One option guaranteed to keep up with rising prices is Treasury inflation-protected securities - TIPS. These offer a relatively low- percentage return, but the principal is guaranteed to keep up with inflation - and the interest is figured on each year's inflated principal (assuming inflation, notdeflation). When the securities mature, the buyer is guaranteed either the inflation-adjusted principal or the original face value of the bond, whichever is higher. Because TIPS are not tax-efficient - growth and earnings are taxable each year - they are ideal for a tax-deferred account. They can be bought directly from the government with no extra fees at, or on the secondary market through your broker. TIPS mutual funds may be subject to price fluctuations.
