Aflac price target raised to $48 from $44 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Mark Hughes raised his price target on Aflac to $48 after its Q4 earnings beat, also raising his FY19 EPS outlook by 10c to $4.20. The analyst cites the "continued strength in profitability within both Japanese and US operations and sustained share buybacks" for Aflac, but also sees its risks and rewards as "fairly balanced" at current levels, keeping a Hold rating on the shares.

Aflac downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Jimmy Bhullar downgraded Aflac to Neutral with an unchanged price target of $51. The analyst forecasts insurers to generate "healthy" margins in their foreign businesses, especially in Japan, but he adds that "lackluster" sales and negative currency moves present headwinds. He points out that Aflac has the most exposure to international markets among the names he covers.

Sun Life Financial upgraded to Buy at Argus on valuation
Argus analyst Jacob Kilstein upgraded Sun Life Financial (SLF) to Buy from Hold with a price target of $39, saying the company's valuation has become attractive after an 18% decline in the stock price since his last published report. The analyst cites Sun Life Financial's consistently strong earnings and above peer average ROE, along with some of its recent "small acquisitions" that should boost its earnings. Kilstein adds that his price target on the stock implies a forward earnings multiple of 10.5-times, which is still below the peer average of 11.7% valuation seen in the likes of Aflac (AFL) and Primerica (PRI).

JPMorgan sees attractive risk/rewards for life insurance stocks
Life insurance stocks offer attractive risk/reward profiles at current share levels, JPMorgan analyst Jimmy Bhullar tells investors in a research note. The analyst, who's been cautious on the sector for the past two years, says that while his fundamental view "remains mixed," the macro environment has improved, investor sentiment has become negative, and valuation levels are more reasonable following the group's significant underperformance. He maintains Overweight ratings on Aflac (AFL), Lincoln National (LNC), and Prudential (PRU) and reiterates his negative stance on Brighthouse Financial (BHF).
