"on the money" starts right now. this is "on the money." the stock market plunges, the price of oil tumbles, and how high might interest rates go? you might say so what? but they a matter if you have a retirement act. they're sending the stock market on a scary ride. >> it has been a volatile week
the nasdaq is having it's worst start to the year since 2001. china's stock market plunged nearly 7%. their the second largest economy, and the slow down has ripple effects across the globe. second, a worry about crude oil prices that fell to 12 year lows. that is connected to china because china is keeping it's economy going. the u.s. economy is dependent on oil production. the downturn has resulted in job losses for more than 83,000 workers as nearly two thirds of oil ridges have been decommissioned in the past year. on wednesday, the fed released the minutes from their federal policy meeting when they released the minutes for the first time in nearly a decade. the concern was that inflation would linger and people expect
next year that could slow down the economy. and the u.s. dollar is growing in strength and that could be good news, but it could make goods more expensive for foreign countries to buy and hurting business. nothing causes people to worry about their money like dramatic moves in the markets like this. joining us right now is sharon epperson on how to navigate on the volatility. people wake up and see the first few trading days of the year with such traumatic losses, and they think i should sell my stocks and get out of this until you see why things land. >> when you look at some of the worst times in our history, the great depression or recession, look at the returns in the subsequent five years. you want to be part of that action when the stock market comes back. you never know when to time it
>> is that a way of saying you should never look at what is happening with the averages? or is there a moment where it might make sense to maybe put in double what you have been putting in on a regular weekly basis or something? >> it is best to have a plan, that is the first place to start. it is a great time to do it here at the start of the year. how much you need to put away, set a course and stay that course. it needs to reflect your timeline, when you want to retire, your risk tollerancetolerance. how much of a drop can you stomach. and you have to be willing to rebalance when you need to rebalance and make sure your photofolio last stocks, bonds, and other asset classes. >> what do you do to keep your emotions in check? >> it is very emotional. and the thing that i like when this happens, you know, and you
stock market drop? it makes people pay attention. now they're you paying attention, don't panic, but make sure you have a plan. talk to a financial advisory. make sure you decide what your goals are and come up with a strategy. >> even has a retirement plan they're thinking about. maybe your reaction should be different if you're in your 30s, 40s, and 50s. >> if you need money in five years, you don't need it in the stock market at all. if you have a short-term goal like buying a house or you want to invest in a business or something, you may want your money in conservative investments. when you talk about retirement, this is a long-term perspective and you need to think that way. if you're a young investor, fidelity came out with a potential scenario, 85% of it should be in the stock market. >> what is young? >> 20s, early 30s, or just starting out in your career and
that is where you need to have your money, nanny a mix of u.s. and foreign stocks as well. 15% or so should be in bonds. when you're mid career and we're talking 30s to 40s, and maybe even longer, you need to focus on growth. in that growth portfolio you have about 70% of your money in the stock market. again a mix of foreign and u.s. equities. and then you want to have 5% or so in the short-term investments and the rest in bonds. >> what happens in your 50s or 60s and you're heading towards retirement. >> you should still be heavily invested in the stock market, about after of your portfolio in stocks. think about your life expectancies now, we're living to the 80s and longer. you need that money for growth. pat of your portfolio has to have that growths a s aaspect to it.
of bonds and short-term instruments like money markets. >> sharon, thank you very much. >> sure, my pleasure. here is a look at other stories making news as we go into a new week "on the money." a strong jobs report for the month of december. the economy created 292,000 jobs, and numbers for previous months were revised higher. the low of 5%. what a week for the stock market, and we don't mean a good one. the dow had their worst first four days of year ever. the same held true of the s&p 500. the nasdaq fell about 6% with a three-month low with worries about china taking center stage. auto sales hit a record high last year with americans buying 17.5 million vehicles in 2015.
old drugs just to make millions. in march it will be six years since the affordable care act became the law. is obama care making health care more affordable as intended. faced with premiums and higher deductibles, some people are not so sure. >> michael chadwick is all for obama care insurance, but the man hatenthe manhattan realtor says he could not make his payments.
