Under The Radar: Akamai

Thursday, 25 Mar 2010 | 5:35 PM ET

If you watch Fast Money regularly you know that Akamai is a favorite on the desk.

But sentiment on the Street is somewhat mixed. Earlier in the month Merriman Curhan Ford upgraded the company, citing growing Web traffic, an improving economy and a diminished threat from rivals.

However Citi analyst and Fast Money friend Mark Mahaney downgraded the stock earlier in the week to Hold from Buy, in what he calls “purely a valuation call.”

Under the Radar
Akamai Technologies just signed a contract to be content delivery for Netflix streaming services, with Paul Sagan, Akamai Technolgies CEO.

Considering the dissenting views, what must you know about this company before you place your bets? Find out from CEO Paul Sagan.
