Updated 4/23/2014 – The primary reason I don’t recommend Absolute Profits or the Secret Stock Calendar from Sean Hyman is due to feedback from the readers here.
There are however some other products that have produced some very good feedback which we will cover in just a moment.
Please realize that these products, The Secret Stock Calendar and Absolute Profits, along with the Biblical Money Code are, only repackaged under different names to appeal to different markets.
That said, it makes me very skeptical that there is a need to re-market the same product in so many different ways in order to increase its perceived value.
Sean Hyman’s “Absolute Profits”
Rating: 3 (scale of 1 – 10)
There is some value here with Absolute Profits, at least for those who have investment funds ($500 +) on hand and can put those funds at risk without hardship @ 100% loss.

A product should “hold its own” weight and perpetuate itself based on the results, feedback, word-of-mouth advertising, and not be judged by its slick advertising campaign running on the Rush Limbaugh Show or the Glenn Beck Show.
Before you purchase Sean Hyman’s “Absolute Profits” Product, read all of the information collected here by the Moneymakerspy, free of charge. The Moneymakerspy is not in any way an affiliate of the Absolute Profits Product, or of Sean Hyman.
That said let’s look at some direct results and feedback on Absolute Profits as well as similar Stock Trading Strategy Products.
I invested a total of $1200 into 3 separate accounts ($400 each) with the idea of using a unique, purchased, stock investment product strategy on each account.
All accounts were opened within the same online trading company.
This was much harder than I expected, not the trading, but following a fair and balanced strategy with apples-to-oranges products and giving each account equal time towards research and development.
I began on 1/13/2013 and kept track for over 1 year until 1/30/2014
After one week of getting all of the funds invested based on the advice within each product, I then spent 1 hour per day , 3 times a week, on each account. The goal was to make at least 2-3 trades a week per account.
Since the products differ so much regarding what they actually offer as far as tools, advice, research, alerts, calendars etc. I pretty much had to accept the fact that I would be doing totally different things in each account and all that mattered was which account came out in the end with the most net profits after expenses (basically less trade commissions).
I kept track of each trade’s profit or loss and overall profit/loss. I omitted the highest profit trade and the biggest loss trade from each account after 13 months. Here are the results:
Trade profit percentage:
Total Account Balance after 13 months:
All 3 Products yielded over 100% ROI
Here is all of the additional information we have collected regarding Absolute Profits:
Absolute Profits is the original Stock Investment Strategy Training Product produced by Sean Hyman and is not dissimilar to the Biblical Money Code (see review of the Biblical Money Code here).
The only difference is that the Biblical Money Code is marketed as a system based on Bible Scripture. Both products base their foundation on the same principals, they are just marketed differently.
Transcript from Sean’s Sales Page:
Hello. My name is John Van Dalen, and welcome to a very special edition of Newsmax Financial.
In today’s presentation, we will expose one of Wall Street’s biggest money-making cover-ups.
You’ll see how a small inside group of money managers, top traders, and private investors have relied on a secret calendar to make consistent, reliable, and predictable profits that have beat the market by a factor of 250% over the last 4½ decades . . .
While at the same time . . . telling millions of clients who trust and invest with them to do the exact opposite instead!
But most importantly, we’ll make a public announcement at the end of this presentation . . . and reveal how you can personally get access to a superior copy of this secret calendar absolutely free with a unique offer . . . showing how you could beat the market like Wall Street insiders — and have the chance to turn every $1,000 you have into a $49,000 windfall.
Now, Newsmax Financial is no stranger to forecasting the market. We’ve been at this for over 10 years, working with some of the top financial minds, analysts, and savants . . . such as Steve Forbes, Jim Rogers, and T. Boone Pickens.
And our experts have been featured on CNBC, Bloomberg TV, and Fox Business.
Some of our best stock recommendations over the last decade have made 173% . . . 182% . . . and even up to 362%.
Now, as you well know, all investments carry risk and past performance in no way is indicative of future results. There is no such thing as a perfect system for making money.
However, what you’re about to see is unlike anything we’ve shared before.
This investing system, using a superior version of this secret calendar, generates consistent, predictable, and reliable results . . . like clockwork. In fact, it picks winners nearly 100% of the time.
And due to the sensitive nature of making claims related to forecasting and predicting the market — especially with returns like these and with near perfect accuracy — we felt it would be prudent to have the expert behind the research on this secret calendar, Sean Hyman, host this presentation himself.
Sean Hyman is the founder of the Absolute Profits system. He regularly appears on financial media like CNBC, Fox Business News, and Bloomberg TV. And he’s been known to make controversial and contrarian predictions on-air that come true with stunning accuracy.
In fact, he’s been laughed at more than once on national television in front of millions of viewers for his predictions! However, Sean always seems to get the last laugh.
Let me give you a few examples . . .
This Bloomberg clip from 2012 made headlines across the world. Here, Sean is predicting that the down-and-out stock Best Buy, which was trading $18 at the time, would drop to $11 and then rally up to $40.
Now watch as another analyst on the show laughs at Sean and says, “That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard” . . .
Of course, Sean had the last laugh. Soon after this video interview, Best Buy dropped down to $11 and then rallied back up to $25. And then it continued on its way to $40. It all happened just as Sean predicted.
