As hard to believe as it is, summer 2021 will officially be in the rear view mirror soon and the third quarter is about to end. The question going forward is which path makes sense for total return growth investors? Investors have enjoyed seven straight months of gains as the stock market is massively overbought, not having experienced a 5% correction for almost a year. Despite the lousy jobs report last week, the Federal Reserve will begin the process of quantitative easing, possibly in November.
Investors with a longer-term perspective and a slightly higher tolerance for risk that focuses on total return may have the path to success, even with the potential for a sell-off. Strong, successful technology companies with in-demand products that pay significant and reliable dividends is a solid idea for the fourth quarter and into 2022.
We sifted through our 24/7 Wall St. research database for technology companies with a range of in-demand products or services that pay a reliable dividend. Five of them stood out and are all great ideas for investors with a higher tolerance for risk and a long-term investment horizon.
Many of these companies have dividend reinvestment plans, with which you can reinvest the dividends to buy more shares. This makes a lot of sense, especially given the potential for a large correction.
Although these stocks are rated Buy, it is important to remember that no analyst report should be used as the sole basis for any decision to buy or sell.
