I do not have the names of the 22 companies, but I will attempt to find them.

One I know of: Radio Shack. The divi was well in excess of their earnings.

As I have commented here before, a red flag for me is any company who is paying out a high percentage of earnings in dividends. There are a surprising number of companies in this situation.
