foobar,

Thank you. It is starting to look like a conventional Treasury offering or other bond might be better at this time. I need to do more research. I have inherited an IRA under which mandatory distributions must be taken beginning with about $2,700 by 12/31/03 if the IRA's value is stable through 12/31/02. We were thinking of fixed income instruments capable of generating the bulk of this $2,700 annually and locking in a real return with TIPS but the numbers do not work well currently.
