Nasdaq 100 Watch List Summary

Below is the list of the highest yielding stocks that are components of the Nasdaq 100. This isn't an endorsement of the companies on the list. However, it is noted that the majority of the companies that pay a dividend are related to the chip sector. Clustering of companies in a specific industry may indicate that the entire sector is undervalued. If the companies have high dividend yields on a relative basis (compared to their historical high yields), then these companies may be worth considering despite the fact that they are not within 20% of the new low. Linear Technology (LLTC), ADP (ADP), and Paychex (PAYX) are Dividend Achievers as well as members of the Nasdaq 100 index.

Before pursuing any of these companies, be sure to verify the dividend history as well as the earnings capacity to pay the dividend (more commonly known as payout ratio).
