Glasspiegel ’77 makes WSJ’s ‘Best on the Street’

Bob Glasspiegel ’77

Bob Glasspiegel ’77, managing director and co-head of insurance research for Langen McAlenney, a division of Janney Capital Markets, was one of the Wall Street Journal‘s ‘Best on the the Street’—number one stock analyst in the life insurance category.

Recognized in eight prior surveys, he was notable this year for his pick to buy Torchmark Corp., which gave investors a 10 percent return.

“What interests me is figuring out if interest rates are going to stay low and for how long,” Glasspiegel told the WSJ. “I’m not ready to recommend names that depend on interest rates to go higher. I think rates are going higher ultimately, but not now.”

An economics major as an undergraduate, he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and later earned his MBA at Harvard.
