The AT-4 is a stock pitch that Dr. Stephen Leeb has been talking up for the last few years. It’s a revolutionary new way to invest in stocks, and it doesn’t require you to buy any shares of the company—just one share of an ETF that tracks all publicly traded companies.
Hello, and thank you for visiting. Today, we’ll look at a presentation titled “Reset 2021” by Dr. Stephen Leeb, which I just found through email.
The general tone of the presentation was depressing, and it discussed some of the problems confronting America, such as increasing unemployment, social unrest, and the expanding income disparity.
Dr. Leeb claims that we are on the verge of a “$118 trillion reset” that would “kill millions of employment,” and that technology innovation is at the heart of it.
He believes that new technology will be the cause of many people losing money in the future, but that those on the “right side of technology” would be rewarded with a “wonderful opportunity.”
He goes on to explain that one business is more or less essential to the potential arising from the “tech reset,” and that it provides a “rare substance” known as “AT-4,” which he claims may help you earn a 306 percent return over the next five years.
We’ll look at what Dr. Leeb is forecasting, what his “AT-4” stock choice is, and if the service he’s selling (The Complete Investor) is worth it in this article.
Prediction of Dr. Stephen Leeb’s “Reset 2021”
The “Reset 2021” presentation is basically a “warning” about how a “Historic $118.6 Trillion Shift” may leave millions of Americans behind.
Investing Daily, www2.investingdaily.com/plp-tci-reset
Dr. Leeb starts by highlighting some of the most concerning problems confronting Americans today, but from a conservative, right-leaning perspective.
From New York to Chicago to San Diego, he speaks on how the formerly “clean, lovely streets” are now characterized by “pockets of squalor and misery.”
He also discusses violence, social unrest, record unemployment, failing small companies, increasing government and family debt, and other issues.
And then he sums it up like this:
The United States of America, as we know it, is on the verge of collapse…
Liberty is under jeopardy.
And many others, through no fault of their own, are at danger of losing everything in the coming months.
It’s both depressing and frightening.
Dr. Leeb presents an ominous picture.
In some ways, it reminded me of Dr. Eifrig’s lecture on “Financial Lockdown,” which I just wrote about. The general “doom and gloom” storyline is similar, although Dr. Leeb does not highlight inflation as a major worry, unlike Dr. Eifrig.
Instead, he blames an ever-widening income gap between the “haves” and the “have nots” in America on “breakthrough technical innovation.”
And, as a consequence of technology, there are “new rules of obtaining riches.”
Dr. Leeb believes that whether or not you participate in the development of technology as an investor is more essential than working hard. According to him, this will decide whether “your next 20 years are spent in poverty or in the sort of financial luxury you’ve only ever dreamt of.”
Dr. Leeb’s general thesis on how technology is causing a “split” in America is quite similar to what Louis Navellier and Eric Fry discuss in their presentation at the 2021 Tech Supercycle Summit.
The essence of Dr. Leeb’s argument is that technology will only become faster as time goes on. In the process, millions of jobs will be lost due to automation, but those who put their money in the proper stocks will profit.
Technology is consuming livelihoods throughout America, regardless of industry.
This is the start of the technology reset…
This will result in the abolition of millions of middle-class employment…
And this is why, if you want to make it through this reset, you need to start investing now…
Stocks that will put you on the winning side of the tech boom…
Opportunities to multiply your money… Even a $1,000 investment may yield $4,060 or more.
Dr. Leeb believes that the greatest tech breakthroughs and stock gains are still ahead of us, contrary to popular belief. Instead, he claims that technological innovation is speeding up across the globe.
Ray Kurzweil’s Law of Accelerating Returns, he says, helps to understand why.
This “law” is based on the exponential development of technological innovation. To put it another way, it’s about how fast technical development is advancing.
Dr. Leeb illustrates this idea by describing how two inventions (the wheel and fire) took thousands of years to develop, while we today witness world-changing technology advances every few of years. Space travel, genetics, computers, and artificial intelligence are just a few examples of how technological innovation is speeding up.
According to Dr. Leeb, a “significant amount of money is up for grabs” as a result of this technical shift, which may result in a “$118 trillion technological reset.” I’m not sure how he arrived at the $118 trillion number, although he does cite McKinsey Global Institute study.
