Tipswatch is written by David Enna, a longtime journalist based in Charlotte, N.C. I have been investing in Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities since 1999, also called ‘the good old days.’
This site is meant to explore ideas, benefits and cautions about TIPS and U.S. Series I Bonds, inflation-protected investments that I believe are an under-appreciated and under-used.
I’m a past winner of two Society of American Business Editors and Writers awards, have written on real estate and home finance, and was a founding editor of The Charlotte Observer’s website. So remember … I am a financial journalist, not a financial adviser. My main advice is: “Think for yourself.”
I launched this Tipswatch site in March 2011. Why? I guess I enjoy struggling with difficult concepts, and then trying to find explanations in simple-to-understand language. You can read full versions of the more than 300 articles I wrote for SeekingAlpha.com on my profile page there. I stopped writing for SeekingAlpha in November 2020 and moved back to writing solely for this site.
