Looking for Income? Technology Stocks May Be an Option
A Growing Number of Technology Companies Are Paying Dividends

Technology stocks have long been thought of as investments into the potential growth of a company and less as an investment for those seeking income. However, this thinking is changing as a growing number of technology companies are paying dividends. The percentage of MSCI U.S. technology stocks paying dividends has nearly tripled during the past 15 years, while emerging market and EAFE technology stocks have shown a similar trend. More dividend-paying technology stocks could provide more investment options to those seeking income in a low-yield world.
