WIW has slightly (1% or so) underperformed TIP (TIPS ETF) in the last 3 months. The discount has widened a bit and TIPS along with other bonds have been getting hit. This is chiefly about the bond market selling off. The 10 year nominal treasury is over 2% and mortgage rates are moving up to a 4-handle.
Will you get back to even? Search me. That is a question for every investment, especially bond funds. I value this as part of a diversified portfolio.
