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?

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 »

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 …

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 »

I have signed up and paid for this service by Sean Hyman. It is promoted by a company called Newsmax. They have taken my money for the service,but have not acknowledged the payment and I have heard nothing from Sean. I signed up on Saturday 10/5/2014.I have written to Newsmax about this,and all I get back from them is,your e mail has been received you will be contacted shortly to 15/5/14 and have not heard anything? what do you suggest I do?

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 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 »

Buy when he says and lose 50%. He picks the downtrodden ON THE WAY DOWN. He doesn’t pick the bottom, ever. This is absolutely the worst newsletter I have ever had, I think he is here to teach us how to lose money. Wish I had my money back, all of it..the subscription the $$$ wasted on absolute dogs. He is educational, but what he is teaching are money losing strategies so far. The section of my portfolio dedicated to his recs is grossly, and I do mean grossly, underwater. Some examples ECA -57.8% RIG -47.78%, so far 1 has… Read more »

Should be called Absolute LOSS, geez! Asof FEB 2nd 2016
RIG -77%
ECA -74.69%
TAN -40.19%
Out of 12 stocks invested, 11 are negative and many significantly so. His one stock on the + side is only up 1.86%. This guy should be used as a contrarian indicator only…do the opposite of what he says and reap the rewards.

Agreed, I cancelled his subscription after losing 68% of my investment using his advice (only took me 28 months!).

His picks are VERY speculative. In fact two of his picks filed Chapter 11 and Chapter 7. Lost all investment on those.

He might be a nice guy but his picks are seriously terrible.

I too cancelled my subscription. The picks he had us hold on to have lost at least 70% of their value while the ones he said to sell have actually made money. Worst money I have ever spent.

He does not use a Stop Loss at all? It is pretty cheap to get back in a position when it warrants.

This service officially discontinued by Newsmax as of the last video update at end of April 2017. It says: “Sean is leaving to pursue other opportunities…”. No follow-up or wind down for invested subscribers. Poorly handled, disappointing and final financial results, at this point, lacklustre at best: 11 holdings; 7 with current positions ranging from -29.4% to -73.6% (includes reinvested dividends. Ouch! It is looking like his other newsletter with Newsmax, Ultimate Wealth Report, is likely slated to go the same way – e-mails were sent out May 4, 2017 to UWR subscribers telling us there’s a great offer coming… Read more »

I too believe it was handled very poorly, but i must say overall i am in the good on the picks he has provided me. I didn’t get into every stock he suggest and I’m UP!

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.

I wish Sean Hymen is barred from any advice. Two of his stocks tanked too bad, one made a little money, one was bit better. I wish he goes out of business. He is anyway not writing Absolute profit.
