What are people's thoughts on TIPS right now? A lot of my clients want ultra-safe investments, but can't accept 0.5% in MMKT or 2-3% in CD's. Treasuries are a ticking time bomb, and if inflation out-duals deflation in the next 6 months, TIPS could reap a windfall. Ultimately, TIPS should do well, it's just a matter of when that Washington Printing Press kicks into over-drive and puts a gallon of milk at $8.75.
I am partial to TIP (Barclays).
I welcome other perspectives.
