Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Akamai Technologies as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, reasonable valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • AKAM's revenue growth trails the industry average of 20.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 7.8%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
  • Although AKAM's debt-to-equity ratio of 0.20 is very low, it is currently higher than that of the industry average. Along with this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 3.61, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 90.75% to $190.24 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, AKAMAI TECHNOLOGIES INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 19.28%.
  • The gross profit margin for AKAMAI TECHNOLOGIES INC is currently very high, coming in at 76.01%. Regardless of AKAM's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 13.18% trails the industry average.
