Despite the fact that the company operates in the technology sector and the demand for the company’s products has historically been growing. The company’s management quarterly pleases shareholders with dividends. The forward yield on the company’s shares is 2%, which is comparable to the yield of the S&P 500 index.
Thus, despite the fact that the company is still developing, the company’s shareholders have a stable cash flow in the form of dividends on the company’s shares. In addition, the price of the company’s shares has recently increased quite a lot. However, at current prices, it is much less risky to invest in the US broad market index with the same dividend yield.
