There are still some pretty good dividend stocks in emerging markets (CEE in particular) that can yield you up to 10%, in which I'm currently putting my savings (entry level job in inv.banking).

If you do quick back of the envelope math here, to have any real amount of money you would probably need $120K at a conservative 5%, which nets you about a $500 a month before taxes. Invest for growth and stretch your monthly income, once you accumulated enough then meet your goals for income. Bah Humbug

There's always mortgage REITs, which are yielding 15%-20%, but of course there's a damn good reason the yields are high. When the Fed starts raising rates, it could get ugly.
Love me some REITs yielding at almost 20%... Dunno what the end is going to look like (or when it is going to come) but it probably won't be pretty. Should sell my AGNC shares at some point...but I don't want to
