The Vetr crowd on Thursday downgraded its rating for Akamai Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AKAM) from 4.5 stars (Strong Buy), issued two days ago, to 4 stars (Buy). Crowd sentiment at the time the downgrade was still unanimously positive, with 100 percent of Vetr user ratings bullish.

Akamai received the downgrade after experiencing a short-lived rise and fall in share price over the course of the market's return from the Labor Day weekend. While it has since returned close to the $47 handle, it was trading at following an unconfined M&A rumor on the cloud network company, the post-break dip might be seen as a correction on the movement created by the rumor.

Akamai finished trading on Thursday slightly down on the day at $46.80.
