9 Technology Dividend Stocks with Highest Short Float Ratio

Technology Dividend Stocks With Highest Short Float Ratio Researched By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. The technology sector is an interesting investment field due to high growth. At the stock markets are 909 companies linked to the sector with a total market capitalization of USD120.01 trillion. The average sector yield amounts to 3.04 percent and the average P/E ratio is 17.29. The best yielding stocks come from the telecom and carrier industries.

I screened the sector by dividend stocks with the highest amount of short selling stocks, measured by the short float ratio. The ratio shows how many stocks are shorted by investors. Companies with a high ratio of short float have a little upside potential if investors need to close their short position. Nine dividend stocks from the technology sector have a short float ratio of more than 10 percent and four are recommended to buy.

Here are my favorite stocks:
