If out in $1000 into a stock with a 5% yield, I would be getting $50 payout. If the company continues to pay the same amount but the stock price drops in half, the yield will go to 10% but I am still pulling the same $50 from my initial $1000 investment.

I'm not sure you have given enough consideration to the "if not" cases.
