The silver lining of surging inflation: I-bond yields should climb above 9%

Should you buy now or wait until the rate resets in May?

Want to lock in a greater-than-8% return with U.S. Treasurys over the next 12 months?

Of course you would, especially given the higher-than-expected inflation numbers reported this week, with the Consumer Price Index rising 8.5% over the last 12 months. Our absolute minimum goal with a U.S. Treasury is not to lose to inflation.

Yet even this modest goal seems impossibly out of reach. The one-year Treasury yield currently stands at just 1.9%.
