There is a tendency to look at the S&P500 Dividend Yields vs US 10 year, but in many ways, that is a less than ideal comparison. Corporate Bonds are more of an apple to apple comparison.

Note that there is an almost 200 bps spread over the US 10yr — nearly double the dividend yield of the S&P500.

We keep talking about how the “Great Rotation” into equities from bonds has not yet happened, but folks looking for yield may wish to pay more attention to AAA rated corporates.
