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 dividend

ALD 7.6% BDC, steady and growing dividend

ACAS 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 pipeline

FDG 11.1% canadian coal trust that produces coal used by steel companies

FRO 16% oil tanker/shipping company

PCU 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,
