Half-Time Report: The Best Performing Technology Dividend Stocks And Which Of Them Are Still Cheap

Technology dividend stocks with highest year-to-date performance originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Today I 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.

Here are the cheapest results in terms of forward price-to-earnings:
