AFLAC’s Earnings

AFLAC‘s (AFL) stock is getting beaten up in the after-hours market. The supplemental insurance company reported earnings of 66 cents a share (with insurers, the important number is operating earnings). This was a nice improvement over the 59 cents from last year, but it was a penny shy of expectations. The good news is that AFLAC guided higher for 2007. The company now sees EPS of $3.28 to $3.31.
