These Booming AI Stocks Also Pay Dividends

While the returns of artificial intelligence (AI) stocks can be appealing, usually, there’s a peak. This is why today, we’re going to look at two AI stocks offering just a bit more: dividends.

These two AI stocks may be climbing in share price, but even after those returns stabilize, these companies will continue to hold up their end of the dividend bargain. So, let’s get into them right now.


Enghouse Systems (TSX:ENGH) has been down in the last year but is starting to see some improvements. This means there is little time to take advantage of the company’s 3.39% dividend yield as of this writing.

Enghouse has a robust net cash position, which provides financial stability and the flexibility to make strategic acquisitions. As of recent reports, the company’s net cash was near an all-time high of $226 million, supporting its capital-compounding acquisition strategy.

Enghouse continues to grow through strategic acquisitions, which bolster its market presence and expand its product offerings. Recent acquisitions include the assets of LifeSize Communications Inc. and VoicePort, LLC. These acquisitions are expected to enhance revenue and drive future growth.

Despite a recent dip in share price, Enghouse is considered undervalued by analysts, with estimates suggesting it is trading below its intrinsic value. This presents a potential buying opportunity for investors looking to capitalize on future appreciation. In fact, Enghouse has shown solid financial performance with significant profit growth. For instance, the fiscal second-quarter (Q2) profit jumped 59%, and revenue increased by 11% year over year, driven by successful acquisitions and operational efficiency.

Add in as well that Enghouse Systems has a reliable track record of paying dividends, which is attractive to income-focused investors. The company recently announced a quarterly dividend of $0.22 per share. Altogether, it’s a strong choice to consider.

Converge Technology Solutions

Then we have Converge Technology Solutions (TSX:CTS), with shares up 34% in the last year and a dividend yield of 1.37% as of writing. Converge Technology Solutions has shown a significant rise in investor sentiment and stock performance over recent months despite some volatility. Analysts have a positive outlook on the stock, with an average 12-month price target of $6.63, suggesting a potential upside of around 28.88% from its current price.

The company has been actively expanding its capabilities and market reach through strategic acquisitions. Recent acquisitions include Stone Technologies Group Limited and Newcomp Analytics Inc., which enhance Converge’s offerings in advanced analytics and cloud solutions.

Converge Technology Solutions has shown strong revenue growth, reporting $628.8 million in Q1 2024. Although there was a net loss, the company’s revenue exceeded analysts’ expectations, highlighting its capacity for growth and market expansion.

Plus, there has been notable insider buying, which often indicates confidence in the company’s future prospects. This can be a positive sign for potential investors, suggesting that those with the most insight into the company’s operations and future are optimistic about its performance.

Bottom line

Both Enghouse and Converge Technology Solutions offer compelling reasons for investors seeking growth and dividends. Enghouse Systems provides strong financial stability, strategic acquisitions, and consistent dividends, making it a reliable choice for both income and growth. 

Converge Technology Solutions, with its strategic growth through acquisitions, robust revenue growth, and positive analyst outlook, offers significant growth potential and the beginning of a dividend payout strategy. These attributes make both AI stocks attractive investments for those looking to balance growth and dividend income.
