The Best Technology Dividend Growth Picks Now!

As dividend growth investor, you have a large field to decide where to put your money.

Recently, I’ve introduced a few dividend growth picks from the consumer goods sector with the highest dividend yields. 

Today I would like to continue with stocks from the technology sector.

The tech sector was no good field in the past to search for long-term dividend growers. Only old techs like IBM, Oracle, or Microsoft have paid dividends for a decade and grown them over the same period.

The reason was also simple. Technology offers the opportunity to benefit from game changers, companies that develop a new system that became a new standard.

However, today, there are 17 higher capitalized stocks with a consecutive dividend growth history of more than 10 years. Attached, you can find a full list of the results.


These are the top picks in detail...
