Aflac (AFL -5.4%) stands by its view that it doesn't expect a meaningful impact on earnings and it isn't changing its guidance for the year. The three hardest-hit prefectures represent less than 5% of Japan sales, CEO Daniel Amos says; investors are succumbing to "the tendency [to] look at the worst case." Shares take a beating anyway, along with MET -2.5%, HIG -3.7%, PRU -1.8%.

    If AFL is correct that it won't take any impact, then maybe this is a buying opportunity?
