Sure beats 0.5% stuck in a bank!

Agreed, but calling them "safe" dividend-paying stocks, is not the term I would necessarily use. AT&T for example has lost more in value than the dividend since last year (-5.7%), while the S&P has gained nearly 20% over the same period.

I think such individuals (those that actually kept their money in savings for the yield) would be better served by looking at individual bonds or CDs. Stock, even that of good companies, is probably too volatile of an alternative.
