The name of the game in investing is “total return.” When you buy a stock, your total return comes from two places – price appreciation and dividends. For the longest time tech stocks were never mentioned hand-in-hand with dividend stocks. Pick up Amazon.com (AMZN) for $300, sell half at a thousand bucks a few years later, and you’re sitting on free shares worth $1,600 each a year after that. That’s the blueprint!

Many tech stocks used to offer share splits as their prices rocketed higher.

The answer, for many, has been to start delivering dividends, paying investors for owning their shares.

To be clear, tech stocks that pay dividends aren’t done growing. The increased presence of technology in all aspects of human life means that there’s still plenty of upside, even for Wall Street’s biggest tech companies. To wit, old-guard blue chip Microsoft (MSFT) has surpassed Google parent Alphabet (GOOGL) and Facebook (FB) in market value this year, and it’s neck-and-neck with Amazon.

Here are 10 tech stocks that offer an ideal combination of dividends and growth potential. They might not be the flashiest names in the sector, but they deserve attention nonetheless.
