    Akamai: Superior 'Edge' Network Could Lure Multiple Buyers, Says Credit Suisse

    Shares of content hosting pioneer Akamai Technologies (AKAM) are up $8.01, or almost 14%, at $65.79, continuing after-hours gains from Friday, when activist firm Elliott Management disclosed after market close that it has taken a 6.5% stake in the stock, and that it intends to talk with Akamai management about the fact the shares are “significantly undervalued." That has resulted in a flurry of activity on the Street today, among which is a report from Credit Suisse’s Brad Zalnick. Zalnick raises his rating on the shares to Outperform from Market Perform, and hiking his price target to $75 from $55, writing that the Elliott entrance is “an unexpected catalyst that can unlock several paths to value." That could result in a “change in narrative,” writes Zalnick, namely moving people away from focusing on the “declining media segment” to instead focusing on the “real asset value — the optionality of the underlying network.” He thinks several companies could be interested in querying the company, perhaps up to $80 per share.
