Citi: Akamai Stock Expensive, Downgrades AKAM

Content delivery network Akamai Technologies (AKAM) is still a “core Internet stock,” but it’s not cheap enough to buy, says Citi analyst Mike Mahaney, who downgraded the stock to “hold” this morning. Shares closed Friday at $40.33, within 4% of Citi’s $42 price target. Mahaney says Akamai’s profit growth can support its current valuation — “but not one materially higher.” He says buy AKAM at $35 or below. Shares dropped 1.4% this morning to $39.77.
