Shares of AFLAC (AFL) have been quacking up lately, and they’re getting near the price level that’s been a tough ceiling for them.
First, some history. The duck stock made its all-time high on April 28, 2008, just before the financial crisis, when it closed at $68.22 per share.
Then things got bad. At the market’s low on March 9, 2009, AFLAC closed at $11.49 per share.
AFLAC then rallied back to somewhat near its 2008 high two more times. The shares closed at $67.47 on November 14, 2013. Then, on this past December 1, AFL closed at $65.99 per share.
The stock closed today at $65.53 per share. In the last two months, AFL has rallied 17.9%.
