5:42 am
how were you and i just, the normal people, how are we being impacted? >> it is impacting the retirement account. the 401k usually goes forward or -- -- usually goes quarterly. you do really begin to notice some swings. sometimes it is temperate because of the money coming out of the paychecks to buy more. so it is important for people to drill down their exact number so they know exactly, how does my actual return compared to what is going on in the broader stock market? >> so we take the emotion out of the stock market. but that is hard.
5:43 am
that is, we project out what we need our money to do to get to the retirement goal or to save for the kids college. we have a targeted return. then we know how that targeted return is working and what is happening over the course of four or five years. so it begins with your goals and your plan. it shows you what you need to make your financial plan work. part of that return is very important. the dividends are not guaranteed. but they can be a more predictable form of a return. so that can help ease and believe -- ease and alleviate some of the wild swings. >> so with all of this buzz, you see the big numbers on your screen and that can be scary. can down numbers help us in the
5:44 am
>> volatility does create opportunities overtime. so most of the time you have to look at the bigger picture and say, how can i use what is going on to my vantage? again, with a targeted return, it is a plan.
5:45 am
so, let me get this straight -- u.s. cellular has the phone you're looking for, a network that's built to give you coverage way out here where the other guys don't,
5:46 am
that's a lot less than verizon and at&t. so, why on earth would you ever go with one of those other guys? switch to u.s. cellular now and get 6 gigs of data for $40 a month plus get $300 back. [ echoing ] just sayin'. i get out of work and i go to the store, and somebody's, smellin' around, "mmm! i smell cookies." i say, "oh no, you just smell me. i just got out of work. that's honey bunches of oats, that's all."

5:50 am
below freezing again in the forecast, we will hang out around average. 43 degrees on monday, 44 degrees on tuesday. wednesday we go back into the 40's. an average day on thursday. right now, next weekend looks dry. alyx: think you've seen just about every kind of superhero movie? think again. john pascuzzi says you've never seen anything like deadpool. on thursday. >> in the world of movie super heroes, there's batman, superman, spiderman. but now comes a different kind of super hero, make that anit-hero. his name is deadpool. ryan reynolds stars as wade wilson, a former special forces operative who's now in love. unfortunately, his love affair will be short lived when he's diagnosed with inoperable cancer. he ends up going through a rogue

healing powers, but also leaves him hideously deformed. >> you are a fighter. >> you are hard to look at. you look like a topographical map of utah. him hideously deformed.>> exactly. >> weight. you may be wondering, why the red suit? that is so bad guys can't see me bleed. cue the music. >> deadpool is rated r for a reason, actually a lot of reasons like language, nudity, violence and sexual situations, this is not a film for kids. but for adults, there's a lot to like, especially reynolds, who has a grand old time playing this foul mouth, motor mouth anti-hero who's mission, in his home made red costume, is not to save the world but to get revenge on those who harmed him, deadpool. better red than dead. for kcci 8 news, this is john
