Aware that these are available and can fit into some strategies. Charlie over on the Bond & Fixed Incomes board is convinced that with interest rates so low, its a terrible time to buy any fixed income.

The TINTs should be high yield treasury investments. But people say they are very hard to find these days. When people buy STRIPs, the TINTs are easily sold, and not widely offered. Maybe even private placements. Probably very attractive to money market funds, pensions, insurance companies, etc, etc. Individuals rarely get a chance to buy them. But they do exist.
