AKAM is scheduled to report earnings on February 5th after the closing bell.

Akamai Continues To Tumble, Know This Trade Level

Last week, leading content delivery network (CDN) provider Akamai Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:AKAM) sold off after reporting earnings. The stock peaked out in February at around $71.00 a share. Today, AKAM stock is trading at $51.25 a share. So is this stock now a value play? Not so fast, AKAM stock should still have a bit more downside pressure before it flushes out all of the sellers.

Traders and investors should now watch the $48.00 area for a significant low in the stock. This is an area where the stock actually broke out in February 2016. This should be a level where the institutions will likely step in and support the stock. Here's the trade, buy AKAM at $48.00 with a weekly chart stop loss below $45.00. The upside in this stock is for a move back to $55.00 and possibly higher.

Yeah, when a company with a $10B Market Cap is using your
technology (& the stock is priced at $0.08) it does make ONE
sit up & take note!!!

I am glad the short slime ball got it handed to him!!!

I've always looked into & read Akamai's "State of the Internet"
REPORT & used them as my GO-TO internet authority & source of
quality information. I just never thought to check out the company
more closely until just after seeing that news.


All the BEST. Thanks for the kind update.

Ah makes sense. Well I can tell you that Akamai is no joke, and could bring credibility to your penny stock company.

Raj is just an unskilled, POS predator, hedge fund slimeball that bought and sold AKAM several times on insider info. It's been well documented on American Greed. It seemed to give the company some visibility that actually made for sweet gains for us traders who use our brains and play fair. Winning!

Congratulation on the ride!!! Looks great! I became interested

Akamai Shares Plunge After Revenue, Forecast Miss Estimates
By Sarah Frier - Feb 6, 2013 10:01 PM MT.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-02-06/akamai-tumbles-after-fourth-quarter-sales-miss-analyst-estimates.html?cmpid=yhoo

Akamai Technologies Inc., a company that helps customers speed the delivery of online content, tumbled as much as 17 percent in late trading after its quarterly revenue and forecast missed estimates.

Fourth-quarter sales climbed 17 percent to $378 million, the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based company said yesterday in a statement. That trailed the $381.4 million predicted by analysts on average, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. For the first quarter, the company forecast revenue of $352 million to $362 million, short of the $369.8 million estimate.

The results showed signs of softening demand for Akamai’s services, which help customers such as news sites and Web retailers speed up their online offerings, said Chad Bartley, an analyst at Portland, Oregon-based Pacific Crest Securities.

β€œRevenue was definitely lighter than expectations,” he said. β€œGrowth decelerated quite a bit in the fourth quarter.”

Akamai shares fell as low as $34.60 in extended trading after the earnings report. The stock, up 1.6 percent this year, had closed at $41.58 yesterday in New York.

The results marked the first quarterly earnings report for Tom Leighton, a company co-founder who took the chief executive officer job on Jan. 1. He was named to the post in December after an eight-month search.

Even with the sales shortfall, earnings topped analysts’ projections last quarter. It posted an adjusted profit of 54 cents a share, compared with an average estimate of 50 cents.

Akamai and AT&T Forge Global Strategic Alliance to Provide Content Delivery Network Solutions

Deal includes expansion of AT&T's suite of CDN services, network infrastructure agreement


CAMBRIDGE, Mass. and DALLAS, Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Akamai Technologies, Inc. (AKAM) and AT&T* today announced a strategic alliance to deliver a global suite of content delivery network (CDN) solutions to companies.

AT&T is combining Akamai's industry leading content delivery platform with its world-renowned IP network to deliver to companies an exclusive suite of global CDN and telecom solutions that will be jointly marketed, managed and supported by the two companies. The companies will initially focus their efforts in North America, with plans to expand globally within 12 months.

The alliance with Akamai represents the latest milestone in AT&T's strategy to deliver innovative solutions needed by companies that have seen explosive growth in the use of video and other content, both within their operations and by the end users they serve. Driven by explosive growth in digital media, organizations are designing high-performing networking solutions that produce quality, on-demand results. CDN solutions from AT&T and Akamai will help enterprises simplify content distribution management and drive higher-performing end user experiences for consumers accessing content on the Internet.

Under the terms of the agreement, Akamai will deploy CDN servers at the edge of AT&T's IP network and in AT&T facilities throughout the United States. With the deployment of Akamai's CDN infrastructure within AT&T's network infrastructure, end customers are expected to benefit from more efficient content routing and better delivery of digital content, video and Web applications, resulting in a better end-user experience. AT&T will transfer its existing CDN operations, customers and service to the Akamai platform in 2013.