Overall, the McKinsey Global Institute predicts that this collision of innovation would produce more than $118 trillion in economic effect across a wide range of sectors, including…
The only research I could locate that mentions this number is McKinsey Global Institute’s “$118 Trillion and Counting: Taking Stock of the World’s Capital Markets,” published in 2010.
The entire value of the global financial stock, which includes bank deposits, government and private debt instruments, and equities, is now $118 trillion, according to the study.
I’m not sure whether this is the study he’s referring to, therefore I’m not sure how he got up with the $118 trillion number. Dr. Leeb, on the other hand, thinks that technology will have a major effect on society and disrupt a broad variety of sectors.
He also claims to be aware of a “particular tech investment that may convert every $1,000 invested into $4,060 or more,” which he claims “really stands out as an amazing chance in this new era.”
And it seems to be related to what he refers to as “AT-4.”
What Is Dr. Leeb’s Teasing About The “AT-4” Stock?
Dr. Stephen Leeb says there’s one business he’s especially bullish on as part of his “tech reset” thesis, which he claims controls 90% of America’s supply of “AT-4,” during his presentation.
What does “AT-4” stand for? What does this have to do with his stock pick?
As far as I’m aware, the name “AT-4” does not exist; it was created by Dr. Leeb as part of the presentation. And he never says what stuff he’s talking about.
He does claim, though, that it’s a rare “miracle” tech substance and that it’s the ultimate tech “building block.” He also provides some particular details regarding its intended use:
5G INTERNET: It’s six times stiffer than steel pound for pound, with a strength-to-weight ratio of 200,000 to 1, and may be utilized as a conductor in cutting-edge wireless infrastructure.
MEDICINE: Because it’s non-magnetic and x-ray transparent, it’s ideal for MRIs.
DEFENSE: Because it is lighter than aluminum and has a greater thermal conductivity, it is ideal for long-range missiles, guidance systems, and armor-piercing bullets.
AERONAUTICS: It has a melting point of 2,349 degrees and is highly stable at low temperatures, making it suitable for interstellar exploration and even deep-space observatories.
When employed in alloys, the X-FACTOR may harden and strengthen other substances.
Based on these hints, it seems that when Dr. Leeb mentions “AT-4” during the lecture, he is referring to beryllium, a delicate, silvery-white, low-density metal.
I’m not an expert in beryllium, but it seems to fit Dr. Leeb’s description of “AT-4” and its applications. It’s stronger than steel, non-magnetic, transparent to x-rays, utilized in aeronautics and defense, and has a long list of additional uses.
And after I found out that “AT-4” was beryllium, all I had to do was locate a firm with a market value of $1.3 billion that controls about 90% of the metal’s supply in the United States.
To conclude, these are some of the most important hints he gives regarding the business:
Because the business I’m referring to is the world’s only manufacturer and distributor of a rare, “miracle” substance that’s critical to dozens of technological breakthroughs.
Now consider this: the business I’m referring to is proudly American, and it’s based in Utah, where it controls 90 percent of the material’s supply in the United States.
In fact, its final financial figures for 2020 showed a cash excess of $101 million…
In addition, their income for 2020 was a whopping $1.17 billion…
Their current market capitalization is approximately $1.3 billion.
In fact, you can buy shares in their company for about the same amount as a night out on the town for two.
I think the stock he’s teasing is Materion Corporation, based on these hints (MTRN).
Materion identifies itself as a “advanced materials provider” that began in 1931 as Brush Beryllium Business, according to their website’s company history page.
Do they have a monopoly on 90 percent of America’s beryllium supply?
I’m not sure what proportion of beryllium they hold, but according to a tucson.com story, they’re the country’s biggest beryllium supplier:
Materion Corp. is the sole company in the United States that produces beryllium ore. With a confirmed 14,000 tons of beryllium deposits extracted via open pit, the Spor Mountain region in Utah is presently the biggest source of beryllium in the United States.
tucson.com is the source for this information.
Materion Corp. is also consistent with the other hints offered by Dr. Leeb throughout the presentation. For example, the stock is now trading at about $70 (dinner for two remark), and the revenue forecast for 2020 is accurate.
I’ll leave it up to you to determine whether or not this business is worth investing in.
If you want to know for sure which stock Dr. Leeb is referring to in his presentation, you can read his special report, “Reset Riches: How to Make Up to 306 Percent During the $118 Trillion Tech Shift.” This study explains what stock he selected and why.
The article goes over seven reasons why he believes his suggested stock will “skyrocket through the reset,” as well as why now is the ideal time to purchase.
