My 3 Favorite Technology Stocks from the Dividend Tech Potentials List
Posted by: Dividend (IP Logged)

Today I would like to go forward with my article serial about low leveraged stocks from several sectors with currently small dividend payouts. I will discover some of the greatest low leveraged technology stocks on the market that also have low dividend payout ratios.

My criteria are still a low dividend payout ratio of less than 20 percent as well as a debt-to-equity ratio under 0.5. In order to get only higher capitalized stocks, I decided to choose only those companies with a market cap of more than USD2 billion.

Fourteen shares fulfilled these criteria of which 11 have a buy or better rating.

Here are my favorite stocks from the Technology Dividend Potentials List:
