There is a new ETF STIP. Any thoughts on this versus TIP?
theoretically it will be slightly less volatile than TIP
Here's the short answer.STIP pays less interest since the yield curve is so steep and it is a short-term bond fund.STIP would be safer than TIP if real interest rates rise.TIP should outperform STIP over the long-term.Cash would be better than either if interest rates rise quickly along the entire real yield curve.
Thanks for your (short) answer :)
Good grief. Yahoo doesn't appreciate my long answers it seems. I just tried posting again after the test. No luck.
I tried posting two replies to this. Yahoo ate them both it seems.So this is just a test to see what's going on.
