Large Capitalized Technology Dividend Stocks With Highest Yield Researched By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. It’s very important to know what yields are traded within a sector or industry in order to compare risks and premiums. I made a screen of the best yielding large capitalized technology stocks. 82 companies from the technology sector have a market capitalization over USD 10 billion and 56 of them pay dividends. Below, I listed all stocks with a yield over four percent.

Two industries are strongly represented: The domestic and foreign telecom services industry. In my view, these industries offer values for investors but for technology stocks, there are better investments with higher growth. The big burdens of telecom services stocks are huge infrastructure investments due to higher data volumes and low pricing power due to legislation rules and competitive forces. If you want to make big money within the technology sector, you should look at IT stocks and software companies.

Here are my favorite stocks:
