  3. Interesting thing about high yield stocks generally speaking be it stocks of retailers be it heavy industry stocks be it media companies they do not like to have a yield higher than 4% or about that. Its usually oil and gas limited partnerships' real estate investment tructs Marine shipping companies among a few others that have high yields. The high yield stocks tend to be very heavily concentrated in a few narrow sectors.
