You're pretty heavy on the electric utilties - while that provides diversification against any one of them losing value, if the who sector takes a hit you're going to take a big hit.You can invest in the utilities sector with the ETF VPU (Vanguard) 4.3% yield if you want to stay company diversified but with a smaller dollar amount.Utilities aren't as safe as they used to be - VPU fell from 78 to 47 between Aug 2008 and March 2009.You might want to look at oil tankers - I've owned NAT for years, and it has yielded 10-15% throughout that time.This screen: http://screener.finance.yahoo.com/b?im=^SPC&mc=100000000... shows the 73 stocks in the S&P 500 yielding above 4%.WRJ
