Expect AFL to outperform with the outlook of Japan's economy getting better with AFL's growth being heavily reliant on the Yen conversion

Always been steady no risk performer. Now opening local branch offices in select cities. Aflac has a good P/E coupled with nice dividends.

I can't believe it's been three years since this call. I bought AFL on weakness around the Japanese tsunami thinking that the stock would bounce back quicker than expected. It hasn't turned out that way with the call trailing the S&P 500 by 20%. I'm still standing by AFL as I like the management and cash flow to outpace the S&P from here.

Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:

- A payout ratio below 50%
- An increasing dividend from the prior year

Because there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.

Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).

Little competition in the US, hugely loyal customer base in Japan. This company has a license to print money.

This is a well run company which unfortunately does 80% of its business in Japan. It needs to grow its business in the U.S. because the weak yen has a negative effect on its bottom line. It will take more than 4 years for the U.S. side of the business to grow to a larger percentage of the total. The yen will continue to be "soft" during this time period and will continue to have a negative effect.

Seems to be passing my sniff tests.

Good:
- Growing defensive profits
- Earnings power
- Seems undervalued with enough margin of safety (buy under 72)
- Insurance company!

Bad:
- Bad altman-z? (could be an issue with my calculation)

Exceptionally we'll run company. Quietly executing without much competition in this niche. Good cornerstone investment for a portfolio, dividends dominate.
