3 ways to get other people to pay off your student loans 10:50 AM ET Mon, 15 Oct 2018 | 01:23

As student debt grows, so do the plans to squelch it.

A new federal program offers up to $75,000 in student loan relief for those who work for three years in the health-care field, battling the opioid epidemic.

South Korean automaker Hyundai announced this month that it will give $900 to people with student debt who buy or lease a car from the company. The offer is only available at dealerships in California and Phoenix right now.

Meanwhile, student loan assistance, which started as a niche offering by a handful of companies, is finding its way into the mainstream menu of workplace benefits.

Some of the other ideas are pretty creative: New Jersey, for example, considered establishing a lottery for borrowers burdened by student debt.

Other ways of garnering money to eliminate your education debt don’t rely on luck, but rather require rolling up your sleeves or knowing historical facts.

The Trump administration is forcing this health start-up that took Chinese money into a fire sale

As the Trump administration cracks down on Chinese investment in corporate America, one health tech start-up is facing an abnormal situation: PatientsLikeMe is being forced to find a buyer after the U.S. government has ordered its majority owner, a Chinese firm, to divest its stake.

PatientsLikeMe provides an online service that helps patients find people with similar health conditions. In 2017, the start-up raised $100 million and sold a majority stake to Shenzhen-based iCarbonX, which was started by genomic scientist Jun Wang and is backed by Chinese giant Tencent.

That deal has recently drawn the attention of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), which is aggressively cracking down on Chinese investments in American companies, particularly when national security and trade secrets are at risk.

CFIUS is now forcing a divestiture by iCarbonX, meaning PatientsLikeMe has to find a buyer, according to several people with knowledge of the matter. PatientsLikeMe started receiving notifications from CFIUS late last year, said the people, who asked not to be named because the details are confidential.

The move could have dire implications for the start-up community, as Chinese investors are scared away or forbidden from participating in deals that can help emerging businesses.

As a result of the Trump administration’s clampdown, Chinese direct investment in the U.S. has plummeted 90 percent in two years, from $46 billion in 2016 to $4.8 billion in 2018, according to data from research firm Rhodium Group. Another $20 billion in divestitures is still pending, says Rhodium.

Starbucks is bringing the next big dairy-free milk to some US cafes

The oat milk trend doesn’t look like it is dying anytime soon.

Coffee giant Starbucks will start offering the dairy-free substitute Tuesday at five locations, another sign that oat milk could be here to stay.

Oat milk has a texture and taste that more closely resemble cow’s milk than other nondairy alternatives like soy and almond milk, even when steamed for lattes. The dairy-free milk is made by soaking steel-cut oats in water, blending the mixture and then straining it.

Starbucks’ entry into oat milk comes as Americans’ appetites for milk alternatives keeps growing. Some, like quinoa milk, have struggled to take hold, but almond and soy milk remain among the most popular options. U.S. nondairy milk sales grew 61 percent to an estimated $2.11 billion between 2012 and 2017, according to a Mintel report. Overall dairy milk sales declined by 15 percent to $16.12 billion during the period.

The oat milk craze in the U.S. started several years ago when Swedish company Oatly arrived stateside. Enthusiasm briefly faltered last summer when skyrocketing demand led to a shortage of oat milk for the several hundred New York City coffee shops that offered the dairy-free substitute. Oatly is opening its first U.S. production plant this spring to help ramp up supply.

Other beverage companies are now jumping on the trend, with PepsiCo’s Quaker Oats launching its own version in November.

Starbucks started offering oat milk in European locations in early 2018, but it’s finally bringing the dairy substitute to the U.S. as the trend grows. However, for now, its U.S. availability will be limited to five Starbucks Reserve locations in three cities: Seattle, San Francisco and New York.

The coffee chain has been using the upscale Reserve stores to launch innovative new drinks, like its Nitro Cold Brew, before rolling them out nationwide. They’re also part of a strategy to defend against high-end upstarts, like Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea — which was also the first U.S. coffee shop to offer Oatly.

Oat milk fans can also order the vegan substitute at three of Starbucks’ Princi bakeries in Seattle, Chicago and New York.

Shanghai stocks plummet more than 4 percent: ‘China’s trade recession has started to emerge’

Shares in mainland China crumbled on Friday after Chinese trade data missed expectations by a wide margin. China on Friday reported worse than expected trade data for the month of February. China’s February trade balance was also significantly weaker than expected at $4.12 billion. The country’s trade balance in January had been $39.16 billion.

