  • Fall In Love With These Highest Yielding Dividend Stocks From Nasdaq 100

    Did you notice that the Nasdaq hit the 5,000 yesterday?

    Congratulations, what a number. The Nasdaq index compromises many growth stocks, more than the Dow Jones did.

    That's also one of the reasons why the index is well-know for technology and innovation firms.

    But the technology sector isn't particularly known for finding good dividends. Indeed, many of the most exciting technology stocks don't pay a dividend at all.

    Assuming they're profitable (an assumption that doesn't always hold), technology companies often funnel their cash back into their business rather than pay shareholders a dividend.

    You may also like my articles related to technology dividend stocks. There are a few great ideas in it. Cash, innovations and growth are main topics.

    Today I would like to celebrate the 5,000 mark by highlighting some of the highest yielding stocks from the index.

    Around half of the index members pay a dividend and of them has a high yield of more than 5 percent. Attached is a list of the highest yielding top 20 stocks from the Nasdaq 100.

    Here are my favorites in detail:

    Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $1.70. Last fiscal year, CA paid $1.00 in the form of dividends to shareholders.

  • Investment Gurus Love These 10 Stocks

    Recently I published an article about Warren Buffett's latest dividend stock buys and sells of the recent quarter.

    I'm ever surprised about his new investment. He bought Deere, a great company with high market share in the farmer's equipment segment, while I was selling it due to high debt loads and operational headwinds.

    You also may like my article about 10 stocks with the highest Share Buyback Program on the market.

    Today I like to show you what the other super investors like George Soros, David Tepper, Bill Ackman, Bruce Berkowitz or others bought during the latest quarter. Each of the attached stocks were bought at least four times by one of the 60+ super investors.

    It's a clear signal. They put money into the oil services industry. Drilling and exploration companies- Those are suffering mostly from the low oil price. Is it an anti-cyclic bet? What do you think; please share your thoughts by leaving a small comment.
