Tips - Treasury Inflation Protected Bonds

Saturday, May 4, 2013 - 10:38 AM
Dear Readers,

Due to sharp rise in Stock Market last week that was mostly attributed to job gains in US labor market, thanks to FOMC of course - ;-) - the Treasury Inflation Protected bonds took a hit.

The ETFs that hold TIPs declined.  Some of the decliners are: SCHP, IPE, TIP.  In the coming week I'll be on the lookut to buy some of these at favorable prices.  The dividends paid by these securities is meager, so the profit (if any) is mostly from buying low and selling high.

Link here shows the distribution history for TIP:  http://us.ishares.com/product_info/fund/distributions/TIP.htm

Dear Readers,

The decline in TIPs took a little longer than what I had guestimated, but they have declined.

Started buying today (May 22, 2013) with SCHP @ 56.84 per share.

Link to details about SCHP are below ...
