Aflac initiated with an Underperform at Credit Suisse

Credit Suisse analyst John Nadel initiated Aflac with an Underperform due to relative share outperformance and expects that low global rates will pressure investment income while the growing disparity between U.S. and Japanese rates will cause an increase in hedging costs. Nadel established a $75 price target on Aflac shares.

DOWNGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Mosaic (MOS) downgraded to Reduce at HSBC by analyst Yonah Weisz, who said the challenging fertilizer markets of Q1 may now extend through the rest of the year. 2. Aflac (AFL) downgraded to Hold at Sandler O'Neill with analyst John Barnidge saying the catalysts he predicted would drive shares higher have largely played out. 3. Big Lots (BIG) downgraded to Hold at Deutsche Bank by analyst Paul Trussell, who said the retailer's margins could be pressured in the quarters ahead as Wal-Mart (WMT) accelerates price investment. 4. Boston Scientific (BSX) downgraded to Neutral at BTIG citing balanced risk/reward and some risks the surgical market could slow in Q1. 5. ViaSat (VSAT) downgraded to Sell at Drexel Hamilton by analyst Michael French, who said the company's premium valuation does not reflect risks to fundamentals.

Sell
Aflac initiated with a Sell at Evercore ISI
Evercore ISI analyst Thomas Gallagher started Aflac with a Sell rating and $63 price target. The market is overly focused on the benefit of a stronger yen and not enough on the negative impact created by negative government yields in Japan, Gallagher tells investors in a research note.

On The Fly: Top five analyst initiations
Catch up on today's top five analyst initiations with this list compiled by The Fly: 1.

Shake Shack (SHAK) initiated with an Underperform at Wedbush with analyst Nick Setyan saying he expects its valuation to continue to contract, given that the stock's current valuation implies a much larger sales opportunity than management's guidance. 3. Invivo Therapeutics (NVIV) initiated with a Strong Buy at Raymond James. 4. CBS (CBS) and Time Warner (TWX) initiated with a Buy at Brean Capital. 5. Disney (DIS), Viacom (VIA), and 21st Century Fox (FOX) initiated with a Hold at Brean Capital. This list is just a portion of The Fly's analyst coverage.
