Technology Sector Stocks

Technology companies design and manufacture primarily computer and communication products for consumers and businesses. These products include software, computer parts, and telecom services, among other products. Technology companies are generally focused in their products, and may offer only one primary product. Technology companies offer dividend yields that are above-average when compared with the wider market, largely because of the high-yielding telecom plays within the sector.