As I said, this is a regular occurrence for Sean Hyman.
On Feb. 4, 2013, Sean was invited to be on The Willis Report to discuss the market sell-off that sent the Dow below 14,000.
Watch as Sean predicts how the Dow will actually rally to 15,500.
As you can see, Sean has a good rapport with Gerri Willis . . . and she said she would hold him to his prediction. So, after Sean’s predictions came true, she had him back on her show on May 3 so she could give him credit.
So as you can see, Sean Hyman is one of those few who has the courage to make bold, accurate forecasts about the market . . . while everyone else is running the wrong way.
A lot of people think Sean is lucky, but it has nothing to do with luck. Instead, it has everything to do with having the right tools to help him foresee what will happen in the market before it happens . . . tools such as Wall Street’s secret calendar.
That’s why we’ve asked Sean to speak on this secret calendar. But Sean will go beyond that . . . he will actually show you how he was able to improve this secret calendar and then he will give it to you for free with a unique offer . . . so that you could be in a position to turn every $1,000 you have into $49,000.
Here’s Sean Hyman . . .
Hi, I’m Sean Hyman, founder of Absolute Profits.
Let me start by telling you a story. It’s a story Wall Street doesn’t publicize very much. And for good reason too . . .
You see, back in 1968, Merrill Lynch did an extensive study. They looked into the entire “buy and hold” strategy nearly every financial adviser sells their clients on — the idea that as long as you kept buying, your investments would go up and make you a millionaire when you retired.
They examined the seven biggest sectors over a 10-year period. And what the controversial study revealed was startling.
Let’s take a look.
This is the stock market since 1950.
The study went from 1954 to 1964.
When Merrill Lynch overlaid these years, it was clear that every year, like clockwork, there were six months where these sectors went up, and six months where they went down in value. Six months up, six months down. Like a predictable cycle.
And what they realized was, if you bought these seven sectors at the beginning of the six-month up-cycle . . . and sold before the six-month down-cycle began . . . and then reinvested at the next up-cycle . . . and did that for 10 years in a row . . .
You would end up making 250% more than if you had simply “bought and held.”
This was astounding! Here was verified proof that there was a clear, predictable pattern in the stock market. A pattern with exact dates on which to buy and exact dates on which to sell. A pattern which simply made higher returns and profit than “buy and hold.”
Well, here’s the funny — yet not at all surprising — thing.
When Merrill Lynch discovered this six-month cycle, they didn’t tell their clients to stop using the “buy-and-hold” strategy.
It wasn’t in their interest to reveal the market’s predictable cycles. They could not imagine the consequences of what would happen if millions of people started buying and selling by following this calendar.
Nobody would ever want to invest in the markets long-term . . . which would dramatically reduce their management fees.
And so, these Wall Street analysts kept the calendar a secret to themselves and a few select friends.
Now, to be clear . . . this isn’t technical analysis, chart reading, candlesticks, or anything like that.
These market cycles are exact dates on which to buy certain investments and exact dates on which to sell certain investments. These dates never change from one year to the next. They are always on the same day of every year.
So for example . . .
Let’s take a look at energy.
The secret calendar may tell you to buy the energy sector on Jan. 11 of every year . . . and sell it by June 14 of every year. And if you did that, you would make more money than if you had simply bought energy on Jan. 1 and held on to it for the entire year.
So here’s what happened next . . .
These Wall Street analysts got together every year and put their findings into a unique annual financial calendar.
And every year since 1968, this calendar would be distributed to a very small inner circle of Wall Street insiders, stock traders, and top investors across the nation and around the globe.
By following this secret calendar, a small group of Wall Street insiders are able to make consistent, predictable profits that beat the market by 250% . . . dating back 45 years!
Mind you, these aren’t astronomical results like 10-baggers, trades that double your money in a few weeks or speculative IPOs you got in early on.
In other words, these were not gambles.
I don’t know about you, but I have never been interested in looking for needles in the haystack. I’m happy to get good, solid, safe returns year in and year out.
As you can guess, this secret calendar has created many millionaires over the last four decades.
In fact . . .
- A billionaire investor and former Forbes columnist confessed that he used calendar to get wealthy.
- A media magnate and investment publisher admitted this calendar helped make him rich.
- A high-level officer at Standard & Poor’s recently disclosed that he keeps this calendar near him at all times.
And what’s more, using this secret calendar, a little-known commodities trader quickly turned $10,000 into $1 million . . . simply by following which dates to buy and sell his investments!
This is all documented in the Robbins Trading Company World Cup Challenge.
Now — as you can imagine, this calendar is highly coveted. Very few professional investors even know of its existence. Fewer get access to it.
But here’s the breaking news . . .
Recently, I Got My Hands On a
‘Rogue Version’ of This Calendar!
Now, a lot of things go past my desk and through my inbox every week.
I often get thank-you letters from my subscribers about an investment I recommended that made them money.
Sometimes, it’s a friend asking me to look into a stock for them.
And other times, I get regular invitations to share my thoughts and ideas on the market and economy on CNBC, Fox Business, and Bloomberg TV.
