The following video is part of our "Better Dividend Buy" series. In this edition, senior tech analyst Eric Bleeker and tech and media analyst Andrew Tonner weigh two of the biggest champions of the technology industry: Intel and Microsoft. While both are strong payers yielding at least 3%, Eric thinks Intel is the stronger of the two choices, because, as a hardware player, it can profit from PC growth areas where Microsoft's software is heavily pirated. With China now the world's largest PC market, until Microsoft can better combat 95% piracy rates, its top line will trail Intel's growth.
