With interest rates at current low levels investors are increasingly looking at dividends from shares (or equities) as an alternative to bonds and bank term deposits for income.

The highest yielding stocks also tend to have the highest risk. No point getting a high yield this year and none next year. Consider high quality companies you recognise that are going to be in business for the long term.
