SA had a recent article suggesting that investors consider older tech companies as income substitutes for utilities. Some of their suggestions were CSCO, IBM, STX. I needed an additional stock, thought about buying FE, but the data cited by Steelpony and BruceM discouraged me from buying FE. I did looked at some old tech companies and chose NTAP (Network Appliance) which pays about 4.4%. I already own IBM and STX.
I didn’t see that article, but over the last few years I have added periodically to my “old tech” holdings of CSCO and INTC. Both are solid dividend growth stocks, and priced much lower in terms of P/E, etc. when compared to the “tech darlings” (AMZN, FB, Etc.). Have lower “buy” orders for both right now.
