To calculate a company's Moat Score, we look at its historical earnings growth, historical average return on equity, the volatility of its earnings stream, and also factor in the strength of its balance sheet. Our approach concludes the company's business moat is average. Our analysis of its moat reveals neither a durable moat or enduring competitive advantages. Interest coverage of 14.52x, a debt/equity ratio of 26% and a Moat Rank of 266 translate to a strong Financial Strength score.

This performance is average compared to other stocks in the S&P 500, earning it a rank of 288. Based on its 12 month stock performance, Aflac Inc will not appeal to momentum investors.
