Looking for Dividends? These 3 Tech Stocks Are Great Buys

Looking for investment income? Focusing on yield alone means you’ll miss out on lots of quality companies that pay a smaller dividend, but are still growing and could increase the payout in the future. Looking for companies that check both boxes — dividend payment and growth — can create a powerful compound growth effect over the long term.

Three companies our Fool.com contributors think meet these criteria are Applied Materials (NASDAQ:AMAT), Dolby Laboratories (NYSE:DLB), and Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO).

5 Turnaround Stocks That Are Screaming Buys

It’s been a topsy-turvy year for Wall Street, with the benchmark S&P 500 setting records for the fastest bear market decline in history, as well as the quickest rebound to fresh highs.

Growth and value have also diverged remarkably this year. Growth stocks in the tech sector have been virtually unstoppable, whereas value stocks in most sectors and industries have struggled. The thing is, value stocks have a history of outperforming during periods of economic expansion, and it looks as if a new bull market is just getting started.

With valuations depressed, the following five turnaround stocks are now screaming buys.

Despite what you might think, pharmacy chains are big-money business, and Walgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ:WBA) looks like one heck of a steal at a little north of 7 times Wall Street’s profit consensus for 2021.

Forget Snowflake, These 3 Tech Stocks Are Better Buys Right Now

Snowflake (NYSE:SNOW), a cloud data company, has received a lot of attention from investors lately, following its mid-September IPO. Investors have taken an interest in this tech stock because of its 133% revenue growth in the first half of this year, and the fact that the company believes it has a massive $81 billion total addressable market in the cloud data space. 

But despite Snowflake’s potential, there are a handful of other tech stocks that could be better long-term investments. To help you find a few, we asked three Motley Fool contributors for alternative Snowflake investments.

Big Tech stocks are buys on any negative antitrust news, Jim Cramer says

Big Tech stocks barely flinched one day after members of Congress recommended parts of their underlying companies be broken up, but investors should be ready to buy if the stocks dip in the future, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Wednesday.

“The time these Big Tech stocks get hit by some bad headlines from the House Judiciary Committee is the time you have to buy them,” the “Mad Money” host said. “Regardless of who wins the White House next month, they’re not gonna roll back 40 years of antitrust.”

The comments come on the heels of a Democratic congressional staff report out Tuesday that called for updates to the nation’s antitrust laws and to shake up operations of the largest U.S. technology corporations. The report charges Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Alphabet subsidiary Google with having monopoly power.

Facebook was the only one of the three stocks to fall in Wednesday’s session, slipping

Facebook is a social network monopoly that buys, copies or kills competitors, antitrust committee finds

  • The House Antitrust Subcommittee determined Facebook wields monopoly powers in social network and has maintained its position by acquiring, copying or killing its competitors, according to a report released by the subcommittee on Tuesday. 
  • The report describes an exchange in which Mark Zuckerberg suggested to Instagram Co-founder Kevin Systrom that “refusing to enter into a partnership with Facebook, including an acquisition, would have consequences for Instagram.”

Looking to Invest in Tech Stocks? 3 Top Buys for October

Software and cloud computing services have been all the rage this year as organizations have shifted to remote digital-based operations because of COVID-19. Tech hardware has been much more of a mixed bag. Some companies reliant on smartphone and auto sales haven’t fared so well, while others that supply parts for networking and data centers have been off to the races. 

Headed into the final quarter of 2020, some of this year’s biggest winners are showing signs of continuing their run, while other not-so-fortunate companies are predicting a rebound in 2021.
