    U.S. equities are pausing for breath on Thursday, amid nagging concerns about the fate of U.S.-China trade talks and ongoing woes for Boeing (NYSE:BA) after President Trump grounded the 787 MAX -- becoming the last country to do so after two fatal crashes of similar circumstances in the last five months.The drag on the Dow Jones Industrial Average, of which Boeing is a component, means that index hasn't gone anywhere in over a month.

    7 Tech Stocks That Pay Dividends

    {Editor's note: This story was previously published in June 2018. It has since been updated and republished.}When investors think of dividend stocks, tech names don't usually come to mind. Technology is a growth industry, and investors generally prefer that any idle, excess cash gets put back into the business. That's the best ROI opportunity.It's a misnomer to think that the technology sector can't -- or doesn't -- have a few dividend stocks to choose from, though. It does, with several of these names reshaping their business models to drive the recurring revenue that lends itself to dividend payouts. Software-as-a-Service and access to cloud-based storage are a couple of platforms that are billed on a monthly or quarterly basis.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Top Stocks to Buy From Goldman Sachs' Secret Portfolio To that end, here's a run-down of seven tech stocks that pay a dividend worth collecting. In all seven cases, the payout is pretty well protected, and apt to grow. Best of all, these stocks still offer strong growth prospects that the tech sector is so well known for. Tech Dividend Stocks: AVX Corporation (AVX)Dividend Yield: 2.6%AVX Corporation (NYSE:AVX) isn't a name on too many investors' radars, and for good reason. With a market cap of a modest $3 billion, it just doesn't have the publicity firepower many of its tech brethren have.But maybe it should.AVX makes capacitors, transistors, sensors, connectors and more … all the things you don't think about that get attached to, and put on, a circuit board that make your electronic devices work. This is the lifeblood of technology. Without companies like AVX, you wouldn't have mobile phones, televisions or wireless internet.The nature of its business lines also lends itself to paying a reliable dividend. It manufactures so many kinds of things for so many electronics outfits that it always has at least some customers to sell to. The yield of 2.6% may not be jaw-dropping, but considering the current payout of 46-cents-per-share was only 28-cents-per-share in 2013, what AVX lacks in yield it makes up for in dividend growth. Tech Dividend Stocks: Cisco (CSCO)Dividend Yield: 2.7%Yes, the iconic king of the networking world, Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO), is also a respectable dividend payer. Granted, the yield of 2.7% isn't sky-high. It's also a relatively new idea for the old company -- Cisco only started paying any kind of dividend in 2011. Cisco takes its cash-flow-sharing pretty seriously though, and more than that, it is shifting its business model in a way that's geared for paying a dividend.How's that? If you've listened carefully to the company's rhetoric regarding recent quarterly reports, the phrase "recurring revenue" has been increasingly used. Rather than mere one-time sales of switches and routers, Cisco is selling subscription-based access to cybersecurity and traffic-management platforms. * 7 Top Stocks to Buy From Goldman Sachs' Secret Portfolio Recurring income is reliable (once a subscriber signs on, it tends to stay on board), it's easy for Cisco to commit to a healthy dividend payout. Tech Dividend Stocks: Infosys (INFY)Dividend Yield: 3.1%You name it, Infosys (NYSE:INFY) does it … or at least it has a hand in it.In simplest terms, India-based technology company Infosys is a technology consulting and service provider. From bloackchain to "big data" to business transformation, Infosys can bring a lot to the table of a company that may not even know where to begin.Yes, it's another business model that's well suited for dividend payments, in that much of its work is also recurring. More than that though, it's just a great company.While you hear a great deal about the incredible ways companies like Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) are