Big Yields in the SP500

AlphaNinja - Below are some of the highest dividend yields in the S&P500. I excluded financials, as well as some that are all but guaranteed to cut those payouts.

This list is a quick screen from which I'll look further into some stocks to own. Sorted by declining market value:
