4 Rising High-Yield Dividend Stocks

STX Dividend Yield Chart STX Dividend Yield data by YCharts

Seagate Technology (STX - Get Report)

Background: Seagate Technology makes hard-disk drives for enterprise storage, client compute and client non-compute market applications worldwide.

52-Week Range: $18.14 to $35.71

Price to Book: 3.5

Earnings Payout Percentage: 13%

TheStreet's Kate Stalter writes about Seagate in Rules of the Game: The Roaring Gainers of 2012, Part II .

For under $80 each delivered to my door, I just received a few 750 GB Seagate hybrid drives. Part SSD (solid state drive) and part spinning disk, Seagate produces a very compelling product. Seagate's many compelling consumer and enterprise products are the reason why I have written many times about why you want to be long this storage leader.

Seagate currently pays $1.52 per share in dividends for a yield of 4.8%. Last month Seagate raised their dividend once again from 32 cents a share to 38 cents.

In the last month, the stock performed well with a 7.3% increase. After dipping below $25 a share in late November, the shares have aggressively moved higher, with two gaps higher along the way. The speed the shares have appreciated gives me pause because I don't like to chase prices.
