    no more excitement @ AKAM infested with big time manipulators

    Small fish need to get out and find a better company to invest. AKAM is a Shorts and Option traders favorite but not for long term investor. Amazon is offering an affordable iCloud taking away some revenue from AKAM. There are also other players in the market. Akam will have a hard time prooving its long term existence. The market share of AKAM will be eaten by the other players in its segment or its customers will build their own like Netflix and Amazon did.

    • Total B.S.! It has yet to be proven that Amazon will be taking any market shares away from Akamai. This was the same thing that has been spewed for years regarding LLNW and LVLT taking away business from Akamai. Well, Akamai is still the king and giant of their CDN space. They have additional value added services such as security that puts them apart from the rest of the want-to-be-Johnny-come-latelys. Amazon is way late in the game and Akamai has years of experience and clout to keep them ahead of any so-called competitors. I see Amazon as only a niche player that will not have the impact that the bashers want you to believe. It is all speculation that feeds their short interests. Like I said... this is the same #$%$ that spewed out for years keeping Akamai's price at bay. Right now it is a super bargain entry point that could well double the current price in a year. Before you make claims of dwindling revenue - prove it first. Your talk is cheap!
