They might think of putting some money in REITS where you can get 8-10% dividends that are pretty safe. Washington Real Estate Investment Trust, for example, is paying 8% right now with a PE of 12 and has increased dividends for 28 years, i.e. right through the Nixon stock market. At some point these are going to soar.

Also there are closed end funds that aim to pay out 10%/yr like the Zweig Fund (ZF) and, perhaps better, the Gabelli Equity Trust (GAB). They are selling at big discounts which means, if they liquidate, you should make a profit on that alone.

IBM is a very solid tech company that pays a dividend and has been increasing it every year recently. It is also underpriced. Look at the IBM Board, expecially posts by Chapman208.
