    So this is down what 5-6% for the year even with dividend reinvestment? How are TIPS protecting against inflation again??

    Sounds like no one knows how this fund works. Basically went down dramatically over the last year with super high inflation. Doesn’t seem like a very good hedge. I’m out.

    Annual yield is 6% according to marketwatch, that can't be right

    Why is the yield only 1.87% even though inflation is 8%. Hmmm

    TIPS have under performed almost since their inception. But I believe we are in a perfect situation for them to do their job. The Fed has said it intends to keep rates low and inflation is temporary. But the CPI numbers show >3% inflation. The last months, Ishare Tips have paid out 1% in cash dividends. I would believe that is far better than any other bond options. I’m in them as a hedge against the usual 60/40 stock bond mix. It has allowed me to continue to make money both with equities and bonds. I welcome anyone to show me a better way, right now to have a more profitable 60/40 mix. Thank You and I look forward to feedback.

    Now that the feds have done all the bond buying and have sent TIPS up, when do you think it's time to sell these and trade it in for some of the Dow / S&P ETFs - surely this will outperform "inflation" in the next 5-10 years. Unless we truly really see a huge rise in inflation. What are your opinions?

    I sent detailed WEB-mail to Blackrock-Ishares inquiring why NO DIVIDENDS LAST THREE MOS. the following is transcript of voicemail I received
    ... "My name is Jonathan Carlson. I'm calling from Ishares. Just regarding your question about TIP shares tips Bond. ETF fund is going to hold inflation-protected securities issued by the US Treasury, and the way those work is they follow a CPI index and when there's negative CPI in the past couple of months, which we saw in quarter four of 2018. Then the fund is going to receive reduced to income from those Securities, and when the fund receives reducing come they can decide to not pay a distribution. Again, the funds objective is to outperform inflation, which it will do its objective is not to provide current income on a monthly basis. If you have any further questions, you can give us a call at 800-474-2737. Thank you, and have a nice day, sir. "

    Inflation inevitable, TIP drops. Makes perfect sense.

    Red market from inflation news and still this is down. Real inflation over 10% and this down 3% YTD.
    Why?

    I have held on to this for a long time. I have had some returns, but certainly nothing that actually keeps up with inflation. With this now being "stagnant" while staring in the face of massive money printing and real inflation; it is time to find another place to absorb our government's out of control behavior. Right now the only asset class that seems to not be hindered by manipulation is crypto currency. I have always been a gold/silver investor and ignored crypto...but at this point it is at least marginally better than being in cash and/or TIP. TIP has become a joke. The fundamentals are no longer correct for this to be a hedge. See you later.

    In 2012 these shares were $123 each. I don't understand how they can drop in value over time if supposedly the underlyinf bonds get revalued for inflation twice a year. Can some help me understand? I am sorry if this is a silly question. Thanks

    0.786 dividend declared 12/16. I guess inflation is so high they can't wait for 1st of month this time.

    Will the yield rise if the inflation rate rises?
