Later this week the Bureau of Labor Statistics will release the next inflation report. According to The Conference Board, U.S. consumers expect May’s inflation reading to be largely unchanged from the 8.3% annual reading from last month. This could be good news or bad news, depending on your perspective.
We’ve shared plenty of thoughts on how investors should think about their bond investments given the high level of current inflation. And we’ve provided insight on the benefit of real assets in an inflationary environment. This week, Heritage Chief Investment Officer, Bob Weisse, is answering the question:
Should I buy Treasury Inflation Protected Securities?
You can listen to Bob’s thoughts in this brief 23 minute episode of our podcast, Wealthy Behavior. He addresses this question head on in the first 5 minutes of the discussion with host Sammy Azzouz.
