Technology Dividend Stocks with High Return on Investments and Big Operating Margins Researched by Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. Technology stocks are characterized by high growth, high margins and low dividends. They normally pay low dividends because they want to finance new technologies with high growth potential. Many of the big IT companies serve billions of cash but they don’t know where to invest it.

I screened the technology sector by the most profitable stocks (stocks with an operating margin and return on investment over 20 percent) with a dividend yield over 3 percent. Exactly fourteen companies fulfilled these criteria. Most of the results come from the semiconductor or communication industry. Four stocks have a double-digit yield and five are recommended to buy or have a strong buy rating.

Here are my favorite stocks:

1. China Mobile (CHL) has a market capitalization of $209.88 billion. The company employs 170,019 people, generates revenues of $77,045.25 million and has a net income of $19,057.48 million. The firm’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $37,638.30 million. Because of these figures, the EBITDA margin is 48.85 percent (operating margin 31.07 percent and the net profit margin finally 24.74 percent).

The total debt representing 1.16 percent of the company’s assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 1.74 percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 22.10 percent was realized. Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $4.82. Last fiscal year, the company paid $2.06 in form of dividends to shareholders.

Here are the price ratios of the company: The P/E ratio is 10.86, P/S ratio 2.75 and P/B ratio 2.31. Dividend Yield: 3.87 percent. The beta ratio is 0.50.