changing the world through the use of technology, the fact of the matter is, most organizations have neither the ability or the desire to create their own technology-based solutions. They're more than content to lean on the likes of Infosys, and pay handsomely for the work it does. Tech Dividend Stocks: Nokia (NOK)Dividend Yield: 3.9%Nokia's (NYSE:NOK) dividend yield of 4.1% is quite noteworthy.You likely know the company as the maker of mobile phones. But, truth be told, that's the least of what it does. It got out of the business altogether a few years ago, selling the name to Microsoft. And, although it waded back into smartphone waters in 2017, it's still not a name people take seriously in a market dominated by the iPhone and Samsung's Galaxy lineup.So what exactly has Finland-based Nokia Oyj been doing all this time to stay afloat? Building industry-specific communications solutions. For instance, it has created an entire communications framework that makes smart cities a reality. Nokia is also taking great strides in the healthcare arena, making the mobile monitoring of patients a snap. * 7 Top Stocks to Buy From Goldman Sachs' Secret Portfolio Investors don't see much of the work the company is doing, but that doesn't mean work's not being done. Tech Dividend Stocks: Qualcomm (QCOM)Dividend Yield: 4.6%Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) is another former big name in the smartphone business that's since been shoved to the back of the line thanks to Samsung and Apple. But, much like Nokia, Qualcomm has found new life in -- and new opportunity in -- making the chips that power smartphones and other wireless devices. Ever heard of the Snapdragon processor? That's Qualcomm's breadwinner.That's certainly not going to be a laurel the company can rest on forever though, so it's thinking ahead. Its next-generation chipsets will be able to handle virtual reality and augmented reality, which (one way or another) is a big part of the future.Whatever the case, with a dividend yield of 4.6%, QCOM shares have something to offer fans of income that also might want to take a shot at a little bit of growth. Tech Dividend Stocks: Seagate (STX)Dividend Yield: 5.6%Seagate (NASDAQ:STX) isn't a name that needs much on the way of introduction, or explanation. It's one of only two major names in the hard disk drive (HDD) market, and although the advent of the solid state drive (SSD) has made things tough on Seagate by allowing newcomers into the disk-drive market, the company is holding up just fine. In short, it can afford to fund its current dividend yield of 5.6%.But still, aren't old-school disk drives a thing of the past, with an expiration date? Not just yet. The company's earnings per share over the last 12 months was $5.75. * 7 Top Stocks to Buy From Goldman Sachs' Secret Portfolio As it turns out, traditional hard disk drives are better suited for use in a data center setting, and we're still in the early innings of a data center buildout. Tech Dividend Stocks: Iron Mountain (IRM)Dividend Yield: 7.1%Last but not least, add Iron Mountain (NYSE:IRM) to your list of tech dividend stocks to consider.Contrary to popular belief, the rise of computers in the 90's didn't pave the way for a paperless world. If anything, computers allowed society to create even more paper documents, many of which required signatures, which in turn meant they had to be stored. Even with the recent proliferation of e-signatures, many printed documents still need to be stored.Enter Iron Mountain.Iron Mountain stores the mountain of paperwork organizations are required to retain for record-keeping purposes, but don't have the room to store on site. Its customers pay "rent" to the company for holding onto those documents, spurring the recurring revenue that makes for a reliable dividend. Its current yield? An impressive 7.1%.The truly-paperless era is finally upon us, suggesting a threat to Iron Mountain's business model. Fear not, though. The company is quickly learning the nuances of digital information, helping clients navigate the laws and logistics of the new era of record-keeping. That's how it qualifies as a technology name.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities. You can follow him on Twitter, at @jbrumley.

