Why single out AKAM? Look at CRM, NFLX, and BIDU. Don't tell me they are not overvalued. Why not downgrading the whole tech sector? There are reasons why some co. trading at high PE. Just ask HPQ and IBM....look at the premium they paid for PAR and NZ.
The timing of this downgrade should be noted. We've been above $40 for a long time and suddenly this guy thinks the stock is overvalued and rates it a sell. Sell ratings are very rare. Manipulation takes many forms.