But one Tuesday morning, I received an unmarked manila envelope in the mail. There was no “from” address. It simply had a Bible verse scribbled on the back of it: “Ecclesiastes 3:1.”
I knew the verse by heart. It states, “For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.”
The verse gave me a clear tip-off as to who might have sent the package. A mentor of mine, whom I haven’t spoken to in ages, had a desk plate with the quote inscribed on it.
In any case, I opened the envelope and took out a single-page document.
The Bible verse immediately made sense.
Let me show you a scanned copy of what was inside.
It was a calendar of sorts. In fact, it was a rogue version of the secret calendar that identified seasons in the stock market. It listed 38 precise dates. Like these.
The calendar is interesting because it’s stripped down. There are no bells or whistles. Those 38 dates are grouped into 19 “date-pairs.”
A “date-pair” is two days coupled together. One specific day in the year to buy a certain investment and the exact date on which to sell it.
The investments in this calendar were called sector funds. These are either ETFs or mutual funds that track specific sectors of the market. I used energy as an example earlier.
These sector funds have been around for a while. They are very efficient, effective, and stable. But what was interesting was what the calendar instructed me to do with them.
Instead of buying them and holding on to them, a person should hold on to each of the sector funds for only two to six months. Meaning . . . hold the fund for only part of the year, but never long term.
What’s more, every year, one should buy the same 19 sector funds on the same day as prescribed by the calendar, and sell them in the same manner — and if one were to do this, according to this rogue calendar, one would receive an astounding 13.44% annualized return.
In other words — if you had invested a mere $10,000 into this system 20 years ago, and placed the trades on the dates as instructed in the calendar, you would now possess $124,544 . . . while that same $10,000 held in an S&P 500 index fund would’ve left you with $53,421.
And while the buy-and-hold strategy returns aren’t bad by any means, that is still $71,123 less than you would have made by using this calendar.
About a 250% difference.
I looked into it further, and I have to say . . . the returns are resilient. The calendar has worked reliably through three bull markets and two bear markets. In other words, it made money when times were good and when times were bad.
And what’s more, this rogue calendar has no thinking involved. There is no chart analysis. No digging through financial statements.
You simply mark off the 38 dates on your calendar. Or set a reminder on a computer, tablet, or smartphone. And when that day arrives, simply execute the investment.
And as I said, if you follow these simple instructions . . .
This rogue calendar, where you place trades on only 38 days of the year, should let you receive consistent, reliable, and predictable returns . . . leaving you free to do whatever else you wanted to the rest of the year.
And here’s the good news . . .
In today’s presentation, I am going to share a superior version of this rogue calendar — set up with a “Crash Alert” system and fortified with my 360-degree value screener — absolutely free. You will need to watch until the end of this presentation to see how you can qualify.
But perhaps more importantly, I am going to show you how we supercharged this rogue calendar to hike the returns so that a $10,000 investment would balloon from $124,544 up to a mind-blowing $490,693.
You will be amazed.
That’s turning every $1,000 into $49,000.
But for you to appreciate how we did it, I need to first tell you more about the rogue calendar I got my hands on and how I ramped it up thanks to the brilliant mind of a Cold War mathematician.
You see, while this rogue calendar was an astonishing find, and a gift from an old mentor, I wasn’t about to use it without making sure it worked as well as the Wall Street insiders claimed it did. After all, everything I had heard about this calendar was based on rumors and secondhand information up until that moment.
Not to mention, there is no such thing as a crystal ball for making money in the stock market. Investing in stocks inherently carries some level of risk. This calendar would be no exception to that rule.
So I called a contact of mine — a reclusive mathematical genius — to poke holes in it.
And poke holes in it he did.
The calendar was indeed a rogue version of the secret calendar passed around Wall Street. But . . . and this is the key . . . the mathematical genius went further with it.
He couldn’t help but tinker with the ideas inside this calendar.
Before we move on, let me tell you more about this mathematical genius.
During the Cold War, he had a highly classified job working for the U.S. Air Force inside covert underground stations.
And you wouldn’t believe what his job was . . .
He was the man that made sure the nuclear missiles went exactly where they were supposed to go should he ever get “the call” on the red telephone from the president or a five-star general.
His geographic calculations had to be deadly accurate — one wrong digit could mean sending a nuclear missile to Britain instead of the USSR.
But also, this math genius had to encrypt these top-level instructions in a complicated algorithm so that no one could ever misuse these computers.
In short, his brain was built for complex numbers. And after retiring, he turned his attention to the stock market. The perfect place for a numbers guy to get wealthy.
He is just the sort of man who loves to take apart any “system” and put it back together just to see if he can. So when I gave him access to the rogue calendar, he instantly dove deep into the mechanics of how it worked.
And putting his brilliant mathematical mind to use, he upgraded and refined the rogue calendar . . . the one that was already beating the market by 250%.
What’s more, this guy took this rogue calendar a step further and made it “foolproof.” Now it’s designed so that you can profit on the investments 96% of the time!
More on this in a moment.
So, what we have here is perhaps one of the simplest, most reliable, and predictable ways to invest your money!
And at the end of this presentation, you will be shown how you can get a superior copy of this rogue calendar absolutely free.
