So far, 2023 has been a great year to own the biggest technology stocks—but little else. The Nasdaq 100 is up roughly 38 percent year-to-date. And the 7 stocks that dominate it have lifted the S&P 500 by 15 percent. That’s led some in the media to proclaim a new bull market. Dividend paying stocks, however, continue to lag, with the iShares Select Dividend ETF (NYSE: DVY) and Dow Jones Utility Average underwater by close to -5 percent and the S&P 500 Telecoms lower by around -6 percent counting dividends.
