About Absolute Profits System

Author Sean Hyman claims that his Absolute Profits System will provide you with a “secret calendar” that “generates consistent, predictable, and reliable results… nearly 100% of the time.” Sean claims that this calendar was initially developed by Wall Street insiders to take advantage of the ups and downs related to 19 different sector funds, which he has now made available to the public.

The Absolute Profits System is distributed by NewsMax based out of West Palm Beach, FL, which holds an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Unfortunately, we were unable to locate any online customer reviews specifically regarding the Absolute Profits System.

How the Absolute Profits System Works

The sales page for the Absolute Profits System is presented by its author, Sean Hyman, who is also the author of Biblical Money Code, and many others. Mr. Hyman begins with a story about Merrill Lynch that takes place in 1968. According to him, the company completed an “extensive study” that showed a recurring six-month up-and-down cycle, which if followed, would have allowed investors in different market sectors to have earned 250% more than the popular “buy and hold” strategy at the time. As a result, the Wall Street analysts that were part of the study “put their findings into a unique annual financial calendar,” which was distributed to “a very small inner circle of insiders.”

Sean now claims that he’s gotten his hands on a “rogue version” of this calendar, and this forms the basis of the Absolute Profits System. In it, Mr. Hyman claims that you’ll find out how to “hold on to each of the [19] sector funds [ETFs or mutual funds] for only two to six months,” at which point you’ll sell for a profit. Then, after the six-month down cycle has passed, you’ll once again purchase these 19 funds, and repeat the process. While Sean admits that there is no perfect system of making money, he claims to have partnered with a mathematician to create a superior version of this calendar that comes equipped with a “crash alert,” which can let you know “if the stock market was approaching a major crash.”

According to Sean, you can “increase returns to 21.49%” using the Absolute Profits System, which is “one of the simplest, most reliable, and predictable ways to invest your money.” He claims that it makes “money when times are good and when times are bad,” and that you simply have to “mark off the 38 dates on your calendar.” When this day arrives, you’ll “simply execute the investment.”

The Absolute Profits System is also claimed to help you pick the best stock out of the entire sector whenever it approaches its “prime season,” and includes the following:

  1. Email Trade Alerts that lets you know exactly when to buy and when to sell.
  2. Weekly Tuesday Update that contains a video explaining market occurrences and current positions.
  3. Monthly Absolute Profits Interview that will answer long-term strategy questions in a Q&A format.
  4. 24/7 access to the entire Absolute Profits library, which includes the active version of the Prime Season Calendar.
  5. Email Crash Alerts
  6. Training Videos on Sean’s various other investing concepts.
  7. “Free” bonus: Prime Season International Calendar, which will “show you exactly when you should invest in a country’s stock market.”

In addition, you’ll also receive the following special reports:

  • The 12% Guide to Capital Gains
  • The 12% Guide to Income

Bottom Line: Is the Absolute Profits System a Scam?

While we didn’t find any information that would lead us to believe that the Absolute Profits System is a scam, keep the following in mind:

The Absolute Profits System website uses a video to promote the program, which, despite its length, provides few details, and uses a lot of general statistics and emotion. In our experience, this is generally a red flag.

In addition, we were unable to locate any online customer reviews during our research. Because of this, it’s difficult to gauge overall satisfaction levels. However, some of Sean’s other investment systems, such as the Biblical Money Code, appear to have relatively low customer satisfaction ratings.

With this in mind, if you’re looking for a viable investment system, you may want to research some of the more popular methods that include positive customer feedback.

    Bad investment to get tangled up with this loser

    I am a FORMER subscriber to Absolute Profits and his other offering "Ultimate Wealth Report". Both programs caused me to lose $49,000.00 due to Andrew Packer and Michael Carr's bad advice. I advise you to be very, very afraid of his programs.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Sean Hyman is self service

    • Austin, TX,
    • Jan 29, 2016

    Sean Hyman is somewhat of a charlatan. He professes to be a financial prophet as he is a former preacher. I am upside down on 5 of the his predictions for over 2 years. Stay away from Absolute Profits and other sites that Sean Hyman is involved with.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Absolute Profits is a Scam.

    • California,
    • Dec 3, 2015

    I signed up for Absolute Profits in early 2014, and as promised received a copy of Sean's "secret calendar", which, in fairness, I got to keep after I canceled my subscription. My friend has a PhD in BioStatistics and does a lot of work with regression analysis, which is what Sean's "modified" calendar is supposedly based on. We back-tested the calendar's seasonal sector recommendations using regression analysis on the ETF's suggested, and the results in terms of up-years versus down-years weren't even close to what Sean claimed.

    Again in fairness, Sean claims that in addition to the seasonality, his system uses "technical analysis" and "sentiment analysis" to further vindicate the seasonal pattern. These buy signals are totally subjective interpretations of Elliot Wave Theory and MACD and RSI.

    That said, Absolute Profits is really just another of Sean's stock picking services. Supposedly all the seasonality info and "technical", "sentiment" and "fundamental" analysis theory is for subscribers' edification, and they're welcome to try it themselves. But they're also encouraged "not to worry about any of that" and just buy when he says to buy and sell when he says to sell.

    He would explain his reasoning behind buy recommendations, and oddly enough the calendar didn't have anything to do with it. In fact he was out for a while, and his mathematician buddy was doing the weekly videos and he responded to comments. Apparently other people were wondering why buy recommendations were being given for stocks whose sector was "out of season". Supposedly they looked at individual stocks' seasonality too, and that was often totally different from the sector's seasonality. Huh? Smells like nonsense to me.