Here’s what’s great about this calendar . . .
This isn’t your typical investing strategy where you ferret through thousands of stocks, pore over financial statements, and follow the company news.
This also isn’t some fancy trading tactic where you have to read complicated charts and sit in front of your computer all day long.
And best of all, there’s no second-guessing, doubting, or wondering if you made the right move when you use this investing system.
You simply execute two or three investments each month.
It’s low-risk because it is fortified with our “crash alert” system.
Fact is, this rogue calendar may be one of the most consistent and profitable investment strategies I’ve ever come across.
Especially when I teamed up with our mathematician to create superior version of this calendar. Consider this: The average annual stock market returns over the past 20 years has been 8.74%. The rogue calendar improves the returns to 13.44% annually. Our superior version upped the returns to 18.79% per year, and then overlaid it with my 360-degree system for investing to increase the returns to 21.49%.
Over a 20-year period, an 18.79% annual return . . . now watch closely . . . an 18.79% annual return would catapult a $10,000 investment to $313,038. And a 21.49% return would catapult it to $490,693.
All right, that’s a lot of numbers, so, let me explain how we did this.
At the heart of it all is a simple concept of investing in the seasons for predictable returns.
Now, what can be more predictable, reliable, and consistent than seasons?
The four seasons of spring, summer, fall, and winter have repeated their cycle thousands of times since day 1. One season follows another in the same order over and over again. And what this calendar does is take advantage of that.
Let’s use a simple example to drive the point home.
We’ll say clothing. With clothes, there are in-season and out-of-season fashions. Say, a good, thick winter jacket.
As you know, when winter comes around and people need winter jackets, retail stores will charge you full price for them. But once the winter season is over, retail stores must get rid of their supply. So they put the winter jackets on sale . . . at 50%, even 75% off.
Now, if you were “smart” about this — and didn’t care for the latest trends in fashion —you would simply buy that winter jacket when it was out-of-season in the springtime, when retailers were doing their best to clear out their inventory to make way for new stock.
The fact is — regardless of what happens — come November or December, winter comes. And you will need a winter jacket. The question is, did you pay full price or a discounted price?
This very same principle applies to the stock market as well!
You see, stocks can be divided up into many sectors. A sector is basically a group of related industries. Examples of sectors include consumer staples, healthcare, or utilities. Some others are gold, technology, and defense.
As you can see, these sectors are based on very common, everyday things we need. And most people tend to buy these things at the same time each and every year.
Another basic example would be our heating and electric bills. Those tend to be higher in the wintertime.
A final example may be real estate. Historically, you have a better chance of selling your house during late spring, right before the summer holidays.
And when large groups of people purchase the same items in a small window of time . . . well, revenue and profits naturally soar for that period of the year, causing a spike in their values on the stock markets.
With this basic premise, my mathematical genius went about dissecting the 19 sectors in the rogue calendar.
Remember, each sector had a two-to-six-month season when it rose in value, and it did it every year at the same time like clockwork!
We call these two-to-six-month periods “prime season.” And if you simply bought on the first day of each sector’s “prime season” . . . and sold on the last day of their “prime season” . . . you would receive the best possible returns each and every year.
The numbers for the rogue calendar were already astounding, but remember, we were able to improve them . . . so listen closely to see how we did it.
In the first iteration of this rogue calendar, the average trade was able to get 11.23% returns per investment . . . winning 89.7% of the time, which meant that 89 out of 100 investments made were profitable.
Over the course of the year, by selling each sector when told to, and then reinvesting the gains into the next prime sector, the average annual return was 13.44%.
Put another way . . .
If you continued to reinvest your profits over a 20-year period . . . a $10,000 investment would grow to $124,544.
Now compare this to using “buy-and-hold” on the S&P 500. You’d have $53,421 instead from an 8.74% annual return. Which means the calendar helps you beat the market by $71,123.
A 250% increase.
Obviously, the calendar was a success.
But for my mathematical genius friend and me, a 13.44% annual return wasn’t good enough.
And we both felt that a win ratio of 89.7% was still “too risky.”
In other words — we wanted to stack the odds in our favor even further.
Now, of course, there is no such thing as a perfect system to make money in stocks without taking on some level of risk. But that doesn’t mean we can’t try to mitigate risk as much as possible.
So we applied a technical indicator called the MACD to our calendar. MACD stands for moving average convergence-divergence. I won’t take the time here to explain it in detail, but essentially, it’s a reliable indicator that triggers buy-and-sell signals based on trend direction and changes in momentum of any sector.
And with this extra layer of analysis, our return per investment unfortunately dropped from 11.23% to 9.7%.
However — now pay close attention — our “win” ratio in our back testing (or how often our investments were profitable), climbed to an unbelievable 96%! Which meant that out of every 100 investments this calendar suggested, 96 were winners.
Here’s the funny thing about the math.
Seeing them placed side-by-side, the average person would say, “Isn’t it better to make 11.23% 90 times out of a 100, versus 9.7% returns 96 times out of a 100?”
Well, here is where it is nice to have a math genius in your corner. If you do the calculations on probabilities and returns . . . you actually make more money in the long run when your returns per trade are lower but you are winning 96% of the time.
