    Why is it up 10% after hours today?

    I have owned SCHP for more than a year. This is a good investment as an inflation hedge. What many people do not realize is that the yield on TIPS bonds was negative because the FED was purchasing these bonds during quantitative easing. Now that quantitate easing has ended, TIPS bond prices go down which increases the coupon yield on the bond. At present, SCHP is paying out over 10% in dividends. The price of SCHP represents the market price of the bonds, not the payout. If inflation goes down, then the market price of the bonds goes up. In my opinion, these bonds are a good investment because the volatility in the market price for the bonds does not exceed the dividend payout of 10%.

    So should I assume that since there are a couple of Fed rate hikes left, the share price will drop each time ?

    is SCHP dividends paying out 12% monthly right now? Bad idea to trade on margin?

    I gotta say; there is not much inflation protection in this ETF. Anyway, I guess dollar cost averaging can be useful here (maybe). I think I will wait a bit longer first.

    Sold all shares. As long as T Bill and interest rates are being jacked up, the inflation yields from this fund will be wiped out, and so will the fund price.
    U will loose more $$$ staying in this type of fund as long as those continue.

    If this goes down when inflation is roaring what good is it?

    Per the Schwab website, ex div is 1 Feb and payout is 7 Feb. I'm thinking of selling SCHP and keeping VTIP (shorter duration treasuries). I have a dividend ETF (DIV). It has done well and I'm thinking of buying more after the next dividend. I got into commodities (GSG and BG) too soon and sold at a small loss. Thinking of buying BG again after their dividend @13 Feb and adding consumer staples (VDC). Any comments?

    guess I don't understand tips, just bought a while ago, thought with today's news of higher inflation would have gone up, anyone?

    Started buying this in early July. Price has gone down but dividends are great. My IRR without reinvestment is 5.5%. Bond ETF (BND) return for this same period is -0.11%. My conclusion: this ETF is better than bond ETFs and is protecting me against inflation. YMMV

    Disappointing dividend and share price. Have held for quite some time as a hedge against inflation. Not working well. Tough market to invest in currently. Might hold cash for a while at least into March and Fed increases. See where we are then.

    Has anyone ever really been protected from inflation by TIPS in the last fifty years?

    I have compared SCHP to VTIP until I'm weary. Do any of you have an opinion as to which is a better guard against inflation and reliable returns?

    When the whole stock market declined in March how come this ETF declined? I thought this was the flight to safety type ETF this should have skyrocketed

    I can't figure out if I should be dripping this ETF or not. What are you guys doing?

    Anyone have an idea of why the price of both SCHP and VTIP declined sharply at the beginning of 2022?

    Just curious, where did you find February dividend data?

    This price action literally makes no sense, I guess the inflation narrative is pure fantasy. That’s not what I’m finding when I grocery shop.
