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.
