    So Aflac (AFL) wants to be a player. The company brings on Timothy Stevens to head its newly created post of global head of trading. Stevens - formerly of BlackRock - will report to CIO Eric Kirsch, who came over last year from Goldman Sachs. Also joining is Brad Dyslin - who worked with Kirsch at Deutsche Bank - to be global head of credit at Aflac's just-opened investments office in NYC. (PR)

    More on Aflac (AFL): Q4 misses estimates across the board, despite a 25% Y/Y rise in revenue on higher premiums in Japan and fewer investment losses. The company issues a cautious outlook for 2012 however, forcasting operating earnings that are below Street expectations. Shares +0.4% AH.

    Aflac (AFL -3.7%) is cut to Sell from Neutral at UBS with a reduced price target of $34 from $39, citing remaining overexposure to Europe despite de-risking efforts. UBS also flags the potential for decelerating EPS growth at the insurer, in part because the company could slow share buybacks if significant European credit losses materialize.
