Highest Yielding Dividend Stocks From Nasdaq 100

Did you notice that the Nasdaq hit the 5,000 yesterday? 

Congratulations, what a number. The Nasdaq index compromises many growth stocks, more than the Dow Jones did. 

That's also one of the reasons why the index is well-know for technology and innovation firms. 

But the technology sector isn't particularly known for finding good dividends. Indeed, many of the most exciting technology stocks don't pay a dividend at all.


Assuming they're profitable (an assumption that doesn't always hold), technology companies often funnel their cash back into their business rather than pay shareholders a dividend.

You may also like my articles related to technology dividend stocks. There are a few great ideas in it. Cash, innovations and growth are main topics.

Today I would like to celebrate the 5,000 mark by highlighting some of the highest yielding stocks from the index.


Around half of the index members pay a dividend and of them has a high yield of more than 5 percent. Attached is a list of the highest yielding top 20 stocks from the Nasdaq 100.