In fact, if you were to reinvest your gains back into the system over and over again with the new MACD numbers . . . instead of getting a 13.44% annual return like you would with the rogue calendar, you would get an 18.79% annualized return with this advanced calendar with MACD, which we are calling the Prime Season Calendar.
And if you had invested a mere $10,000 into this Prime Season Calendar
20 years ago, and placed the investments on the dates as instructed in the calendar . . .
You would now be sitting on $313,038 . . . while that same $10,000 held in an S&P 500 index fund would be a mere $53,421.
Again, this is why having a math genius on speed dial helps a lot!
And in a moment, I will show you how we juiced the returns even more . . . so that the $313,000 turns into $490,000 and change.
As I’ve said before — this calendar is the simplest system I’ve ever seen. All you have to do is buy the sectors when the calendar tells you to . . . and sell when it says to. You can add all 38 dates into your calendar, tablet, or smartphone.
And as I had also mentioned — you will have a chance to get a copy of our Prime Season Calendar absolutely free near the end of this presentation.
But that’s not all — you see, I haven’t told you the best part about this calendar.
I wanted to design the calendar with a “Crash Alert” system that could detect if the stock market was approaching a major sell-off weeks before the crash would hit.
It sounds impossible, right?
Well, it’s amazing what you can do when you have a nuclear missile architect as part of your mastermind group. After all, part of his job during the Cold War was to prevent “the worst-case scenario.”
So here’s what we did.
We re-engineered the MACD indicator that we used to identify the “prime seasons” so that it could alert us if the stock market was approaching a major crash.
Now, this meant making the calendar live on an encrypted website. So we created such a website and the math genius laced the code behind the scenes to literally say “Crash Alert” weeks before the market would collapse.
And it worked perfectly in all of our testing.
Now you can easily avoid the worst of any stock market correction, downturn, or even a crash!
We’ve all experienced how devastating these downturns in the market can be. If you’ve been investing for any amount of time . . .
- Then you may have experienced the 1987 crash when a bunch of trading robots brought Wall Street to its knees . . .
- Or remember the dot-com crash of 2001, when everyone realized the tech companies weren’t really worth anything . . .
- And you probably still feel the pain from the 2008 financial crisis, brought on by subprime mortgages that sent the stock market tumbling by 55%.
And every time these market “corrections” occurred, folks at every level watched helplessly as their hard-earned investments got cut in half, or worse, got completely wiped out. Some have seen their nest eggs, built over decades of work, vanish.
Well, our Prime Season Calendar here is designed to flash a red alert before the crisis happens. Take a look at the 2008 crash, for example.
Late 2007 was the beginning of the crisis — that’s when the world first learned about the destructive consequences of subprime mortgages.
Now — if you had used the original calendar, the one without the extra layer of protection of the MACD, you would’ve lost 55% of your stock portfolio.
But because we’ve added MACD to the equation, it actually told us to get out almost immediately before the crash on Dec. 10!
However, any person who uses the Prime Season Calendar doesn’t have to know all the math behind the scenes. When you access the calendar, it will simply say “Crash Alert” . . . and you will know to sell all your positions.
In fact, you will notice, this “Crash Alert” system would have told us to stay out of the market until the worst was over.
It’s that simple.
This is a calendar that is designed to pay out 18.79% annualized returns consistently, predictably, and reliably . . . it’s accurate 96% of the time . . . AND on top of that, it tells you to get out weeks before things are about to crash.
Now, for most people, that’d be more than good enough.
But not for me.
I knew I could do even better with our Prime Season Calendar.
So I asked myself . . . what if we invested only in the best stocks of each sector during its prime season?
Now, the concept of seasons is not new to me.
As a financial newsletter writer, I’ve recommended several investments based on market cycles and seasons.
It’s this kind of analysis that helped me make several accurate predictions on television — as you saw at the very beginning of this Web presentation.
I was able to say that Best Buy would drop to $11 and bounce back to $40, that the Dow would go up to 15,000 on Fox Business News, and that gold would bottom out at $1,240 on CNBC . . . because I understood “financial seasons” intuitively.
And when I apply seasonal investing to my proprietary 360-degree system for analyzing stocks . . . quite a few of my picks hit double-digit returns within a few months after I recommend them.
By the way, my 360-degree system to investing is a combination of fundamental, technical, and sentiment analysis. I won’t get into the details of it here . . . but it’s essentially a complete view of any investment.
And when it’s coupled with the seasonal investing, it gets even better.
Let me show you a few examples of investments that I alerted my readers and viewers to . . .
Back in July of 2012, I saw that the European countries were still being battered down in the financial markets . . . even though it had been three years since the most devastating euro crisis.
One particular country’s index, Italy, fell from $36 to below $10. Now, Italy is a member of the G-8 and is one of the largest economies in Europe! Plus, the P/E ratio of Italy’s index was at an unheard-of 8.
PE stands for price-to-earnings. A stock with a PE of 16 is fairly priced. Anything above 16 gets overpriced, anything below it can be underpriced.
In other words, Italy was on a fire sale.
So on July 24, 2012, I recommended my private group of newsletter readers buy Italy via an exchange-traded fund at $9.33.
