I received a pitch from Sean Hyman (Newsmax) who is part of Ultimate Wealth Report investing with biblical codes, about the Prime Season Calendar. According to him you should make a 21.49 % annual returns by investing according to this calendar. The initial newsletter, Absolute Profits cost $147.00 but when you click off you are offered a special deal without the newsletter for $19.95. Has anyone heard of this pitch?
We could all be rich if it is true!!!!!!! WOW.

I just saw the Prime Season Calendar, pitch, too. Now it’s called “The Ultimate Profits System”. The graphs and info looked pretty convincing. I know, it’s a sales letter, so that’s the way it’s supposed to look. But unless they were making up the graphs and info, it really did look good. For $19.95 I might give it a try, but I’d sure like to hear about anyone else’s experience with it. P.S. Please limit replies to just *your experience* with *this product*. If you haven’t bought it and tried it, please comment someplace else. Thanks.

Greg; I have the US sector prime season calender (By Sean Hyman) on my refrigerator. I got it free with my subscription to Ultimate Wealth Report. I am also a subscrber to Sean’s other service, “Absolute Profits”. The calender makes sense to me, but i dont use it,because I know Sean uses it,as well as fundamental,technical,and sentiment analysis for his stock picks. I am so pleased with his news letter, I just subscribed for two more yrs. for each service! Sean tells us what to buy & when to sell!!! I like that,& wwith his picks,I sleep verywell,& don’t have… Read more »

Ken…are you actually investing based on Sean Hyman’s program?
If yes, how long have you been doing it and what kind of returns have you seen?

Thank you for that Ken. I did subscribe to Sean Hyman’s Absolute Profits weekly updates. Sad to say I was able to view only five such updates. The new ‘monthly’ log on code never arrived, and so I was unable to access further information, and my pleas to them went unanswered. Rightly or wrongly I wrote it off as a scam. Pity, because the information had been useful, and three of four recommendations were profitable.

I haven’t seen the product yet, but I do have some info. If you start to close the main order page, you’ll get taken to an OTA (one time offer) page that gives you a chance to order just the Prime Season Calendar for $19.95/year with auto renewal every year, unless/until cancelled. I haven’t purchased it yet, but I wrote to their customer service dept. and asked for the chance to buy just the calendar without auto renewal. I said I never allow auto renewals on my credit cards. After about a week, I just got an email from a… Read more »

When I say “start to close the main order page”, I mean, start to close that tab on your browser. Click the “X” to close it. You’ll get a small pop up window that asks if you really want to leave the page. Choose “no” or “stay on page”. Then you’ll see the OTA page where you can get the Calendar for $19.95.

Greg, I subscribe to both newsletters. I have been with UWR since September 2013 and Absolute Profits for just 1 month. UWR clearly states it’s goal is 12-18 months for each pick, so it will take time to see how successful it is. I like how much time Sean takes to educate subscribers, it is like enrolling in a course. He is redundant because new subscribers are always joining. So far with UWR I have had a few positions that i have sold, the best returning 27% and some others returning 13-15% in less than 6 months that is good.… Read more »

I am wondering why this is made public now. I am not typically a conspiracy theorist, but i am seeing this video for the first time on the heels of multiple suicides of investment bankers. Some predict a crash in mid-March. I am wondering if this was not released by a rogue insider, but a well-calculated tool to bolster consumer confidence on the horizon of another crash. i am not expert on the subject, but try to look deeper before i make any decisions.

I just saw the video of Sean Hyman about the Ultimate Wealth Report investing with the Prime Season Calendar. I’m trying to understand the system before I order it. D you pay the $147.00 annual for the premium membership and buy his picks?

You pay the 147 for a one year membership.

Initially you get access to some documents that teach the basics of investing.

Every Tuesday, he makes a video that reviews his pics and he tells you what to buy and what to sell. I’ve been a member for a month and I look forward to the videos each week.

