Why you can trust Sky News

High street chain Claire's has removed three make-up products from its shelves after a warning they could be contaminated with asbestos fibres.

Officials in the US said samples from the retailer's eyeshadows, compact powders and contour palettes tested positive for the material.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) urged people on Twitter to stop using the items.

Asbestos is a known carcinogen with well-documented health risks, and the FDA says the mineral is often found near talc, a common ingredient in many cosmetics products.

The contamination can arise when raw talc has not been purified enough before being added to make-up.

The FDA, doesn't have the authority to order a recall and so issued the safety alert.

It stressed that there have been no reports of adverse reactions connected to the products so far.

Newton buys Best of the Best

Small cap hedge fund star David Newton has opened a position in Best of the Best (BEST), the business responsible for the sports cars prominently displayed as raffle prizes in airport departure lounges.

Newton took a 3% stake in the company worth around £190,000 at a share price of 69.5p. Shares in the business are up 230% over two years but have essentially stalled over 12 months.

The holding is owned by his Helium Rising Stars fund, a concentrated 15-stock mandate launched in 2014, which hunts for investments believed to be approaching a significant catalyst for growth.

House broker Charles Stanley reaffirmed its rating of the company on a buy in January, with a price target of 90p.

In interim results to the end of October, Best of the Best reported an 8.5% increase in revenues and a 63% increase in profit before tax to £360,000, alongside the launch of a franchise agreement to begin operating within Indian airports.

Re post 4634. Just listened to Jim and it was the best one yet and a lot of questions that I would love to ask Jim were answered in the Q&A session at the end.
Thanks Trader.

4th Aug'14 - see above - "I doubt it's Third World War; but gold, oil are best plays in such times: Jim Rogers"

Hmm - not the best of calls it would seem, nor his agricultural calls either with most cereals close to multi-year lows.

Jim Rogers: 'Depressed' palladium one of best commodity investments

"In 1987 stocks were down 40-80 percent worldwide and it took a long time for it to get above pre-correction levels but the bull market was not over," said Rogers. "We are seeing the same normal correction happening in commodities now. But we have not seen enough supply come on stream yet in any commodities sector, except maybe iron ore or something like that, to bring supply and demand back in balance."

Despite these points, Rogers still refuses to call a top in the commodity market. In fact, the bestselling author of "Hot Commodities" believes commodity prices will continue to rise in the months to come. However, investors should be cautious because commodities could possibly conclude in a bubble by the end of the bull market, which normally happens.

Insurers May Face $11 Billion More in Asbestos Claims -A.M. Best
PrintAlert
Hartford (NYSE:HIG)
Intraday Stock Chart
Today : Monday 17 December 2012
By Erik Holm
U.S. insurers may face $11 billion more in asbestos-related costs than they were anticipating, according to a new study that warns claims on decades-old insurance policies show no signs of abating.
The insurance industry has already paid out about $51 billion in claims tied to asbestos over the past quarter century, and has $23 billion set aside for future expenses. But the report from ratings firm A.M. Best concludes the ultimate cost of such claims will eventually hit an estimated $85 billion. That's up from $75 billion in its previous estimate, published last year.
The increasing cost of each claim, the recent successes of plaintiffs' attorneys, and the long latency periods for some of the more serious illnesses caused by the once widely used mineral mean "sizable losses are likely to continue for years," A.M. Best said in the report, due to be released this week.
Insurers with significant exposure to asbestos claims include Hartford Financial Services Group Inc. (HIG), Travelers Cos. (TRV) and Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRKA, BRKB), which has taken on billions in asbestos liabilities in recent years through reinsurance deals with American International Group Inc. (AIG), CNA Financial Corp. (CNA) and Lloyd's of London.
While it hasn't been widely used since the late 1970s, asbestos was once common in a variety of building materials and other products, and valued as a fireproofing and insulation material until it became clear that it presented a significant health hazard.
The diseases it can cause--asbestosis, mesothelioma and others--can take decades to present themselves, so new cases continue to emerge many years after people were exposed. Therefore, insurers are still paying out on the coverage they sold in the decades when asbestos was in wide use.
An extra $11 billion in unexpected costs over the course of several years wouldn't be enough to cripple the insurance industry, but investors have reacted poorly in the past when companies have announced major additions to reserves on longstanding liabilities like asbestos.
At $11 billion, the asbestos shortfall would equal about half the estimated cost of Sandy, the massive storm that struck the Northeast in late October.
Insurers are posting nearly $2 billion in losses each year and the "loss trend remains worrisome," according to an advance copy of the report.
"The plaintiff's bar has experienced success in eroding some reforms, as well as focusing on obtaining higher judgments for the more serious cases involving mesothelioma," wrote A.M. Best analyst Gerard Altonji. "Given the long latency period between exposure to asbestos and the manifestation of mesothelioma, as well as the very large number of people exposed over a great many years...it is likely that asbestos losses will continue to develop for many years to come."