Shanghai stocks plummet more than 4 percent: 'China's trade recession has started to emerge'

Shares in mainland China crumbled on Friday after Chinese trade data missed expectations by a wide margin.

All major Chinese indexes closed the day deep in negative territory. The Shanghai composite plunged 4.4 percent, the Shenzhen component tumbled 3.248 percent and the Shenzhen composite dropped 3.791 percent. The CSI 300, which tracks the largest shares on the mainland, plummeted nearly 4 percent.

The significant losses in Chinese stocks came as overall sentiment in Asia was downbeat for the day. MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan dropped 1.5 percent, as of 3:14 p.m. HK/SIN.

China on Friday reported worse than expected trade data for the month of February. Dollar-denominated exports plunged 20.7 percent for the month from a year ago, missing economists’ expectations of a 4.8 percent decline, according to a Reuters poll. February’s dollar-denominated imports, meanwhile, fell 5.2 percent from the prior year, missing an expected 1.4 percent fall.

China’s February trade balance was also significantly weaker than expected at $4.12 billion. Economists polled by Reuters had expected the overall trade balance to come in at $26.38 billion. The country’s trade balance in January had been $39.16 billion.

In a note on Friday, ANZ said the release of the trade numbers reinforced its view that “China’s trade recession has started to emerge.”

China will require a stronger dose of stimulus to support growth, said Raymond Yeung, ANZ Research’s chief economist for Greater China.

“Looking ahead, we find little reason to expect a rebound in the near term on the back of a sluggish global electronics cycle,” he explained in the note, adding that Asia’s export figures are pointing to a “sobering” outlook.

That sentiment was echoed by Louis Kuijs, head of Asia economics at Oxford Economics.

“We expect subdued global trade and the impact of US tariffs to continue to weigh on exports in the coming months, although the tariff suspension by the US and China and increased likelihood of a more lasting agreement should help eventually,” Kuijs said in a note following Friday’s data release.

— CNBC’s Huileng Tan contributed to this report.

Here’s when and why daylight saving time started in the US

Here's when and why daylight saving time started in the US

On Sunday March 10 at 2 a.m., most Americans will set our clocks forward one hour. That means losing an hour of sleep but seeming to gain some precious sunshine.

Benjamin Franklin first introduced the idea of daylight saving time in a 1784 essay titled “An Economical Project.” But the modern concept is credited to George Hudson, an entomologist from New Zealand, who in 1895 “proposed a two-hour time shift so he’d have more after-work hours of sunshine to go bug hunting in the summer,” the National Geographic reports.

The concept resurfaced during WWI as a way to save energy. The idea was that people would spend more time outside and less time inside with the lights on at night and, therefore, conserve electricity.

“But it was only done during the summer,” Vox reports. “Otherwise, farmers would have to wake up and begin farming in the dark to be on the same schedule as everyone else.”

The law “to save daylight” was passed by Congress in 1918. After the war, however, state governments were left to decide whether they wanted to continue with the time change.

The law resurfaced during WWII but again, after the war, the time change decision was left to each state. Some states kept it and others abandoned it. Daylight saving time didn’t officially become a law until 1966, under the Uniform Time Act. Now, according to the Department of Transportation, daylight saving time reduces crime, conserves energy and even saves lives.

Still, not everyone is a fan. After all, “springing forward” and losing an hour of sleep can hurt workers’ productivity. Studies have shown that even one night of not getting proper sleep can have ripple effects: It can make you feel hungrier than usual, it puts you at greater risks for accidents while driving and at work, it can decrease your focus and it can makes you susceptible to catching a cold.

States can opt out of daylight saving time. Hawaii and most of Arizona already have. Another handful of states have considered or experimented with it. American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands also don’t observe daylight saving time.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, meanwhile, is introducing a bill to shift the entire country onto daylight saving time for good. “Studies have shown many benefits of a year-round Daylight Saving Time, which is why Florida’s legislature overwhelmingly voted to make it permanent last year,” Rubio said.

The idea of the Sunshine Protection Act has its adherents: Given that our current system of having to change clocks is “irritating” and potentially “perilous,” as one writer at Slate puts it, Florida’s version of the law is “the only good piece of legislation to emerge from Tallahassee so far this century.”

The Points Guy has 'a near perfect' credit score—here are the 3 cards he can't live without

Brian Kelly realized he had a knack for maximizing credit card rewards when he was working in HR at Morgan Stanley.

