I've been looking into that - for people who don't want to do much work and want security - a listed property trust earning about 8% (but to try to buy them at below net tangible asset value) or look into some of the listed investment trusts - argo, australian foundation - they are conservative investments with not much volatility, all have dividend reinvestment plans. Of course, buying them below nta makes them even more 'conservative'.

If you look at a dividend yield of about 8% and reinvest it into the company - your money doubles in 9 years - this does not include tax(that has to be paid on the dividends) or increase in the share price (which should also occur in that time, as should the yield per share)

Hope that is of some help.