You’ll need to join his service, The Complete Investor, to receive that report.
The Complete Investor Overview
Dr. Stephen Leeb of Investing Daily runs The Complete Investor, an investing newsletter aimed at guiding investors through “good markets, poor markets, and tumultuous times.”
The monthly newsletter is the primary advantage of membership, but you also get access to tools such as the model portfolio, email updates, and bonus reports.
Each email includes “straightforward, practical methods that will help you invest in the brightest, most lucrative prospects out there,” according to Dr. Leeb. It also gives you an idea of his current economic perspective, as well as his most recent recommendations on when to purchase and sell.
The areas that The Complete Investor focuses on seem to be quite wide, but from what I can gather, they mainly revolve on technology, biotechnology, and natural resources.
This service also includes five other model portfolios: Growth, Small Caps, Fund Folio, Core ETFs, and Income. Dr. Leeb’s current recommendations and the information connected with each are shown in each portfolio. And each one caters to a certain kind of investor.
The majority of the services I’ve come across have just one portfolio. While having several portfolios does not necessarily make it “better,” it can provide a distinct advantage in that it enables you to build your portfolio based on your goals—for example, growth vs income.
It’s unclear how well the service has done over the last 13 years, but according to one page on the Investing Daily website, Dr. Leeb’s “top 5 core holdings” had returned 133.3 percent on average as of writing.
It’s also worth noting that if you join through the “2021 Reset” presentation, you’ll get the following extra reports:
- Reset Riches: How to Make Up to 306% on the $118 Trillion Technology Shift

Policy on Membership Fees and Refunds
A membership to The Complete Investor costs $199 per year, but if you join via the presentation we mentioned, you can get a one-year subscription for $39 or a two-year subscription for $78.
Aside from the extra year, the $78 option includes two bonus reports on mining companies that Dr. Leeb is optimistic on, according to the website.
- How To Profit Hugely From The New Gold Bull Market (Gold Spike)
- Arctic Profits is a little $9 company that may provide you a 20-fold return on your investment.
Is it possible to obtain a refund?
Yes, you may receive a refund if you cancel during the first 90 days.
If you’re not pleased with The Complete Investor service during the first 90 days, you may get a refund, according to the Investing Daily website.
According to the website, if the service doesn’t fulfill your expectations at any time, they’ll “prorate your price and reimburse you instantly for any unused months left on your subscription.”
This policy, in my opinion, is sound. It’s also one of the most thorough return procedures I’ve seen in this industry.
Dr. Stephen Leeb: Who Is He?
Dr. Stephen Leeb is The Complete Investor’s Chief Investment Strategist and also manages the Real World Investing program.
Dr. Leeb is the author of many books on the economy and financial markets, going back to the 1980s, according to his biography on the Investing Daily website, and has anticipated some of the most important market-related events in his works.
He predicted the secular bull market of the 1980s and the dot-com collapse of the late 1990s and early 2000s, for example. Similarly, his best-seller (The Coming Economic Collapse: How to Survive When Oil Costs $200 a Barrel) foresaw the subprime mortgage crisis of 2008.
Dr. Leeb is often cited in financial publications such as USA Today, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal, in addition to the popularity of his books. He also appears on CNN, Fox News, and Bloomberg on a regular basis.
The “Reset 2021” lecture by Dr. Stephen Leeb is all about the effect that new technologies, in his opinion, will have on society. In summary, he believes that as technology’s invention and acceptance increases, some individuals will become rich while others will become impoverished.
I think “AT-4” is a name he uses to denote beryllium, and the Utah-based firm he recommends may be Materion Corp., based on the presentation. But that’s simply my best estimate. You’d have to join his service, The Complete Investor, to find out for sure.
Is it worthwhile to join? In the end, I believe that whether or not Dr. Leeb’s service is worthwhile depends on your objectives and investment choices.
On the one hand, I believe he makes some excellent comments regarding the societal problems we face and the role of technology progress. I really appreciate his argument about how technology is rapidly advancing. I agree, and I believe that many people overlook this.
However, it remains to be seen if his insights will help you thrive as developments such as artificial intelligence and automation increase, and whether his “AT-4” stock choice would help you convert “every $1,000 into $4,060 or more.”
In any case, Dr. Leeb is a true financial guru. And The Complete Investor, his service, is genuine. So, if you like his presentation, you may be interested in his services.
In any event, thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope you found this information useful.
