    What is the best free way to search for top yeilding/fully franked shares. They must be listed in order of highest yeild musn't they?

    I subscribe to the AFR - afr.com and here is a sample of available share tables, dated 14/06/06. Perhaps as a sample it may not be considered a copyright issue?

    And just to stop being constantly reminded about having not posted for eons...can I be the resident nit-picking spelling-nazi and suggest that the spelling required here is "yield". Please do not take personally...I just want to rid myself of the shame of being a perpetual "lurker".

    Smart Investor has the DOGS OF THE DOW list as it might be seen on the ASX.

    I suspect some of the stocks are so far out of favour that the yield is high - TLS comes to mind. But an interesting list nonetheless. It lists the top yielding stocks from the biggest 50.

    They are:

    TEL 9.44%
    TLS 7.55%
    MAP 6.58%
    QAN 6.35%
    BSL 5.51%
    TAH 5.32%
    TCL 5.24%
    WES 5.19%
    AMC 5.16%

    This was compiled from data as at 31 May. Clearly the yields may be a fraction higher after the last week.

    Any of those worth a punt folks? :) :) BSL and WES are of interest to me for a long term hold in my portfolio.

    Be careful about Telstra - aren't they funding their high distributions out of debt currently?

    At any rate, their river of gold (local calls) will be plundered over the next 5 years.
