NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- It's hard to beat owning a high-yield stock. With other types of investing paying next to zero, equities continue to offer attractive yields.Of course a high yield doesn't mean much in the face of a large capital loss resulting from a company board's decision to terminate future dividend payments indefinitely. Radioshack (RSH) presents a recent illustration of a "yield trap"; a stock paying a very high yield that is unsustainable due to a lack of earnings.
