In last quarter's earnings announcement, Akamai's CEO commented on just how great 2012 was overall for the company:
With strong revenue and profit performance in the fourth quarter, Akamai closed out 2012 with record results on both the top and bottom line.
Upgrade today and we ended up 4 cents with the market getting hammered. At least we were green in a sea of red!
I'm with you...AKAM will rise in longterm.
