With the recent passage of the tax bill, stock buybacks and dividends are flowing like never before, and they make tech stocks more and more competitive with other sectors for income investors. The latest announcements of buybacks and dividends by networking giant Cisco Systems (CSCO), chip-equipment stalwart Applied Materials (AMAT) and its competitor, KLA-Tencor (KLAC), helped to power the Nasdaq Composite up 5.3% for the week, topping the roughly 4% return of the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Standard & Poor’s 500 index. There’s some debate over whether the Nasdaq is as “tech-heavy” as classically described, but it’s where Apple (AAPL) is listed, which is enough to call it the tech index.
Here are three stocks for dividend investors to consider. Each of these companies has a growing business, a meaningful dividend yield, and double-digit dividend growth.

In this era of low interest rates, many companies have borrowed heavily to help pay for dividends, share repurchases, and acquisitions. “For us, free cash flow is of the utmost importance when you think about how a company can pay the dividend over time,” says Mike Barclay, co-manager of the Columbia Dividend Income fund (LBSAX). This week’s column searched for large U.S. companies whose free cash-flow yields exceed their dividend yields.

As much as FireEye (FEYE) has for years been a force to reckon with in the cybersecurity vendor market, the one thing that had been lacking on its resume was that unlike rivals Cisco Systems (CSCO), Symantec (SYMC), and Palo Alto Networks (PANW), it had never turned a quarterly profit since going public back in 2013. Wall Street on average was expecting FireEye to post a loss per share of $0.01 in 4Q17. FireEye would have actually posted a GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) profit in 4Q17 had it not been for a one-off expense of $12.5 million that the company incurred toward legal settlement costs.

Networking technology vendor Arista Networks (ANET) this afternoon reported Q4 revenue and profit that topped analysts’ expectations, and offered a revenue forecast just slightly ahead of consensus for this quarter, sending its shares sharply lower in late trading. CEO Jayshree Ullal said the year had been a "market tipping point” as the company’s products gained "mainstream acceptance,” with the accumulation of more than 15 million "cumulative ports” of networking deployed in cloud computing. CFO Ita Brennan trumpeted "strong execution,” noting the revenue growth of 46% for the full year, and 70% profit growth. Arista stock is down $39.57, over 13%, at $268.39.
Shares of Cisco Systems (CSCO) are up $1.74, or 4%, at $43.83, retreating from their highest levels of last night’s session, after the company’s better-than-expected fiscal Q2 and outlook, and its increase in its capital returns program. The stock has gotten one upgrade today, that I can see, from Keith Snyder of CFRA Research, who raises his rating to Buy from Hold, and raises his price target to $48 from $39. Note that Cisco's arch-rival, Arista Networks (ANET), reports results this afternoon, after the closing bell.
