Facebook Is Too Expensive! These Technology Stocks Create a Better Shareholder Value

Everybody is talking about Facebook and the USD104 billion market valuation at revenues of nearly USD4 billion. But, what happens if Facebook’s growth slows before the company reaches the USD100 billion mark in revenues? You will never get the investment back.

If you like to invest in stocks with a higher degree of safeness, you should take a look at stocks from forgotten industries like the wireless communication industry. Certainly, the growth is not as high as the growth of social network companies or software stocks but they pay a much higher dividend and it helps you to hedge your investment. What alternatives are available within the dividend category?

However, I made a screen of the best yielding U.S.-based technology stocks with a low P/E ratio (below 15) and a market capitalization over USD300 million. Below the results are many semiconductor stocks. If you include stocks from abroad, you find a lot of stocks with high yields from the telecom services industry. Eighteen stocks remained of which one has a yield over 3 percent and the same number of stocks are recommended to buy.

Here are my favorite stocks:
