Taking its cue from chief information officers, Cisco Systems Inc. on Tuesday unveiled new networking software with baked-in security features, a move aimed at enabling businesses to connect far-flung workers to key enterprise applications – whether they’re in the office, a coffee shop or an airport lounge, Cisco officials said. To provide ready access to business tools and data, a growing number of CIOs are relying on a mix of public and private clouds, on-premise data centers, the internet and other networks, many of which they do not control, Mr. Goeckeler told CIO Journal.

There’s one clear question when it comes to shares of Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO). Is Cisco stock no different than Oracle (NYSE:ORCL) and IBM (NYSE:IBM), where modest earnings multiples are justified by near-zero growth expectations? Or is CSCO stock at the moment something closer to Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT): a giant capable of reinventing itself and accelerating growth?
The 3Q 2018 earnings reporting season is drawing to a close, and about 90% of the companies in the S&P 500 Index (SPX) have issued their reports, per Goldman Sachs. This means that share repurchases, or stock buybacks, are now set to resume in earnest, given that most of the S&P 500 is now exiting the blackout period imposed by the SEC on this activity during the reporting season. Through a combination of dividends and spending on stock buybacks, some companies have been offering very handsome returns of capital to investors.
The name of the game in investing is "total return." When you buy a stock, your total return comes from two places - price appreciation and dividends. For the longest time tech stocks were never mentioned hand-in-hand with dividend stocks. Pick up Amazon.com (AMZN) for $300, sell half at a thousand bucks a few years later, and you're sitting on free shares worth $1,600 each a year after that. That's the blueprint! Many tech stocks used to offer share splits as their prices rocketed higher. However many technology companies are maturing, and with breakneck growth in the rear-view mirror, and they need a different way to draw investors. The answer, for many, has been to start delivering dividends, paying investors for owning their shares. To be clear, tech stocks that pay dividends aren't done growing. The increased presence of technology in all aspects of human life means that there's still plenty of upside, even for Wall Street's biggest tech companies. To wit, old-guard blue chip Microsoft (MSFT) has surpassed Google parent Alphabet (GOOGL) and Facebook (FB) in market value this year, and it's neck-and-neck with Amazon. Here are 10 tech stocks that offer an ideal combination of dividends and growth potential. They might not be the flashiest names in the sector, but they deserve attention nonetheless.

If there's one thing investors have been able to count on during this long bull market, it's companies repurchasing record amounts of their own stock. Recent volatility notwithstanding, big stock buybacks are a trend that's expected to continue. "For the second half of 2018, indications are strong for increased corporate expenditures in both buybacks and dividends, with annual records for both," wrote Howard Silverblatt, Senior Index Analyst at S&P Dow Jones Indices, in a report summing up buyback activity through the first half of the year. "Buybacks appear to be on a roll, supporting stock price via more purchases and increasing earnings per share through lower share counts." Lower corporate tax rates and companies repatriating cash held overseas are helping fuel an acceleration in share repurchase programs, which were already going strong. Indeed, over the past five years, companies in Standard & Poor's 500-stock index bought back a stunning $2.82 trillion of their own stock, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices. Although it takes more than share repurchases to support stock prices, they sure do help - and investors generally love them. When it comes to returning cash to shareholders through stock buybacks, these are the most generous companies over the past half-decade.
