Technology Industry Research Report

Technology Industry Profile _ (edit/improve) The technology sector includes those market companies involved in the production or delivery of technological goods and services. Generally, this sector is focused on what is considered advanced technology or "high-tech," that is, computers and peripherals, semiconductors, software, IT services, telecommunications, home entertainment and biotechnology, to name a few. The technology sector is considered a leading sector for growth-based investment. Thus tech stocks typically pay less in dividends than more traditional companies. Instead tech companies tend to seek to attract investors interested in profiting from the increase in share price rather than from dividends, while re-investing profits that might go toward dividends toward the further growth of the company. This, though, has begun to change as more established high-tech companies have started to offer dividends. With the growth of the importance of technology in society, the technology sector has become a bellwether of the overall stock market and economy.
