Tech Stocks with 5% Dividend Potential

Posted by D4L | Saturday, September 01, 2012 | | 0 comments »

In a startling reversal, the high tech sector is now among the dividend paying stock groups with the most generous yields. Always flush with cash, companies such as Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) and Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) and their high tech brethren had previously thought that capital was better deployed in mergers and acquisitions or in research and development rather than providing shareholders with dividend income. Many of these high tech behemoths now pay dividend yields much higher than the average of around 2% for a member of the Standard & Poor's Index.

This rewards long term investors with patience (as does most investing). The share prices of the high tech sector fluctuate, along with others. The beta for Intel Corporation is 1.01, slightly above average. For Intersil Corporation it is 1.39, almost 40% higher than the market as a whole. Buying for the long term with dividend income factored in as a major component will yield to investors a very attractive total return for these high tech companies.
