Short interest | Positive
Short interest is extremely low for AFL with fewer than 1% of shares on loan. This could indicate that investors who seek to profit from falling equity prices are not currently targeting AFL.
ETF/Index ownership | Positive
ETF activity is positive but appears to be weakening. Over the last month, growth of ETFs holding AFL is favorable, with net inflows of $12.56 billion. This is among the highest periods of net inflows seen over the last one-year, but the rate of additional flows appears to be decreasing.
PMI by IHS Markit | Negative
According to the latest IHS Markit Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) data, output in the Financials sector is rising. The rate of growth is weak relative to the trend shown over the past year, however, and is easing.
Credit default swap | Negative
The current level displays a negative indicator. AFL credit default swap spreads are near their highest levels for the past 1 year, which indicates the market's more negative perception of the company's credit worthiness.
