Off the Charts: High Tech, High Dividends

The information technology sector, which once disdained paying dividends to shareholders, now pays more dividends than any other sector in the Standard & Poor’s 500. The charts show the relative standing of the three sectors — technology, financials and consumer staples — that have led the Standard & Poor’s 500 in dividend payments in at least one of the last nine years, as well as the dividend yield on each of the five largest companies in each sector at the end of 2012.
