This Tech Pick Popped for RS
Allison Thacker of RS Funds thinks content delivery network firm Akamai has what it takes to succeed.
Ryan Leggio: In the energy or the technology areas, any names that pop out in particular, that you and your team are really excited about?
Allison Thacker: An example of a name would be Akamai, which we have historically over the last few years owned in our mid-cap fund. We really like the company because they had a dominant position in the content delivery network. Basically as you are using media and software over the Internet, a lot of the time to keep the packet flow consistent, you need to use a content delivery accelerator, and that is what Akamai does.