The small group of people who were wise enough to listen to me enjoyed a 51% profit when we sold the position on Sept. 12, 2013, at $13.78.
This is an example of me recognizing when a country had become so “out-of-season” that it was being punished unfairly. For my readers, that meant they picked up the investment at a deep discount.
Here’s another example . . .
Recently, I found a natural gas company in South America called YPF that became “out-of-season” to the point where its P/E ratio was 6.33.
Again, using my 360-degree approach and understanding of this country’s financial seasons . . . I was confident enough to tell my readers we are getting a true “out-of-season” deep discount here.
We bought YPF on May 21 for $13.84. Four months later we turned around and sold YPF for 33% profits.
One last example . . . and this one ties into a video you saw at the start of this presentation.
Remember this clip . . .
The young-gun analyst scoffed that if Best Buy went to $40, Apple would hit $1,500.
Well, here’s the funny thing. What that analyst didn’t know was that Apple was on my radar screen. I was just waiting for it to fall “out-of-season.”
And sure enough, it did when its P/E ratio dropped below the 10 mark.
Readers of my newsletter were able to scoop up shares at $419 on June 20, 2013.
Since then, Apple has bounced back, giving us a nice gain.
Now, we are still waiting for this investment to play out. But one thing is for certain, I sure do like owning Apple at $419 a lot more than owning it at its high of $700. That’s a 40% discount.
My readers are often surprised at how I’m able to pick these “out-of-season” stocks . . . and just at the right time before they get “into season” again. Many have profited greatly from these investments.
Here’s what some of them have to say . . .
“In less than six weeks I have seen gains of between 10% to 12%.”— Burk S., Provo, UT.
“My investment is up 10.2% in seven days! I can’t wait until your next recommendation!”— John M., Memphis, TN.
“I am up 8%, 9.8%, and 16.7% . . . I am very profitable and looking forward to taking the next positions.”— Leonard T., New Braunfels, TX.
“Sean, I’ve been with you for less than 90 days and I’m up over 12%. Thank God for you, sir!”— Mitch C., Fayetteville, GA.
So based on what I know and what I can bring to the table — what occurred to me after reviewing the Prime Season Calendar, along with its “Crash Alert” system, was this . . .
What if — instead of simply investing in the sectors based on seasons — what if we put our money on the best stock during each sector’s “prime season” instead?
Essentially, overlaying the Prime Season Calendar with my proprietary 360-degree stock investment strategy.
So say, instead of simply buying a technology fund when the technology sector is “in season,” why not focus on the best-performing stock in that sector instead . . . such as Oracle, Apple, or Intel or whatever stock is about to “go in-season,” with huge potential for an upswing?
Wouldn’t that get us much higher returns?
Wouldn’t that maximize our investments and get us Absolute Profits?
Here’s what we did.
I sat down with my math genius — my cryptographer who was in charge of the nuclear bombs back during the Cold War . . .
And we dove in. We thought about how we could invest in the best stocks during each sector’s prime season instead of just buying a fund that tracks the sector.
After months and months of careful back testing, the results we got were simply astounding. We found that our system of Absolute Profits could get better-than-market returns consistently. It didn’t matter if the stock market was going up, down, or sideways. We beat the market.
Here are the results . . .
Now, pay close attention, because this is where small numbers really add up.
As mentioned earlier, using the Prime Season Calendar, we were able to average 18.79% per year. That would allow a person to turn every $10,000 into $313,038 over a 20-year period.
But when we overlaid the seasonal calendar with my proprietary 360-degree investment strategy to identify the best stock of each sector during its “prime season” . . . we were able to increase the annual returns to 21.49%.
At first, this extra 3% increase sounds minimal.
But that $10,000 investment now jumps from $313,000 over 20 years . . . up to $490,693.
Take a look at these examples for proof . . .
In 2010, after our “Crash Alert” gave us the green light to invest again, energy would be hitting its “prime season” on Sept. 20 and would last until Feb. 7.
So by getting into an energy sector ETF, we would have made 36% profits in a six-month period versus 15% on the S&P 500.
That’s great. That’s more than double what the market returns were. But we could do better. Using my 360-degree strategy for picking stocks, we would have identified National Oilwell Varco, symbol NOV, as completely “out-of-season” and beaten down, and ready for a rally. It was fundamentally sound, sentiment was heading in its direction, and technically speaking, it was geared up for a major rally.
And as you can see on the chart, had we made this investment — we would have received a profit windfall of 85%! That’s beating the market by 70 percentage points!
What’s more, because the Absolute Profits system is about getting in during “prime seasons” only — never sticking around for the position to fall out of season (and in this case being six months) . . .
We would have exited this investment with 85% returns so that we could reinvest our money in the next “prime season” stock.
Those are incredible results using both the Prime Season Calendar and my 360-degree stock picking strategy!
Now, I also want to show you how this works in a flat market.
Take a look at this example . . . during 2011, the stock market was pretty much flat from April through June.
But thanks to our Prime Season Calendar, we would have focused our attention on the pharmaceutical sector.
During that time, the S&P 500 gained about 1%. But the pharmaceutical sector actually gained 8%.
That’s a 7% difference.
