How to Grab Superior Dividend Returns from Silicon Valley

As recently as 12 years ago, Silicon Valley's tech firms were notorious for being stingy with their dividend payouts. They could always be counted on to plow every last cent of profit back into growth or research or even buybacks, rather than paying their "partners," the shareholders.

Tech was an exciting sector, but income-hungry investors felt their money was treated better elsewhere. Remember, in the 1990s, yield was not the rare, endangered species it is in 2016.

But in 2016, tech has become an economy unto itself. What's more, where U.S. corporations are buried under nearly $30 trillion in debt, my five favorite American tech companies are flush, holding more than $504 billion in cold, hard cash between them. That's 30% of Corporate America's entire hoard.

With profit margins across this "convergence economy" topping a cushy 17.5%, tech is paying well across the board and treating shareholders like the partners they are. The mere median tech payout is well over 2.5%.

Tech is the new home of low-risk income on the markets, and there are nearly 100 dividend payers to choose from among the cream of the crop.

But let me narrow that selection down and show you one of the best...

The Only Investment You Need to Profit from Silicon Valley's Massive Dividend Hikes

Investors are still scared of Apple Inc.'s quarterly report, which contained the company's first earnings miss in 13 years. The stock is currently being punished by skittish analysts and investors, which is a tremendous opportunity in and of itself.

But it's what else these investors are running away from that I want to talk to you about today. It's a lot more than just the potential gains Apple has to offer.

These investors somehow completely missed Apple's massive profits: $10.52 billion, or $1.90 a share, and all in an "off" quarter.

With that truckload of cash, Tim Cook & Co. decided to give shareholders a consolation prize in the form of a stunning 10% dividend hike. It's still early yet, but it's likely that boost will be the tech sector's biggest of the quarter.

Here's the thing… Apple's not alone in this welcome tech trend of huge dividend hikes. So today I'm going to show you how you can buy the very best, biggest dividends in tech… for less than the cost of dinner for two at the Olive Garden.

This is a one-stop income machine that would be good in any market, but is an absolute must-have in this volatility...
