5 Technology Dividend Stocks With Better Dividends Than J&J, Procter And Exxon Mobil

The investing landscape has changed quite a bit for dividend investors. 

Those seeking high yields in equities had to traditionally invest in the financial, utilities, telecom, and consumer-staples sectors.

Today, investors can also find attractive yields in an industry traditionally devoid of dividend payers -- technology.

By the end of 2003, only 22 information-technology stocks paid a dividend. Today, that list is up to 185.

Of those companies, 87 are yielding at least 2.17%, the current dividend yield of the S&P 500. Some of the more popular names are paying out well over 3%.

Here are five technology stocks paying a dividend higher than Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble, and ExxonMobil.

These are the stocks I'm talking about...
