    Re: TIPS-Treasury Inflation-Protected Securitie

    one of the most efficient ways to buy "some" of thes is by using the ETF with the ticker TIP. They can be a good investment especially in inflationary time because they tend told hold their price better than a regular bond or treasury. Go Cyclones!!!

    Re: TIPS-Treasury Inflation-Protected Securitie

    ishares has a really good TIPS holding too.

    Worried about inflation are we?

    ishares TIPS - symbol (TIP) is yielding 3.93%.

    Compare that with the Barclays aggregate at 4.09% and I would say it's a good spot to sit in the near term. Short-term bonds are another spot that will be good. Much less volitiliy "if" & "when" rates increase, but still a good return.

    another thing. Etf's are nice bc you'll be better diversified, mgmt fees are minimal, and you can buy/sell like a stock.
