    FALSE RUMOR #1 : "TIP" ETF OFFERS A 2% DIVIDEND" ... WRONG THE TOTAL 2013 DIV. YIELD IS 0.14% ...

    Tip dividends are being suspended so i see no reason why those still buying "tip" etf are thinking they are getting something special or that they are going to be getting a dividend return of 2% or something? it's just not true. deflation reported yesterday and over past 3 years, continues to widen and deepen, and there is nothing to support tip and tips at this time. i feel there is a responsibility we each have to educate others when they likely will lose not earn a rate of return they are expecting. i would sell tip and buy something like tlt or agg or another bond etf that you find interesting. Because all of these will be gaining popularity with interest rates heading lower. tip is a higher interest rate investment choice and move up on higher prospects for rates going up on i-bonds and tips and anything linked to "inflation".
