    A moderate late-session bounce in the S&P isn't helping many in the insurance sector stuck near the day's lows. Of particular interest is Aflac (AFL -4.1%) as the yen slides and the JGB market encountered a brutal selloff last night. The company presumably has significant exposure to both, but also presumably is hedged? PRU -3.4%, HIG -3.2%, LNC -2.4%.

    Aflac (AFL -1.3%) is downgraded to Hold at Sterne Agee, which says the big weakening in the yen will have a negative impact on profits. Sterne also sees downside risks to profit margins in Japan. Wait for a better buying opportunity, say the analysts.

    Aflac (AFL) is rated a "Buy of the Week" by AAII's Charles Rotblut, who says negative sentiment due to fears about exposure to Europe are overblown (shares have gained 32% in 6 months - give my portfolio some of that negative sentiment). The stock trades at 8.6X earnings vs. the industry median of 10.3X.

    Knight Capital (KCG -10%) plunges on word of technical issues with a trading algorithm. The NYSE apparently halted (then resumed) trading in a number of stocks swung around by the issue. Among those reportedly affected was Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B).
