i'm not sure it will be possible to cover $5K per month on a nest egg of $250K. that requires something like a 24% yield ($60K per year). but here are a few high dividend payers in my portfolio...all of which have fairly high risk (yields are based on what i've been paid recently):AFR 9.1% reit that owns bank branches and office buildings. FFO doesn't cover their div.FNB 5.7% bank out of pittsburgh, they've been on mergent's dividend achiever's list for years.NFI 19% subprime mortgage lender. they are off their all-time price high by about 60%. (i've bought between $25 and $30).AINV 9.5% BDC, steady and growing dividendALD 7.6% BDC, steady and growing dividendACAS 9% BDC, steady and growing dividend. all BDCs have some element of trusting management to find good deals and not screw too bad on ones that don't work out as well.BPL 6.9% MLP pipelineFDG 11.1% canadian coal trust that produces coal used by steel companies FRO 16% oil tanker/shipping companyPCU 14.1% peruivian copper miner. copper has gone up in price massively over the past 2 years. political risk in upcoming elections. this co fluctuates with the price of copper.UNTD 6.8% ISP and online content provider (Netzero among others)REITs, BDCs, trusts, MLPs, ocean transport, canroys, and prefered stocks are going to beplaces where you may find the div you require.good luck,--tytthus