But, let’s say we pick the top stock of that sector using my 360-degree investment approach . . . a stock like Questcor Pharmaceuticals, symbol QCOR, a biopharmaceutical company which focuses on the treatment of patients with serious, difficult-to-treat autoimmune disorders.
Well, take a look at these gains. We would have received a 27% windfall in two short months.
That is 26% better than a buy-and-hold strategy!
Again, that was during a short two-month period!
So — you’ve seen how our Absolute Profits system performs in an up market and a sideways market. But, is it possible to make money even as the market goes down?
The short answer is yes . . . but I say that tongue-in-cheek.
Remember, this Absolute Profits system is designed to signal a “Crash Alert” if the stock market is facing a major sell-off like we saw in 1987, 2000, and 2008.
So if a major crash is coming, our system should alert you well in advance.
However, we don’t want to sit on the sidelines if the market is heading into a moderate sell-off. And that is because our sectors will still shine during their prime season . . . even if the overall market is going down.
Take a look at this example . . .
Between late April and late September of 2010, stocks went down about 6%.
But for seasonal investors who knew what sectors to be in during this period, it was a great time!
Our calendar would have told us to get into the gold mining sector on April 20 and stay in until Sept. 21. As you can see in this chart, if you had followed our calendar, you would’ve made 20% returns instead of getting hit with a 6% loss.
But watch this.
Using my 360-degree approach, we would’ve identified the best stock during gold mining “prime season.” That stock would be Newmont Mining, symbol NEM.
And as you can see, this stock made 24%, beating the S&P 500 by 30 percentage points . . . and even beating the gold sector by 4 percentage points!
Plus, just like the other example . . . we are in and out of these investments as soon as the prime season is over. In this case, we got our 24% returns in five months and promptly left, cashing in our chips, and going on to the next investment.
As you can see with these three examples, using the Prime Season Calendar overlaid with my 360-degree investment approach, what we call our Absolute Profits system, we would have been able to get returns such as 85% in a bull market, 27% in a flat market, even as high as 24% in a bear market, while sidestepping major stock market sell-offs!
Compare that to if you had a buy-and-hold strategy where you would have gained only 15% in a bull market, made 1% in a flat market, and lost 6% in a bear market.
That’s a difference of 70%, 26%, and 30%, respectively.
And of course, you should have also avoided the 50% market crashes that plagued Americans in 1987, 2000, and 2008 because our calendar is designed to issue “Crash Alerts.”
Please also notice that none of the returns I mentioned are outlandish. I don’t claim to make 500%, 1,500%, or 15,000%.
Our goal is to get consistent, solid returns.
We do that by picking winners. Remember, our Prime Season Calendar has been able to identify winners 96% of the time . . . in bull markets, flat markets, and bear markets.
Now, in a moment, I would like to invite you to become a member of my newsletter service, Absolute Profits, completely risk-free. This newsletter will give you access to my investments based on this truly amazing system.
I’ll also tell you how you can get your very own copy of the Prime Season Calendar itself — that reliably produced 18.79% annualized returns in our back testing — absolutely free.
But first, I want to quickly tell you why the timing couldn’t be more perfect.
At some point in your life, you’ve probably met with a personal financial adviser. Maybe you had an annual checkup recently.
He or she may have reminded you that, over time, the stock market has generated solid 7% or 8% annual returns . . . as long as you bought your mutual funds and held on to them . . . for 20, 30, or 40 years.
Now, there is truth to that.
However, the problem is this. Take a look at this chart of the stock market from 1950 to 2000. The only reason why one could get returns of 7% or 8% annually over the last 20, 30, or 40 years is because we experienced an unprecedented stock market rally from 1980 to 2000 that sent stocks up 1,368%.
It is very debatable if we will ever experience a stock market rally of that magnitude again.
To put that in perspective, the Dow Jones would have to rally to 212,000 points to equal another 1,368% return.
Betting your financial future on this type of stock market rally is not only unrealistic, it’s dangerous.
In fact, take a look at this chart from 2000 to present day. If you had bought stocks in 2000, and held them, you would have generated an annual return of a mere .29%.
Look, buy-and-hold is dead.
It has only worked because we had the 1,368% bull run between 1980 and 2000!
Our research is conclusive. What works consistently, reliably, and predictably — in good times, bad times, and even in times where the market doesn’t seem to move at all — is seasonal investing coupled with my 360-degree strategy of fundamental, technical, and sentiment analysis, backed by our “Crash Alert” system.
That’s what Absolute Profits is about.
And the best part about all this is . . . it’s not complicated! Inside our calendar, which we’ve aptly named the Prime Season Calendar, I give you the exact dates to buy and sell each of the 19 sectors. If you simply buy the ETF or the fund for each of those sectors, based on our rigid back testing, you could earn 18.79% annually over the long run.
That’s enough to turn every $10,000 investment into $313,937 over a 20-year period.
But every percentage point counts.
Just one percent more in annualized returns could mean hundreds of thousands of dollars.
When we overlay our Prime Season Calendar with my proprietary 360-degree investment approach, we have the chance to boost our returns up to 21.49% a year.
That’s enough to turn every $10,000 investment into $490,693, or every $1,000 into $49,000.
