Currently TIP's along with other "T" stuff doesn't pay squat.

We have little (reported) inflation, but my expectation is still that we will have reportable inflation in late 2012 moving forward. So the question is whether on a long (20-30 year) TIP, the increase in interst rates weighing on the price will be more than compensated for by increased inflation (from an interest and capital gain point of view). What would be the tax ramifications of this schitzoid behavior?

It might not be the best time to play with these (or maybe the best time as many seem to think deflation is here to stay).

What think you guys?