  • Why Seagate Stock Could Be a Yield Trap

    Why Seagate Stock Could Be a Yield Trap

    The fundamental case for hard drive manufacturer Seagate Technology plc (NASDAQ:STX) seems pretty easy to make. STX stock is cheap, trading at 1en times analysts' average fiscal 2019 earnings-per-share estimates. And Seagate stock also offers one of the best dividends of any S&P 500 stock, yielding 5.45% at the moment.Source: Shutterstock The problem is that a cheap valuation, and particularly, a high dividend aren't enough on their own to guarantee that a stock will perform well. Investors in stocks like General Electric (NYSE:GE), Owens & Minor (NYSE:OMI), Anheuser-Busch InBev (NYSE:BUD) and Kraft Heinz (NASDAQ:KHC) have learned that lesson lately. And there are reasons why STX stock looks so cheap and why its dividend yield is so high. * 5 Airline Stocks In Serious Trouble The Case Against STX StockFrom a broad standpoint, the main concern about STX stock at this point is reasonably clear: Seagate's business is declining. Analysts' consensus fiscal 2019 revenue estimate suggests that, on average, by the end of this year, its sales will have declined over 5% per year for seven years. Earnings - again, assuming the Street is correct - will follow a similar (and slightly worse) trajectory. The-top-and-bottom-line declines factor in the impact of acquisitions (including Seagate's purchases of Xyratex and a flash business from Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO)).InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsHard disk drive (HDD) sales have been pressured by continuous changes, such as lower PC unit sales and a shift away from DVRs (digital video recorders). In general, selling HDDs is tough: as Seagate itself points out in its filings, HDD prices generally decline over time.Ten times earnings seems "cheap." A 5.4% dividend yield looks attractive. But dividends don't drive valuations, and STX will have to cut that distribution at some point because its business is declining. Seagate admittedly doesn't look to be in danger on that front just yet, since its payout ratio still sits at a reasonable 55%.That said, Seagate hasn't raised its dividend since 2016. And it only takes one downcycle - or a few more years of declining profits - for that payout ratio to rise, potentially putting the dividend at risk. The Case for Seagate StockTo be fair, Seagate's current outlook isn't quite that simple. Of late, STX has shown some signs of life. HDDs provide memory to outsourced cloud providers, at a cheaper cost than flash/NAND products from rivals like Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU). And STX's revenue rose 4% in fiscal 2018, while its prices have rebounded, with its ASPs (average selling prices) jumping to $69 in FY18 from $61 two years prior.As a result, Seagate was able to drive adjusted EPS of $5.51 last year. And while the company is unlikely to repeat that performance this year, some external factors are weighing on its profits. Specifically, there's been a clear slowdown among cloud providers, who have overbuilt their inventories, as fellow memory provider Western Digital (NASDAQ:WDC) has pointed out. Both Western and Seagate expect that headwind to abate in the second half of calendar 2019, when cloud providers should begin growing again.And while the shares of MU and WDC have been hammered - down 38% and 52% from their 52-week highs, respectively - STX has performed a bit better. It's down just 26% from its highs, thanks to a nice rally from its December lows.That relative strength makes some sense. STX's HDD business might be growing more slowly than NAND and DRAM memory businesses. But in terms of demand and particularly pricing, the HDD business is more stable. That's a key reason why Seagate stock hasn't been pressured to the same extent as other memory stocks.And given the low valuation of STX stock, stable is good enough. If strengthening cloud demand offsets pressure in PCs and elsewhere, cost-cutting and new business initiatives (including the company's small flash business) can drive modest growth. Something like 12-13 times $5 of EPS by FY21 gets STX stock over $60. Including dividends, that suggests annual returns of 20%. What to Watch ForThere are a couple of near-term problems with the bull case on Seagate stock, however. The first is - perhaps oddly - NAND pricing. Plunges in NAND have pressured other stocks, but they also create a risk for Seagate's business. NAND performs better than HDDs, but HDDs have kept some market share due to their markedly lower upfront cost.As a result, multiple analysts have worried that HDDs could be "cannibalized" by cheaper NAND. Seagate CEO Dave Mosley was asked directly about that potential trend at a recent conference and admitted that a number of STX's products could be negatively impacted.The second problem is that even the "cheap" multiple of STX stock leaves little room for error. Seagate already is taking cost out of its business this year, giving it less room to do so going forward. Declining prices will consistently pressure STX stock and make its execution paramount.And so ten times earnings might seem cheap , but for STX stock, it's really not. The forward price/earnings multiples of STX stock have stayed mostly in the single-digits for the past few years. Analysts don;t expect STX to grow much in fiscal 2020, and they don't expect STX stock to rise much, either. Analysts'average price target on STX stock (a bit over $43) actually is below the current STX stock price of $45.60.I do see value in the memory space, but I'm not sure that Seagate provides value. Micron stock still seems attractive, as I wrote in January, for reasons that go beyond the fact that it is "cheaper" on an earnings basis. WDC's case is weaker, but it could attract value-seekers as well.For Seagate, however, the problem is relatively simple. It's in a really tough business. It's not a business that is going to be valued at 20 times or even 15 times earnings at any point other than the bottom of the cycle. If STX is being too optimistic about the second half of the year, Seagate actually could be closer to a cyclical top. And that would spell disaster for STX stock.As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned.

The listing of the world's second-largest maker of NAND flash memory chips, which a Bain-led consortium bought for $18 billion last year, could be Japan's biggest IPO this year. It would also mark a swift exit by Bain - the firm had previously flagged it was looking for an IPO within three years.
