From the Fool if you give them your e-mail address for one of their teasers.
With today's yields from Yahoo...

XOM, 2.5%
JNJ, 3.4%
PEP, 3.1%
PG, 3.3
WMT 2.2%
They each have what we Fools like to call a "moat," that is, a competitive advantage that allows them to consistently earn above-average returns. Their inclusion on the Dividend Aristocrat list shows their consistent dedication to returning cash to investors. And while it's tough to find businesses of this quality at bargain-basement prices, all trade at attractive valuations.

2 High Div:
T 5.10%
NYB: 7.4% If you want dividend growth, you may want to look elsewhere -- New York Community Bancorp hasn't raised its dividend since 2005

Up and Comers
GHL 3.7% (GreenHill - investment bank)
OMI 3.0% Owens & Minor is a distributor of medical and surgical equipment, as well as a provider of outsourced logistics and inventory management services...Between 2000 and 2011, it grew earnings per share 187%. And the dividend? Owens & Minor has raised its dividend every year since 1997 and has more than doubled its payout since 2006.

They could all yield another 0.2% in a few days ;-)
