    I'm going outside the box from what you're probably looking for. More of a trader/speculator, but:

    Partridge!!!

    Old Turkey!!!

    If you have any interest whatsoever in the stock market, #1 must read book of the century (1923): reminiscences of a stock opererator

    Anyone interested, Pm me for a link to a pdf of the book

    Warren Buffet’s portfolio consists of 44 publicly traded companies. The vast majority of them (32) provide dividends, a number of which provide annual dividends in excess of four percent. You don’t amass a $60.0-billion fortune as an investor by mistake. As the third-wealthiest person on the planet, Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway stock has, over the last 51 years, grown from a per-book share value of $19.00 to $155,501. That’s a staggering compound annual growth rate of 19.2%.

    How does the “Oracle of Omaha” do it? “My wealth has come from a combination of living in America, some lucky genes, and compound interest,” Buffet said. “My luck was accentuated by my living in a market system that rewards those who can detect the mispricing of securities with sums reaching into the billions.”

    Some of these dividend paying stocks that are listed in his portfolio are:
    General Motors Company
    General Motors Company (NYSE/GM) is one of the world’s biggest automakers, with well-known brands such as Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, and GMC. The company operates through four business segments: GM North America, GM Europe, GM International Operations, and GM South America.
    Verizon Communications Inc.
    Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) is the second-largest communications provider, next to AT&T. But it’s bigger than AT&T when it comes to wireless services. Thanks to having the country’s largest wireless network, which gives it a competitive advantage, Verizon has 112.1 million customers.
    General Electric Company
    From turbines and TVs to aircraft engines and power plants, General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) brings good things to life. Of the 12 companies that made up the original Dow Jones Industrial Average way back in 1896, only GE is still on the list.
