8/25 Seeking Alpha OTT Services By Apple And Verizon Won't Have A Big Impact On Akamai, Here Are The Numbers

Last week I saw two reports published by Wall Street analysts suggesting that Apple's (AAPL) still non existent live OTT service will mean a lot of revenue for CDN provider Akamai (AKAM). Of course neither of the reports gave out any numbers, provided any estimates of revenue or even showed the formula anyone can use to get a rough idea of what the business would be worth. These reports need to stop being so vague and provide real numbers considering it's easy to estimate the value of the business using very simple math, which I detail below. When it comes to the topic o...

8/20 Seeking Alpha Akamai Will Benefit From Cord Cutting

Earlier this month, Disney (DIS) set off a firestorm among the media stock when the company announced ESPN experienced modest subscriber losses during the quarter and gave a candid view of where technology is going over the next several years. Disney CEO, Bob Iger, even went as far as to say he can see a day when ESPN could be sold directly to customers in an "over the top" platform. This frank discussion by one of the most powerful media entertainment companies in the world caused a dramatic sell off across the industry. Investors and analysts feared cord cutting is the...

8/14 Seeking Alpha Bloomberg: Apple now aiming for 2016 Web TV service launch

After previously aiming for a fall launch, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is now hoping to bring its Web TV service to market in 2016, Bloomberg reports . The delay is blamed on slow moving licensing talks with TV networks such as CBS, NBC, and Fox, and the need for network capacity upgrades. Re/code previously reported Apple's service might not launch until 2016 or late 2015. More recently, BuzzFeed reported the service wouldn't be announced at Apple's September iPhone event; a new Apple TV set top is expected. Bloomberg's sources suggest Apple wants to charge ~$40/month for...

8/13 Seeking Alpha Court rules in Akamai's favor in Limelight suit; LLNW -9.8%

A federal appeals court (the CAFC) has reinstated a $45M infringement verdict against Limelight (NASDAQ:LLNW) in a suit filed by larger rival Akamai (AKAM +0.1% ) over the alleged infringement of a patent related to media content delivery. The ruling vacates a May decision from the CAFC declaring Limelight didn't directly infringe Akamai's patent. The Supreme Court ruled in 2014 Limelight couldn't be held responsible for inducing infringement by users. However, the CAFC states today Limelight's control over its users makes it responsible for any infringement that oc...

7/30 Forbes Akamai Q2 Earnings: Currency Headwinds Take Some Shine Off Otherwise Impressive Quarter

The company generated revenues of $541 million in Q2 2015, about 14% higher than the prior year quarter and in line with the company's guidance. However, unfavorable currency movements also had a detrimental effect on the company's revenues for the quarter. Ignoring the effect of currency headwinds, the company's overall revenues actually registered an 18% uptick for the quarter. Akamai's growth is driven by secular trends of increasing Internet content and traffic, as people increasingly take to the web for shopping, streaming videos, accessing social media, playing games ...