I’ve been a subscriber to Sean’s Ultimate Wealth Report for about a year and more recently to Absolute Profits. As I understand it, Sean’s Absolute Profits was created during the 4th Qtr last year for investment opportunities geared toward short term investments. Ultimate Wealth Report is geared toward longer term investments (12 to 18 months) that basically relate to commodity and currency investments. There have been exceptions. Sean uses good fundamental reasons for choosing his picks. After that he’s more into evaluating the progress of those picks based on where they are on the cart using the Elliott Wave theory.… Read more »

I sat for the best part of an hour listening to Hyman’s waffle, ostensibly about the Prime Season Calendar and how wonderful it was. He showed the same graphs at least 8 times and, by the end of all that, I was disbelieving him more and more. The purpose of the whole effort was to sell his newsletter which advises investments over far longer periods than the 6 months he was advocating in the Calendar. He failed to convince me. All results were based on back testing, therefore can be fiddled. What he failed to do was to show what… Read more »

Sell in May and go away, come back on St Leger day (that’s a decades old London Stock Exchange maxim). There. I’ve saved you loads of money. The video basically shows the January effect (which is not confined to January, btw) – i.e. buy in November, sell in May, stay in cash for 6 months, buy in November …

I’ve been a subscriber for a month and I like it. He buys companies that are fundamentally sound and waits for a technical indicator that signals a buy. Then he advises his subscribers to buy and updates them when it’s time to sell.

There’s a new video every Tuesday that reviews his pics and summarizes the changes in price. I paid 147 and I think it’s well worth the money. I’ll probably subscribe again when it expires.

Dear Dummies, please observe these simple three rules.
Rule 1: If something sounds too good to be true, it is. Addendum to rule 1: There is no free lunch.
Rule 2: If this dude and his so-called maths genius really could make guaranteed profits, why on earth would he be doing it for you?
Rule 3: People have been trying to predict the future for thousands of years. To date, nobody has gotten it right. Ask Nostradamus.

The system to my Knowlege does not exist on Wall St. Having worked on WALL St for over 35 years @ 2 major firms & handled Many institutional as well as employee accounts I have never seen this system in practice. I also was a member on the MTA ( MARKET TECHNICAN ASSOCIATION and if anyone Had this system our members would know about it and use it. In summary, my challenge to Mr Hyman is, SHOW US YOUR PERSONAL ACCTS & Let us see your results. Another item, right before the tech bubble, Morgan Stanley back tested the technology… Read more »

Sean does show ALL the results including all important details, (no matter how good or bad they are, yes there are a few that are quite down at this point, so they are a better entry point), and he never claimed that he buys at the very bottom. When I first bought AWR, while following it, I waited for about 4 months before investing. So far, I like Sean better than 98% of prior guys and his price is a very low risk. Yes I have bought one of his suggestions and am tempted to sell it as it is… Read more »

There are precedents for the success of the kind of seasonal effects Hyman is talking about – most notably the “January Effect”, first identified in the 1940s. But as Burton Malkiel (ex Vanguard) notes in his classic analysis of all methods of investing, “A Random Walk Down Wall St”, while the January Effect did work for a while, market efficiencies have driven the benefits down to below transaction costs. The same is most likely true of Hyman’s calendar in the medium/long term. As someone once said, effective investment strategies are like vampires: they whither and die if they ever see… Read more »

I am a subscriber to both the UWR and to AP. I have found both services very satisfactory. I have invested a significant portion of my own assets on his recommendations and am confident that these are good companies that are priced at a good value at his recommended entry price. As another commenter pointed out, getting in at a limit price of 7-10 percent below is a pretty good strategy – neither SH nor anyone else can call a bottom reliably, but I’ve missed out on some winners with that strategy too. My activity so far has been profitable,… Read more »

I’ve been a subscriber to AP for 6 months now and am also happy with the service. I have refrained from investing too high a portion of my assets to see how it works and I think this should give anyone considering the program a clue! If you use your own intelligence in stock picks & decisions when to buy & sell along with the information provided within AP, you should overall come out positive. As bumbul quite rightly says: “I think the greater value of the service that he provides is in his analysis of sentiment, technicals, and fundamentals,… Read more »

you are so wrong Zdenko I have been a subscriber to UWR since Oct 2013. In the year 2014 I sold 8 stocks for a 21% overall return on investment. A high of 59% and a low of 13% (because I got in on this one stock later and at a higher cost than Sean recommended.) I was happy with the 13% on a 90 day investment. To try his system out I bought 100 shares of the 22 stocks Sean recommended. I sold 1 stock at 28% in 30 days, 8 stocks in 2014 and am looking forward to… Read more »

??? With all due respect Mary, Sean’s UWR has been atrocious. Its gotten so bad he has removed the percentage performance of each stock. Almost all of his active stock picks are significant losers. Like 70% + losers. I wish I never found his service. In a market that has averaged 20% over the last 5 years, Sean has found a way to pick 70%+ losers. This man should not be giving any investment advice. My portfolio has gotten obliterated. Why he’s still in business I have no idea.