The companies have also agreed to dedicate shared resources including technical support, customer care, marketing and professional services support.

"The alliance with Akamai positions us perfectly to deliver premier content delivery solutions to our business customers," said Andy Geisse, Chief Executive Officer, AT&T Business Solutions. "By embedding Akamai's technology within AT&T's IP network, our customers now have access to a suite of solutions that more than meet their need for content delivery and support. In an environment where companies and consumers alike are accessing video content and other applications online and from a multitude of devices, I can't think of a better way to address the explosive growth in content that is sweeping across industries like media and retail."

"Aligning Akamai's services with the global reach, scale and product depth of AT&T creates a powerful relationship aimed at helping enterprises optimize their online businesses," said Paul Sagan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Akamai. "Together with AT&T, we share a common goal of developing solutions to maximize the Web and mobile end user experience, while driving down network-related costs and improving network efficiencies. We believe there will be tremendous value to customers in deploying within AT&T's robust IP network, and in jointly going to market with leading content delivery and cloud infrastructure offerings."

Akamai to Acquire Verivue

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. and WESTFORD, Mass., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Akamai Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AKAM) and Verivue announced today that the two companies have signed a definitive agreement for Akamai to acquire Verivue in a cash transaction. The acquisition is expected to complement Akamai's Aura Network Solutions and accelerate Akamai's time to market in providing a comprehensive, licensed content delivery network (CDN) solution for network operators.

According to market research firm IDC, network operators worldwide are looking at ways to leverage on-net CDNs to improve the performance of their own digital cable and IPTV premium services and extend their managed multiscreen offerings. Operators can position their on-net CDNs and other network resources as optimized on-ramps that content publishers, OTT content aggregators, application developers, and set-top box vendors can use to reach a critical mass of potential viewers and provide a better end-to-end experience for their end users.1

"Verivue has done an impressive job of building a licensed content delivery infrastructure and getting it deployed with several important operators," said Mick Scully, Vice President and General Manager of Akamai's Carrier Products Division. "We believe that Verivue's technology will complement our roadmap for creating a comprehensive Operator CDN solution. Akamai has relationships with hundreds of network operators, and we offer them instant federation with our global Intelligent Platform. We believe joining forces with Verivue will allow us to help operators maximize content revenues and network efficiencies as the flood of media and video traffic increases."

"Together with Akamai, we believe we will be able to offer the industry's most powerful, extensible and fully integrated Operator CDN platform," said James Dolce, CEO of Verivue. "This is an exciting step for our two companies. Operators are looking for services to drive revenue, such as advanced cloud capabilities or by providing licensed content to users on a variety of IP-connected devices. By combining our teams, we believe we can help meet this immediate market opportunity."

Founded in 2006, Verivue has approximately 60 employees. The closing of the transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to occur by the end of 2012.

About Verivue
Headquartered in Westford, MA, Verivue, Inc. develops and markets high-performance IP platforms that enable network operators to distribute, deliver and control enormous amounts of IP-based media traffic across a growing and diverse number of end devices.

According to an order from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, Akamai Technologies Inc.’s (AKAM) patent litigation case against Limelight Networks Inc. (LLNW) related to content delivery is to be reconsidered, reported Bloomberg.

Akamai had accused Limelight of having infringed on a certain content delivery patent way back in 2008. The Jury ruled in favor of Akamai and awarded it $45 million. However, the ruling was overturned by a District Court next year saying that Limelight did not completely infringe on Akamai’s patents.

However, with the revival of this case, Akamai would now have another chance to protect its patents related to content delivery against its competitors.

Akamai is a leading provider of content delivery network services, accounting for approximately 30.0% of all Internet traffic through its web content delivery and acceleration platform. Akamai recently acquired Cotendo to strengthen its presence in the content delivery market. Cotendo specializes in software and services that improve the delivery of content across the Web and on mobile-device networks.

We believe that any positive result in the case could give Akamai a competitive edge over its other competitors like Level 3 Communications Inc. (LVLT), AT&T Inc. (T) and Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ) over the long term.

Although Akamai has a strong presence in the content delivery market, intense competition has forced it to lower the price of its content delivery network services, particularly the digital media services, which will hurt its margins. Moreover, increasing total bandwidth costs remain a headwind for Akamai.

However, we believe that strong demand for cloud infrastructure solutions, security and mobile products, online video along with aggressive share repurchase and strategic partnerships are positives for the stock over the long term. Thus, we maintain our Neutral recommendation on a long-term basis (6-12 months). Currently, Akamai has a Zacks #3 Rank, which implies a Hold rating on a short-term basis.
