There are two "sweeteners". The first is a promise of a 28c fully franked dividend. But this is subject to caveats about the government no fiddling with the regulations - which it has promised to do. It is a good deal for retirees and people who are not taxpayers - not me. mainly, though, a high yield is a sign of a slumped share price. The other is one bonus share for each 25 purchased if they are held until 15 May 2008.

The bottom line is whether I can find better places to invest money.
