Looking for Good Dividend Paying Stocks

Here's a list of dividend paying stocks that I'm using as one of my references for choosing stocks when I make purchases.  Of course, it's still important to do due diligience since a high(er) dividend doesn't necessarily mean the company's stock will do well (e.g. Pitney Bowes).  Also, there is additional risk should the interest rate rise suddenly.

However, depending on the time period, dividends have accounted for 40-50% of the total long term return of the stock market.  So it makes sense to me to have a diversified portfolio of good dividend paying stocks as part of our retirement investments.