    The recommended stocks I can remember did pretty badly. Deutsche Bank (DB) around $50/share (now around $25), Freeport McMoRan (FCX) around $30+share (now around $8), a Brent Crude ETF (BNO) in the $40s (now around $15), and a Physical Platinum ETF (PPLT) around $130-something (now around $81)

    I canceled my subscription a while ago, so I suppose he could have cut bait with those bad picks, and there were others that I don't remember.

    I do remember that he didn't really sound like he completely understood Elliot Wave Theory as well as he claimed. The commodities recs were all based on some triangle pattern he saw in the price movements. Evidently his wave count was off. I bought the Elliot Wave Principle book and after reading it confirmed my suspicion that he didn't know what he was talking about. He was just picking out peaks and valleys and never even mentioned what cycle he was supposedly counting in.

    I won't go so far to say that EWT is totally bogus, but it's certainly an "inexact science". Regardless, Sean's grasp of it was minimal at best.

    Potential subscribers would probably be better off using their $150 to buy a really nice dart set, and then tape the WSJ to it and throw darts.

    Again in fairness, there are plenty of people who believe this to be the case for any stock picking service or active investment manager.

    I digress.

    I never bought any of the stocks recommended and never lost anything beyond the first year's subscription fee. I was one of the subscribers trying to "learn" the system rather than just blindly buy and sell. I canceled my subscription without incident or difficulty.

    I don't have any ill will towards Sean or his newsletters. In fact I will give him some credit in that the "fundamental" analysis that he recommended (look for companies with low P/E ratios, strong cash positions, low debt, etc) was solid, but it's readily available from any number of other investment books or even free from the internet.

    The sound advice on fundamental analysis coupled with the genuine sense that I got from hearing him talk that he's pretty religious are the only two things keeping me from calling him a Charlatan. It's much more likely that he's just an idiot.

    Is this service even still around? I can't imagine he has very many customers left.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Following Sean's recommendation, after 6 months I am 40 percent down. And he is still calmly advises to keep the positions, every week. And they are still going down. Think twice to give him your money.

    Simple as that

    • US,
    • Aug 12, 2015

    Guys, there is no profit guaranteed system in stock markets and there will never be.

    If so, this guy would lend money, leverage his position and make billions of profit in a few months.

    Example: LTCM fund. Mr. Scholes created a system in the options market, start making a lot of money and then made a huge (and leveraged) mistake witch also crash the global financial system.

    So, if you want to make profits in the market, understand the business of the company you are trading, how it makes profit, and buy it only when it is undervalued (usually when everyone are desperate for selling it).

    Still waiting for my refund!

    I bought this system 1 year ago and have made an overall return of 4% so think about these 5 tips.

    1. If something is too good to be true, it usually is.

    2. He does not tell about any of his predictions that were total disasters so he is economical with the truth to say the least.

    3. If he was that good, all the fund managers, private traders and entrepreneurs would soon copy his system. Makes you wonder why they don't.

    4. Anyone who uses religious arguments for a financial product is a dangerous man.

    5. Finally, he must be a multi-billionaire by now and if he was, what does it matter to his dad if he lost a few thousand.

    PLEASE stay well away.

    Sean Hyman Loses Most of the Time

    • Fremont, CA,
    • Jul 21, 2015

    This was the worst mistake I ever made and it cost me a lot of money. It was completely false advertising. I lost over 50% of my money listening to this snake oil salesman. He has no talent whatsoever at picking stocks. His entire portfolio is comprised of big losses. Less than 1 in 10 of his picks win.

    The remaining 90% are big losses of 50, 60, and 70% He failed miserably at beating the market. They were total lies and the falsest advertising ever.

    Don't subsribe. Terrible picks.

    • Atlanta, GA,
    • Jul 20, 2015

    My 8-year old niece can choose better stocks than Sean Hyman. Look at his dismal track record unless, perhaps, he has removed the history on his terrible picks with double digit losses. Don't subscribe. Stay away from this incompetent scammer!

    More losers than winners. Be very careful with your money

    • Lakeland, FL,
    • Jul 15, 2015

    I am a subscriber to both APS (2014) and UWR (2013). Sean seems to pick his recommendations late and a lot of times holds them too long. I have had some winners but have more losers than winners. I will not renew my subscriptions when they expire and have already ceased trading on his recommendations.

    A losing system

    • Helsinki, Finland,
    • Jul 13, 2015

    I don't see how the calendar could have produced the advertised results. I checked some of the sectors, by looking at the prices on open/close dates in previous years. See it yourself. This is not generating any returns, but rather heavy losses. The weekly post is showing a portfolio of their recommendations. Most of them are in red, including both closed and open positions. My personal view is that I have been lied to in the promotional video, as regards the earning potential of the advertised Prime Season Calendar and their stock picks. I'd be an idiot if I followed their investment advice after seeing the real results on their web site.

    Absolutely terrible Stock Picks - Shut Them Down.

    • Atlanta, GA,
    • Jul 10, 2015

    Absolute Profits and its leader Sean Hyman need to be shut down. His investment advice is absolutely terrible. I cannot believe that he has the audacity to maintain a straight face in his weekly updates, considering how terrible his stock picks have performed and continue to perform, week after week. He recommends holding losers such as Transocean (RIG), which is down over 60% since he recommended buying it, and selling winners such as Lowes (LOW) which is up over 25% since he recommended selling it. Three of the five stocks in his current portfolio are in double-digit percent losing positions while the other two are only slightly positive. This guy should be ashamed of himself. He should refund all subscriber's money. He's a total loser.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      We estimate that subscribers will receive between 24 and 36 stock recommendations a year, and hold these stocks for three to six months each.
