9 Solid Dividend Stocks From The Technology Sector | High Growth With Great Dividends

Technology Companies With High Growth And Positive Dividend Payments Researched By “long-term-investments.blogspot.com”. I often hear that technology stocks are high growth investments but they pay low dividends or no dividends. They sit on tons of cash and search for the next big IT revolution. If they don’t do this, they could lose their current competitive advantage and disappear from the market within the next ten years. We have seen this formation process at Nokia (NOK) or Research In Motion (RIM). If you think longer about the requirements and risks of the sector, investors should rewarded by a higher return or discount in the stock price to increase the margin of safety. 

I made a screen of all dividend stocks within the technology sector (from 879 technology companies pay 201 dividends). But who are the stocks with the highest growth at adequate risks? To get an answer, I selected only stocks with a market capitalization over USD 10 billion, a beta ratio of less than one as well as earnings per share growth of more than ten percent yearly. Nine really solid stocks remained. You find the list at the end of this post.


Here are my favorite stocks:
