When markets fall, like they have over the past 6 months, they are usually followed by some very good quality floats. Why? Because the markets will no longer support any suspect capital raisings. We have seen Wesfarmers come out with a rights issue at a 20% discount and now Suncorp with the Pref share. This is one to be in if you have a long term investment time frame and are looking for a secure high yielding investment.
