    Akamai Targets Rising: CEO Leighton Discusses Diversification

    Shares of Internet bandwidth and applications provider Akamai Technologies (AKAM) are up $1.77, or almost 3%, at $65.44, despite the market’s wobbly session, following a report of better-than-expected Q4 results yesterday afternoon, and an upbeat outlook. There are no ratings changes today, that I can see, but several price target increases, going up into the $80 range. In a phone call a short while ago, CEO Tom Leighton described to me the ways the company continues to diversify away from its traditional business as a “CDN,” when it was mostly known for helping Netflix (NFLX) and others push bandwidth-heavy video to viewers.

    Akamai lays off 400 people across company

    Cambridge-based Akamai Technologies Inc. has laid off about 400 people, roughly 5 percent of its global workforce, in the past few months as experiments meant to reignite growth in one of its core divisions have failed. The layoffs have mostly hit employees in Akamai's Media Division, CEO Tom Leighton said on Tuesday during the company's fourth quarter earnings call. It's the core technology that turned Akamai (AKAM) into one of the top tech companies in Massachusetts, but some of the division's largest customers — including Apple, Facebook, Netflix and Microsoft — have begun to build their own in-house content delivery networks over the past few years, reducing their reliance on Akamai.

    Akamai revenue, profit top estimates on robust cloud demand

    Activist investor Elliott Management, which has disclosed a 6.5 percent stake, would push Akamai to curtail what the hedge fund sees as wasteful spending, among other measures, sources told Reuters in December. "As part of our effort to improve operational efficiency, we reduced headcounts in targeted areas of business, most notably in areas tied to our media business," Chief Executive Tom Leighton said on a post-earnings call with analysts. Akamai's media business, which helps in faster delivery of content through the web, has been under pressure from large customers, such as Apple Inc (AAPL.O) and Amazon.com (AMZN.O), developing in-house capabilities to handle their web traffic.

    Hexavest is a Montreal-based institutional investment manager that is 49% owned by Eaton Vance. Being contrarian is Hexavest’s raison d’être. Jean-René Adam, co-chief investment officer, declares in the firm’s introduction video, “When everybody’s bullish on something, we see that as a negative.” One negative that Hexavest is facing is that its U.S. equities investments, which totaled about $8.8 billion on Dec. 31, are trailing the Standard & Poor’s 500 index for every time period when fees are taken into account.
