INTC Named 'Top Dividend Stock Of The Nasdaq 100' At Dividend Channel With 3.8% Yield

Intel Corp (INTC) has been named as the ''Top Dividend Stock of the Nasdaq 100'', according to Dividend Channel, which published its most recent ''DividendRank'' report. The report noted that among the components of the Nasdaq 100 index, INTC shares displayed both attractive valuation metrics and strong profitability metrics. For example, the recent INTC share price of $23.78 represents a price-to-book ratio of 2.2 and an annual dividend yield of 3.8% — by comparison, the average dividend paying stock in the Nasdaq 100 yields 2.2% and trades at a price-to-book ratio of 4.2. The report also cited the strong quarterly dividend history at Intel Corp, and favorable long-term multi-year growth rates in key fundamental data points.

The report stated, '' Dividend investors approaching investing from a value standpoint are generally most interested in researching the strongest most profitable companies, that also happen to be trading at an attractive valuation. That's what we aim to find using our proprietary DividendRank formula, which ranks the coverage universe based upon our various criteria for both profitability and valuation, to generate a list of the top most 'interesting' stocks, meant for investors as a source of ideas that merit further research.''

The tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 index tracks the hundred largest non-financial companies listed on the Nasdaq. The exclusion of financials sets the index apart, as does the inclusion of companies that are not US-based (the Dow Jones Industrial Average for instance only covers companies based in the United States).
