For Investors Seeking Dividends Within A Growth Sector, Semi-Conductors May Be Well-Positioned To Deliver

 
A year of weak sales in the industry typically does lead to a strong year following. And some semiconductor companies pay dividends on their stocks—something that may appeal to income-seeking investors.