“My job was to go to around to all the college campuses and recruit the top computer scientists to join the bank,” he tells CNBC Make It, “so I was traveling like crazy, racking up tons of points. … I was traveling around the world to places like the Seychelles for free and people were finally like, ‘What trust fund are you on Brian?’

“There was no trust fund — it was just my points.”

In 2010, he started a blog to share his best travel and points advice. What started as “just a fun little side gig,” says Kelly, evolved into a lifestyle media brand that reaches millions of people across social media platforms and the Points Guy (TPG) website. Kelly quit his corporate job a year after his first blog post and sold the company to Bankrate in 2012, but he remained CEO.

Today, he remains the CEO of TPG and travels the world for next to nothing, thanks to the points he constantly racks up.

“I’ve got 25 credit cards and a near perfect credit score,” Kelly tells Make It, “but that’s because I really manage them. … A key thing with earning points through credit cards is you must pay your bill off in full every month. Otherwise, the interest that you pay will negate the value of those miles and points.”

Weight Watchers calls on Oprah Winfrey to help sell wellness

WW what?

Weight Watchers is scrambling to clarify its new name, WW, and mission after a poorly executed rebranding campaign left consumers confused and membership numbers tanking.

The 55-year-old company started using the shorter name last year in an attempt to embrace wellness — a buzzy but vague term intended to promote a healthier lifestyle that would attract and retain customers long after they achieved their target weight.

The message fell flat with consumers. Weight Watchers is now forecasting a 10 percent drop in membership during the first quarter, the crucial diet season after the holidays that can make or break a diet companies’ entire year, the company said in releasing its fourth-quarter earnings Tuesday. Shares plunged by roughly 35 percent Wednesday, erasing more than $48 million from Oprah Winfrey’s stake in the weight loss company.

“It’s gone from being a high flying growth company to being a beaten up kind of turnaround situation,”said Linda Bolton Weiser, an analyst at D.A. Davidson & Co.

Weight Watchers did not respond to requests for comment.

CEO Mindy Grossman told analysts Tuesday the company stands behind its strategy, blaming the results on a poorly executed marketing campaign. It’s now turning to Winfrey to help turn things around.

“If I was going to assess what the [problem] was, it wasn’t granular enough,” Grossman told analysts on a call Tuesday. “I think it needed to be more weight loss-focused, especially in the January season, and a more aggressive bridge from Weight Watchers to WW it needs to be more overt.”

Weight Watchers strayed too far from its core weight-loss mission too fast. Grossman assured analysts the company has already started massaging its message and will launch the new ad campaign with Winfrey this spring.

The stock market rally to start 2019 is one for the history books

Both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and Nasdaq Composite Index have yet to register a weekly decline so far this year. With more gains this week, both major indices are on a nine-week winning streak that started in the last week of the year. This would mark the first time since 1964 that the Dow has rallied in each of the first eight weeks to kick off the year. Throughout those weeks, the Dow jumped 7 percent which was about half of its 14.6 gain for that year. Total, the Dow saw a 13-week win

The stock market rally to start 2019 is one for the history books

The roaring rebound for stocks this year is about to make history.

Both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and Nasdaq Composite Index have yet to register a weekly decline so far this year. With more gains this week, both major indices are on a nine-week winning streak that started in the last week of the year.

This would mark the first time since 1964 that the Dow has rallied in each of the first eight weeks to kick off the year. The previous back-to-back week record was hit in 1964, when the Dow rose in all of the first 11 weeks through mid-March. Throughout those weeks, the Dow jumped 7 percent which was about half of its 14.6 gain for that year. Total, the Dow saw a 13-week winning streak that started in the last two weeks of 1963.

For the tech-heavy Nasdaq though, this marks the first time in history the index has risen in each of the first 8 weeks of the year. The index was founded in 1971.

The gains come after the worst December for stocks since the Great Depression. Since then, stocks have more than rebounded into the black.

The Dow has rallied 11 percent this year. On Friday, the 30-stock index broke above 26,000 for the first time since Nov. 9. The Nasdaq is up 13 percent this year and rallied 0.64 percent Friday, boosted by shares of Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Alphabet. Equities have been helped by optimism on another round of trade talks between the U.S. and China and signals from the Federal Reserve that it will be patient in raising interest rates.

— CNBC’S Fred Imbert contributed reporting.