And that’s why with Absolute Profits, I will be helping you pick the best stock out of the entire sector whenever it approaches its “prime season.”
As you saw in our examples, we were getting returns as high as 85% within five months!
It’s as clear as this . . . would you rather have $53,430 or $490,693?
Now, whether you decide to simply invest in the funds as suggested in the Prime Season Calendar or work with me to help you find the best stocks in each sector as they hit their highest profit season . . . you’re still beating the stock market average and ensuring a safer, stronger financial future.
Very few mutual funds or financial planners can even begin to talk about 21.49% annual returns.
But here’s the best part . . . I’m going to practically give you the Prime Season Calendar absolutely free at the end of this presentation.
Let me explain.
When you enroll as a charter member of Absolute Profits, you are getting access to the Prime Season Calendar, a heavily back-tested, proven strategy designed to generate 18.79% annualized returns.

I’m going to go out on a limb here.
This Prime Season Calendar is the most foolproof way to consistently, reliably, and predictably make money and beat the market. This strategy alone has generated 18.79% returns over the last 20 years, turning your $10,000 into $313,038.
Which is 6 TIMES better than what you would’ve gotten investing in the S&P 500.
And maybe you’re happy with that.
And you’re not interested in my best stocks during each sector’s “prime season.” And perhaps you just want the Prime Season Calendar for free. I get that.
But I want you to at least try out Absolute Profits.
So let me make it completely risk-free for you.
If you subscribe to Absolute Profits and don’t like it for any reason, you can ask for a full refund at any point in the next three months . . . and you get to KEEP your copy of the Prime Season Calendar.
You have nothing to lose here.

In other words, try Absolute Profits. Try investing in my “best stocks.” And if you don’t like it, get a refund and keep the Prime Season Calendar!
And here’s the best part — subscribing to Absolute Profits will cost you less than a family dinner out!
Yes, you heard that right!

Now, why would I offer my Prime Season Calendar so freely?
It’s a great question to ask.
Why would I take such a big risk to practically offer the Prime Season Calendar free of charge to you?
Because, for me, at the end of the day, this isn’t about money.
It’s about more than that.
This is about giving back and helping others achieve financial freedom. This is something that’s dear to my heart. You see, several years ago, my father came to me with a $40,000 investment account that he simply couldn’t retire on.
Using an early version of my system, I was able to help him turn that $40,000 into $396,000. That’s what I want to do for you with an Absolute Profits membership.
You see, I was raised in a small town in Arkansas. We had no money when I was growing up. So when I was still young, I made a vow to myself that I would develop financial intelligence — so that I could provide for my family, serve God, and help others.
One of my mentors from my earlier years was among the “who’s who” of financial geniuses. He knew my background as well as my vision.
In fact, he was the one who sent me the calendar with the Bible verse on it from Ecclesiastes 3:1 that states, “For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.”
He sent the calendar to me for one reason . . . he knew I had the ability to share it with thousands of people.
That’s what I’m doing here with Absolute Profits.
My goal is to help thousands of folks across America achieve financial security.
It’s been over five years since the financial crisis of 2008, but I know how much it still stings for most people. I’ve seen friends, relatives, and colleagues blindsided and wiped out.
Absolute Profits is about fighting back and saving your retirement . . .
And we will do it using an improved version of Wall Street’s very own trading strategy to profit . . . their secret calendar.
They have been using their secret calendar to beat the market by 250%.
But we have improved the calendar.
The rogue version that landed on my desk delivered annual returns of 13.44%.
And then I worked with a genius mathematician to retool it to our Prime Season Calendar to get 18.79% returns.
And while getting 18.79% annualized returns is a great way to help you build wealth for your retirement . . . I wanted to get even better returns for you. Returns that beat the market whether it’s up, down, or sideways.
Returns that are life-transforming.
That is why we overlaid the Prime Season Calendar with my 360-degree investment strategy to get our Absolute Profits methodology to generate average annual returns of 21.49%.
Now, it’s important for me to state that no system is perfect. All investments carry risk and past performance is never indicative of future results.
Of course, we want to mitigate that risk as much as possible.
That is why I have spent the last several months of my life working side by side with a mathematical wizard to back-test a system for investing that includes “Crash Alerts” that could reduce that risk as much as possible.
So let me help you here.
By becoming an Absolute Profits member, I will work my tail off to help you get returns of at least 21.49% per year — no matter what happens in the stock market.
Now before I go, I have to mention one last thing.
The special pricing for Absolute Profits that you will see on the registration page is reserved for viewers like yourself only. You are among the very first to see this presentation. Because of that, you are guaranteed a very special, unique enrollment fee to Absolute Profits that future viewers may not see.
And frankly, the C-level executives have fought me on the current reduced price we are offering today.
They have made it clear that they will double the enrollment fee to Absolute Profits in the very near future. To my knowledge, the paperwork has already been approved to make the change.
So don’t delay on this.
Especially since right now the enrollment fee is less than a family dinner out . . .
Take advantage of this charter membership immediately before the price doubles.
Remember — regardless if you stay with Absolute Profits or not — you get to keep your own copy of Prime Season Calendar for free, which can help you generate 18.79% annual returns by simply buying the right sector on the exact dates as indicated.
