Are Fund Investors TIPSy With Inflation Fears?

News summary by MFWire's editors

Such funds boasted $51 billion on December 31 and have returned an average of 7.4 percent this year, as of September 21, according to Morningstar.

The iShares Barclays TIPS Bond Fund, Pimco's three new TIPS ETFs, and Vanguard's Inflation Protected Securities Fund all gain mentions in the article.
