American Century Inflation-Protected Bond is one of the oldest funds in the inflation-protected bond Morningstar Category, but its more recently augmented flexibility—which has led to prior helpings of high-yield and emerging-markets debt--introduced risk and has not aided performance. The fund earns a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Neutral for most of its shares and Negative for its two most expensive classes.
