Dividends4Life: Five High-Yield Dividend Stocks That Will Make You Love the Tech Sector

Tara Clarke writes: Investors looking for high-yield dividend stocks have previously eschewed the tech sector, as that's traditionally been a place to invest for growth. Instead of paying out extra cash to investors, tech high-fliers typically reinvest cash in research and development, mergers and acquisitions, and other classic "growth" strategies. That's why their earnings - and share prices - grow faster than average.

As tech companies mature and transition from their growth phase into a more stable period, they usually find themselves with more cash than they know what to do with. That's why a couple of years ago, tech dividend payouts picked up the pace. They jumped about 14% in 2012 - compared to the previous years' increases of about 10%. Now, here's a look at five high-yield dividend stocks in the tech sector: Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC), Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL), Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO), Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) and Microchip Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MCHP).
