To add what the other posts said, look into:
1) Preferred stocks: Not only do you get an increased dividend relative to regular stocks, but you get a share in the stock appreciation.
2) REITs: Real Estate Investment Trusts pay high dividends.
3) Look into these books: "The 100 Best Stocks to Own in America (5th Ed)", Gene Walden and "The America's Finest Companies Investment Plan 1998", Bill Staton. Both books have lists of blue-chip companies you can investigate for high dividend yields. Not only do you want a high yield, but you want a dividend that increases at a rate higher than inflation.
