  • FBR Capital Upgrades Aflac Inc. to "Outperform" (AFL)

    Insurance company Aflac Incorporated (AFL) was upgraded by analysts at FBR Capital on Tuesday, noting that the company's sales and solvency margin ratio data points should help the stock catch up to its peers. The analysts upgraded AFL from "Market Perform" to "Outperform" and now see shares reaching $71, up from its previous target of $60. This new price target suggests a 14.5% upside to the stock's Monday closing price of $61.99. "We are upgrading AFL to Outperform from Market Perform based on our view that sales data following the Japan Post deal, and better news on solvency margin ratio (SMR) management and yen repatriation, should help shares close their ~30% underperformance to the group year to date," FBR Capital analyst Randy Binner commented. Aflac shares were up 63 cents, or 1.02%, during pre-market trading on Tuesday. The stock is up 16.7% year-to-date.

    The Bottom Line

    Shares of Aflac (AFL) offer a dividend yield of 2.26% based on Monday's closing price of $61.99 and the company's annualized dividend payout of $1.40 per share. Aflac Incorporated (AFL) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.

  • Aflac Tops EPS, Revenue Estimates (AFL)

    Bellwether insurance provider Aflac (AFL) announced its second quarter earnings after Tuesday's closing bell. The Georgia-based firm showed EPS or $1.90 and revenues of $5.9 billion, far exceeding the marks analysts set with an EPS of $1.51 and revenues of $5.83 billion. CEO Daniel P. Amos noted that Aflac's Japanese sales were lower for the quarter, with the depressed yen doing little to help. The remainder of the outlook delivered by Amos painted a somewhat foggy picture for the Japanese aspect of the business, as the yen will have a major say in whether or not the overall company is able to meet its goal of growing EPS 4% to 7% for FY 2013. Aflac shares were down 16 cents, or 0.26%, at Tuesday's close. The stock is just 1% away from its 52-week high. The Bottom Line Shares of Aflac (AFL) are currently yielding 2.3% based on Tuesday's closing price of $60.85. Aflac (AFL) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.
