“Multiple ad tech industry sources think Google is about to buy Akamai,” according to a report in Business Insider. “It’s mostly just a rumor.”

Akamai, which supplies the computer power that speeds delivery of Internet content, rose to as high as $27.35 in late trading, after closing up 2 cents to $23.37 in regular trading.
