I still don't how a person could safely yield 4% in this economic environment.

By my count, over 100 stocks (C-corps, MLP units and REIT shares) from David Fish's list of Dividend Champions, Challengers and Contenders, are yielding 4% or more. And then there are preferred stock....

I haven't run any analysis to determine how many of these would be good candidates for long term dividend sustainability and growth. But there are quite a few here to analyze.

However, I completely agree....the pickins are much thinner today than they have been in the past!
