"My view of tips is that they are for people who are looking for 0 real return."

TIPS are bought in small quantities by financially-naive retail investors who are so scared they'll settle for peanuts and massively --and probably on margin-- by some very sophisticated insitutionals who can turn a serious profit on the trade or who need to deleverage so as to enhance their risk profile.

Right now, I wouldn't mess with them. Let some clarity emerge in the inflation/deflation picture and let the Fed stop making things worse.
