Seagate Technology , a hard disk drive maker, recently reinstated its dividend after canceling it during the financial crisis a few years ago. This year, that dividend has climbed from $0.25 per share per quarter to $0.38 (with the final one being given early to dodge tax increases from the fiscal cliff), but even that is still only 20% of the company's profits. In this video, Motley Fool tech analyst Eric Bleeker discusses why he believes that dividend is still headed further up.

While Seagate Technology pays a significant and growing dividend, a global slowdown in demand for digital memory storage has begun to put pressure on margins.
