3 Technology Dividend Bargains with Highest Year-to-Date Performance

Today I would like to continue my monthly screen serial with technology stocks. I screened the technology capital sector by dividend stocks with the highest year-to-date stock performance.

The 20 most successful companies have realized a performance between 192.46 percent and 48.71 percent. You could make real money if you have had the right technology ideas but the risk is also very high. Most of the results are small caps with a market capitalization below USD1 billion. The average capital gain was 79.15 percent. Despite the strong stock price hike, 1 of them still have a buy or better rating.
