By Shiri Gupta

Below are the three companies in the Life & Health Insurance industry with the lowest forward earnings yields. Using projected earnings for the current fiscal year, the forward earnings yield is useful to compare a stock's return vs. owning a similar stock or other yield assets (e.g. bonds). Generally, the higher the earnings yield, the more undervalued the stock.

Primerica Inc ranks lowest with a forward earnings yield of 5.8%. Following is Torchmark Corp with a forward earnings yield of 7.1%. Aflac Inc ranks third lowest with a forward earnings yield of 8.5%.

Fbl Finl Group-A follows with a forward earnings yield of 9.6%, and Metlife Inc rounds out the bottom five with a forward earnings yield of 10.8%.
