Analyst Report

This ETF offers broad-based exposure to TIPS, bonds issued by the U.S. government featuring principal that adjusts based on certain measures of inflation. TIP has become tremendously popular as a way of protecting asset values against upticks in inflation, and as such can be used in different ways by a number of different types of investors. This ETF may have appeal as a tactical play when concerns about inflationary pressures intensify, or may be used as a core holding in a long-term, but-and-hold portfolio. As a very low risk asset, TIP will generally feature a relatively meager yield. TIP is one of several broad TIPS ETFs; and it is arguably the most famous of the bunch as it has by far the most assets in the Category. This fund is competitive from a cost perspective and offers up unmatched liquidity, making it worthy of consideration for any investors seeking exposure to this corner of the bond market. While TIPS have become popular as a means of protecting against inflation, it is noted that there are potential limitations to this asset class in accomplishing this objective as well. TIP is by no means a surefire defense against inflation; rising interest rates, which tend to accompany upticks in CPI, have the potential to erode the value of this fund. Short-term TIPS ETFs such as STIP or STPZ may be forth a closer look, as well as more creative alternatives such as CPI, RRF or other real return ETFs.
