Raymond James downgrades Aflac to Outperform on Japan Post issues
As previously reported, Raymond James analyst Gregory Peters downgraded Aflac to Outperform from Strong Buy, stating that its near-term sales outlook in Japan will be challenged as Japan Post works through allegations of agent misconduct that could limit new sales through the end of the year. Japan Post accounted for about 25% of Aflac Japan's third sector sales in 2018 and the companies announced an expanded relationship last year, noted Peters, who keeps a $62 price target on Aflac shares.

Aflac third sector sales estimate at risk due to Japan Post, says Evercore ISI
After the Mainichi reported that sources close to the company believe Japan Post mis-sold 104,000 Aflac cancer insurance policies, Evercore ISI analyst Thomas Gallagher called this a surprise, noting that both Aflac and Japan Post previously said they did not believe those policies were part of the sales mispractices found at Japan Post. He wouldn't be surprised if Aflac polices were suspended through Japan Post, at least until the systems issues are rectified, and said a "more severe outcome" would be if Japan Post includes a broader suspension of Aflac cancer sales until it completes its entire review. Gallagher, who said there may be some risk to his current third sector sales estimate of an 11% decline in 2019, keeps an Underperform rating on Aflac shares.

Citi opens 'Negative Catalyst Watch' on Aflac ahead of analyst briefing
Citi analyst Suneet Kamath opened a "Negative Catalyst Watch" on shares of Aflac ahead of the company's Financial Analyst Briefing meeting. The analyst believes Aflac will guide to ongoing pressure on Japan sales in 2020 and points out that the stock has generally underperformed around prior FAB meetings. Further, Kamath believes current consensus estimates already reflect margins and capital return toward the high-end of prior guidance. He lowered his 2020 earnings per share estimate to $4.40 from $4.45 and dropped his price target for the shares to $44 from $45. The analyst keeps a Sell rating on Aflac.

JPMorgan shifts Life Insurance view to negative from neutral
JPMorgan analyst Jimmy Bhullar shifted is view on the Life Insurance sector to negative from neutral ahead of the Q3 reporting season. His outlook for business fundamentals is "incrementally cautious" and he feels that consensus 2020 earnings estimates for most insurers are too high. In addition, stock prices do not seem to have reacted to the decline in interest rates, Bhullar tells investors in a research note. The analyst lowered his estimates for most companies, and his numbers for 2020 are now "considerably below" consensus on AIG (AIG), Hartford Financial (HIG), and Voya Financial (VOYA), but slightly above for Aflac (AFL) and Unum Group (UNM). For Q3, Bhullar thinks consensus estimates for Athene Holding (ATH) and Reinsurance Group (RGA) are" especially high," while numbers for Principal Financial (PFG) "seem conservative." Globe Life (GL) and Lincoln National (LNC) are the analyst's top picks and he remains negative on Brighthouse Financial (BHF).
