NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Akamai Technologies (Nasdaq: AKAM) hit a new 52-week high Thursday as it is currently trading at $39.20, above its previous 52-week high of $39.14 with 1.7 million shares traded as of 12:20 p.m. ET. Average volume has been 2.8 million shares over the past 30 days.

Akamai has a market cap of $6.68 billion and is part of the technology sector and internet industry. Shares are up 16.7% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday.

Akamai Technologies, Inc. provides content delivery and cloud infrastructure services for accelerating and improving applications over the Internet in the United States and internationally. The company has a P/E ratio of 36.6, above the average internet industry P/E ratio of 36.2 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates Akamai as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust 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 these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income. You can view the full Akamai Ratings Report.
