    questions regarding SEC yield

    The iShares website currently reports 30 day SEC yield at 5.63% for TIP, and 6.09% for STIP which I'm considering instead for its lower interest rate risk. Historically, the STIP distributions have been lower than TIP as would expect, but how can the current SEC yield be higher? Is there something like contango happening with their yield curve? And does the SEC yield being higher than the trailing distribution yield imply that upcoming distributions will be higher?
