Technology Stocks With High Growth and High Yield

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the not too recent past, when people thought of technology stocks they were mainly focused on high growth. However, as technology has evolved and become more mainstream, so to have technology stocks. Today there are many technology stocks that are paying dividends, but best of all, not at the sacrifice of potential growth. This article looks at five technology stocks with yields equivalent to or greater than the 30-year treasury bond, that offer above-average expected future growth while simultaneously available at very attractive valuations.


The following table summarizes five technology stocks with yields equivalent to or greater than the 30-year treasury bond that appear to be attractively valued, and lists them in order of Estimated Total Return from highest to lowest. From left to right, the table shows the company's stock symbol and name. Next, two valuation metrics are listed side-by-side, the historical normal PE ratio followed by the current PE ratio for perspective. Then the company's Estimated EPS growth, five-year estimated annual total return is shown next, and then the current dividend yield.

A Closer Look at the Past and the Future Potential

Since a picture is worth 1,000 words, we'll take a closer look at the past performance and future potential of each of our five candidates through the lens of F.A.S.T. Graphs™.

Earnings Determine Market Price: The following earnings and price correlated historical graphs clearly illustrates the importance of earnings. The Earnings Growth Rate Line or True Worth™ Line (orange line with white triangles) is correlated with the historical stock price line. On graph after graph the lines will move in tandem. If the stock price strays away from the earnings line (over or under), inevitably it will come back to earnings. The historical normal PE ratio line (dark blue line with*) depicts a PE ratio that the market has historically applied.

The orange True Worth™ line and the blue normal PE ratio line provide perspectives on valuation. The orange line reflects the fair value of each company's earnings relative to its growth rate achievement, and the blue line reflects how the market has traditionally valued the company's stock relative to its fair value. The blue line represents a trimmed historical normal PE ratio (the highest and lowest PEs are trimmed). These lines should be viewed as barometers or aids for ascertaining sound buy, sell or hold decisions. Rather than seen as absolutes, they should be seen as guides to better thinking.

Summary and Conclusions

Generally speaking, technology stocks have recently been weak relative to the overall markets. On the other hand, many are reporting solid earnings and expected to continue to grow at above-average rates over the foreseeable future. The five companies featured in this article appear to represent investments where investors can have their cake and eat it too. Each of these companies are trading at valuations low by historical standards, and at PE ratios that are equal to or below their expected future earnings growth rates. Therefore, investors willing to take on a little risk in order to have it all, growth, value and high income might want to look further into each of these interesting technology investment opportunities. As always, we recommend you conduct your own due diligence.