business started to pick up. the affordable health care act doesn't take into account that small business owners may not have consistent income. >> they signed up for 2016 exchange plans by late december. that is well below the 20 million expected to sign up by year three of obama care. analysts say cost remains an issue. >> many middle income people continue to suggest that exchange plans just are not affordable for them even with the subsidies, they simply can't make the monthly premiums work in addition to all of the out of pocket costs. >> insurers are seeing higher costs. a dozen nonprofit co-op insurers are out of business, and united health says they may stop
>> people are reconfiguring their products. what we're going to know next year is what works and what doesn't. >> a budget deal delay could help with prices in 2017. but the real key is getting more healthy people to stay enrolled. >> i'm paying a little per month for the peace of mind so my jewish mother can sleep at night. >> the penalty of not haves insurance goes up to $695 or 2.5% of your income, whatever is higher. continuing our obama care check up, let's bring in dr. kenneth davis. he is the president and ceo of the mount sinai health system. what is the truth? we have seen news about rising premiums, higher deductibles, is obama care working or not?
the premiums are going up, deductibles are higher, and that is a problem. insurers are leaving the risk pool. it is not enough healthy people have signed up, and that is because the penalties were not enough. they rise enough, perhaps, that more healthy young people, those ages 25 to 35 will join. they diminish the cost of insurance by distributing it over a larger population. roughly the estimate is 35% to 45% of the risk pool, it gets -- the whole insurance system gets in trouble. >> what percentage is signing up right now. >> right now it is about 26%. >> united health is talking about potentially dropping out of obama care. we also heard about mega mergers. what does that consolidation mean?
of others, what does it mean for prices next year? >> less kpecompetition, and that is a problem. the ftc really has to look at that market by market. >> we know that as a result of obama care, you're now looking at an uninsured population. that is the good news, what do you think needs to be fixed? >> we have to ask what are the drivers or health care expenses and how will we curtail that increase. and part of the problem is the 25% of medicare dollars is spent in the last year of life. we have still done very little to change the way we approach end of life care. advanced directives are very helpful, but what we often find is that as patients get end of life diseases, there are no end
>> frankly it is a conversation from our own personal experiences that you usually don't have until the midst of things and that is difficult emotionally. >> it is too late then, and we don't want to ask hard questions like should a condition for being in the medicare program be that you have to give us an advanced directive when you seen up. that would change everything. >> you look at one of the huge health care costs, and it will be company that's are talking about big increases. you understand that for research and development, drug companies need to be able to charge a certain price, but how do you find the happy medium? >> it is a very complex problem. the rest of the world regulates the drug prices. our market is the market where the companies have to generate profit. we have to recognize that this is a trade issue.
with the eu, and with the pacific rim, we have to say that we can't be the only place in the world that is giving drug investment. >> that is a different argument than some say. you worry you shut down any innovation. you're telling our companies they can't regulate drug prices, either. >> we all have to sit together and say what is an appropriate return on investment, and what is necessary for the infrastructure of the pharmaceutical industry so they can be innovative. >> over the last year, i think there was 45 new drugs approved, and that is great news that many of these were for specialized or rare diseases and i wonder what
when it comes to chronic illness. >> the other way we bend the cost curve is with breakthrough therapeutics. and they have to be in the the area with the most disability and the most cost. the diseases that stand out are type two diabetes and alzheimer's. we don't have adequate incentive incentives there. so we have encouraged companies to take a business model that doesn't develop the most important drugs. >> and i think the fix for that is a longer sort of discussion, but is there something quickly that you think -- >> in the 21st century cure act, it would be very helpful if we had an extended market exclusivity. the alzheimer's clinical trials will take so long, done right,
boutiques. if you have been to the gym lately, you may have noticed it's more packed than usual. the annual new year's resolution is there. people focused on weight loss and getting in shape. now there is a broader choice as the big business of fitness getting even bigger. morgan brennan joins us more. >> it is a studio based exercise that has influenced fashion and food. >> an average price tag of $30 per class.

>> it cost 50% to 100% more than the industry average. it inspired a fashion trend called at leisure. >> it is more than 40 fitness nessness brands and a celebrity following. the fashion start up has opened five brick and mortar locatns. it even has a tuesday owe where well known instructors teach classes. >> and it helped fuel a culinary craze. foods labelled with health attributes jumps 13% meaning getting in shape may increasingly mean getting financially fit. >> i tried a number of these classes, they're not for the faint of heart if is easy to understand why this has become
of fitness fashionistas. they have seen sales in studios that have been open for more than a year increase by more than 30%. if this was a publicly traded company that would be incredible growth. >> i stick to the old stinky gyms myself, but what about the new high end fancy gyms, are they able to continue to compete? >> referee: some of them are more traditional. big box gyms continue to have a dominant piece in the fashion industry. it is the small boutique studios. one of the other things we're seeing happen is the byifurcation of the fitness industry. they will do the $10 membership at a lower end gym like planet fitness. >> that makes sense, you get a little of everything that way. >> up next "on the money" get a look at the week ahead.
