Default Re: Why not settle for 20+% yield Dividends?

The reason why I ask is that I see a list of stocks, a lot of energy and mineral/commodity stocks, and for example, CPNO or NAT, an energy and a Tanker Company, not companies that are going under anytime soon, stocks beaten down just like every other but are now on the way back up, that are yielding about 19%. The companies I've been considering and even bought from today, have been steadily increasing dividends and their futures, on paper, look really, really good. I welcome the advice, thanks.

I can't help but to think that as the stock prices have, for the most part, been beaten down for whatever reasons, the dividend yields go up since the prices are now so low. Must it also help when Insiders have bought recently as well?
