Weinstein calls long-term TIPS attractive, though he warns that short-term TIPS may fall victim to deflation. Weinstein, who manages the $1.7 billion BlackRock Inflation Protected Bond
fund, said that TIPS maturing in January or April 2011 are not worth owning, but he said long-term TIPS are more attractive.
Weinstein's fund has achieved net inflows of $1 billion this year through September, a significant increase over the $340 million netted in all of 2008.
Worah, who manages the $15.4 billion Pimco Real Return Fund
, echoed Weinstein in noting that deflation at some point next year is a possibility.
