Baird analysts upgraded Akamai Technologies (NASDAQ:AKAM) to Outperform from Neutral, raising the price target to $135 from $128. The firm’s upgrade stems from optimism around Akamai’s expanding security business, which is anticipated to represent 50% of the company’s total revenue in 2024, up from 39% three years earlier.

Highlighting the current valuation’s significant discount compared to its historical five- and ten-year averages, the analysts see a compelling risk/reward scenario for investors. Despite the ongoing challenges in the delivery segment, the analysts believe this is already well accounted for in the market’s expectations, and see potential upside in the compute segment by 2025 and beyond, which currently holds low investor expectations.
