11 Technology Dividend Stocks with Accelerated Growth

Growth stocks are wonderful especially if they are at the beginning of their growth path. Growth normally creates shareholder value and if the company doesn’t need much money to finance the growth, you can benefit already within the early stage.

In order to find some growth opportunities from the technology sector with current dividend payments, I screened the technology sector by stocks with a recent earnings growth of more than ten percent (past five years). In order to catch up only those stocks with a gaining earnings growth, I observed only stocks with a quarter over quarter sales and earnings per share growth of more than fifteen percent. Exactly eleven companies fulfilled these criteria. Ten of them are recommended to buy.

Here are my favorite stocks:

1. Pegasystems (PEGA) has a market capitalization of $1.40 billion. The company employs 1,858 people, generates revenues of $416.68 million and has a net income of $10.11 million. The firm’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $27.91 million. Because of these figures, the EBITDA margin is 6.70 percent (operating margin 2.52 percent and the net profit margin finally 2.43 percent).

The total debt representing 0.00 percent of the company’s assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 0.00 percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 5.00 percent was realized. Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $0.26. Last fiscal year, the company paid $0.12 in form of dividends to shareholders.

Here are the price ratios of the company: The P/E ratio is 143.13, P/S ratio 3.39 and P/B ratio 6.75. Dividend Yield: 0.32 percent. The beta ratio is 1.09.

2. Intuit (INTU) has a market capitalization of $17.63 billion. The company employs 8,000 people, generates revenues of $3,851.00 million and has a net income of $634.00 million. The firm’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $1,232.00 million. Because of these figures, the EBITDA margin is 31.99 percent (operating margin 26.15 percent and the net profit margin finally 16.46 percent).

The total debt representing 19.55 percent of the company’s assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 38.19 percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 23.32 percent was realized. Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $2.18. Last fiscal year, the company paid $0.00 in form of dividends to shareholders.

Here are the price ratios of the company: The P/E ratio is 27.40, P/S ratio 4.55 and P/B ratio 6.82. Dividend Yield: 1.01 percent. The beta ratio is 0.78.

3. Quality Systems (QSII) has a market capitalization of $2.46 billion. The company employs 1,537 people, generates revenues of $353.36 million and has a net income of $61.61 million. The firm’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $108.74 million. Because of these figures, the EBITDA margin is 30.77 percent (operating margin 26.63 percent and the net profit margin finally 17.43 percent).

Take a closer look at the full table of technology stocks with accelerated growth. The average price to earnings ratio (P/E ratio) amounts to 27.98 and forward P/E ratio is 19.25. The dividend yield has a value of 2.14 percent. Price to book ratio is 5.54 and price to sales ratio 4.60. The operating margin amounts to 15.46 percent.