I couldn’t find him on the Forbes Rich list so his system can’t be that great. If it was he would have borrowed a few million to invest and be a billionaire by now. I guess he doesn’t believe in his own ‘magic’.

I just UNsigned AP, and am probably not renewing UW. I get the logic- buy good cos. that are beaten down and have low pe’s….in unloved sectors….well that’s great until you realize there are no real timing guidelines, the stocks are FAR FROM THEIR BOTTOM. plus they are mostly megacaps…in short, the stocks I bought on his advise are the REDDEST assets in my acct. I’ve managed to get out of a few when they got back up to my buy price, but Newmont is killing me. You can see the portfolios in each service have lots of stocks that… Read more »

If Sean Hyman is so profitable with his system, why isn’t he giving it away FREE to other people? Answer: because it really does not work well and Sean and Newsmax are simply making extra money. This is nothing new.

I tried seasonal investing before using stocks(from another website). Perhaps this worked well in the past, but it certainly does NOT now. Like other reviewers have said above, there is no magic system.

I’ve always done my own investing and have done just fine. All mistakes are my own. All profits are my own.

Do your own investing if possible.

I lived in South Africa for nearly 20 years and know the market quite well. Some, especially metals, mining and energy stocks have done well at various times, and I see no reason why Shaun would not invest in these stocks or others as long as they matched his criteria and risk profile. In the meanwhile, many of the largest cap firms have reincorporated elsewhere, mainly in Europe, so there is actually somewhat less opportunity in South Africa than before.

I have been a member of absolute profits for about 3 months and I am very unimpressed. Looking at their current holdings they are down a large percentage and their closed positions also performed poorly. Based on my calculations if you had followed all of their recommendations you would be down a lot of money. The website talks about previous very good long term returns however, not of that has happened for quite a while. Take the free sample, see what you think and then run the other way.

I have spent the past year reading and experimenting with several so called experts at this. The main ones – motley fool, absolute profits, O’Leary, Cramer. Out of all of them, the one that I feel understands the market the best and provides the reality and complexity of what we’re wrestling with is Cramer. You have to do your own work and buy companies / sectors you believe in at the right time based on economic factors currently at play. The market for the foreseeable future will be volatile and chaotic. Cramer and his team don’t always get it right… Read more »

Sean gives a thorough review of all his stocks each week in his video and comments on the general stock market. A new recommendation from 1/22/2015 was up 25% as of 2/13/2015, 3 weeks later. His recommendation on Transocean was too early, but the stock has gone up dramatically recently. I have just been in a few months and made money on his now closed Cisco recommendation.

There are many negative comments here regarding Sean and his system and I think many are missing a major point of trading – there is never a fool proof system which wins ALL the time. All systems have drawdowns (periods where they lose money) what is important is to evaluate the maximum drawdown and see if that is tolerable for your own risk management. I have been trading for 15 plus years and have developed many systems and had to change them because the market changes constantly, it can take several months to develop and test in real time prior… Read more »

Sean comes across as very sincere but his results speak for themselves. His Brazilian stock picks are all 50%+ losers. BTU is a 90%+ loser. And the thing is he never sells the losers. He pulls up his charts every week, cites Elliot Wave Theory and then finishes every stock with “it will go up from here and take out its previous highs”. Invariably a month later the stock is lower and he says the same thing…. Its clear this man doesn’t invest his own money with these stocks. I’ve lost thousandths following his horrible picks.

Just like D Smith above says, there are no winners with his picks, always a positive analysis while the stocks keep regressing. I have lost 30% of my portfolio with his stock picks. Today he has two gainers in his portfolio 6 and 10% the other 8 are all losing money hand over fist, biggest loser is at 69%. The service may be cheap but unfortunately you get what you pay for. I am so sorry I took the bait.
