No. of Recommendations: 0
just three things for you to look at or ignore:

1. I think STRIPS give you a slightly better yield for the same time frame than the actual note/bond.

2. As a zero, it's a good substitute for re-investing your semi-annual interest payemnts.

3. When interest rates drop, don't long term STRIPS give you a better capital gain than the actual note or bond with the same maturity date?

And...where do you find TINTS?? I've never seen them offerred...(not that I've spent any time looking for them).
