If you just happen to be sitting on top of a few million shares of stock from the chip making giant Intel, then you are in for a treat on September 1. Intel's Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of 22.5 cents per share of the company's common stock. Only stockholders on record by August 7, 2013, will be eligible for the dividend.
The previous quarter has been fairly nice to tech shareholders with many of Silicon Valley's biggest residents declaring quarterly dividends. The list includes telecommunications giant AT&T declaring 49 cents per share of common stock, and Apple being the biggest by paying $3.05 per share of common stock. Unfortunately, I misplaced that extra million shares of Apple I had laying around, so I guess all of you wonderful readers out there will just have to put up with me for at least another quarter of the year.
