“Automatic Profits Alert Newsletter Review”

If you are a frequent reader of Get Financial Reviews, you know that I review the financial newsletter subscriptions coming out of investment powerhouse Banyan Hill Publishing quite frequently. This company does promotional product launches on a regular (probably monthly) basis, and there are a lot of investors out there questioning their strong claims and the investors backing them up. The company has a select handful of financial analysts who are well-known in the world of investing and Wall Street. One of them is Chad Shoop. Automatic Profits Alert by Banyan-coined “guru” Chad Shoop is one of three products available by this CMT-Association-designated financial analyst.

Who is Chad Shoop?

Chad is a Chartered Market Technician (CMT), which is a professional achievement in the world of investing that fewer than 5,000 individuals around the world have earned. This goes a long way when it comes to rating his market advice. The CMT tests require an in-depth analysis of stock charts and proof of the individual’s statistical analysis capabilities, as well as expertise in behavioral finance, risk management and technical investing strategies. Chad joined the Banyan Hill Publishing team in 2012. He has led his subscribers to great success through his Pure Income, Automatic Profits Alert and Quick Hit Profits newsletters. Chad’s strategies differ between newsletters in order to cater to different types of investors — those looking for quick weekly or monthly gains, and those looking for safer long-term gains. Chad is also a regular contributor to Investopedia.

What is Automatic Profits Alert?

Automatic Profits Alert is designed to take advantage of consistent seasonal patterns in the market. Much like any industry, there are slow months and high-profit months — bear and bull markets, in Wall Street lingo. The sales pitch is founded on a theory about Wall Street insiders that sounds absurd: Wall Street actually has a calendar – assembled in 1905 – that’s predicted nearly every major stock market boom and bust that’s occurred over the past 100 years. For this stock newsletter, Chad Shoop provides solid stock and ETF recommendations. Crazy — but is it true? In short, yes. Just like every industry and every company, the stock market goes through cycles. This calendar that Chad Shoop uses for Automatic Profits Alert is built on the notion that every sector of the stock market has a remarkably consistent “prime season” regardless of what is happening in the market. These prime seasons can be as short as a few weeks or as long as several months. When playing these cycles, investors can buy the sector during the tail end of the low season, in order to make substantial gains during prime season. But this strategy doesn’t only offer profit opportunities during a sector’s prime season. Chad occasionally recommends a way to profit from “inverse” prime seasons — essentially the period when a sector slumps — without shorting a stock. Chad finds the inverse ETFs that he thinks are the best ones for his readers. Investing in one is exactly like investing in a stock. But when a sector — for instance, the oil sector — declines, your investment rises. Unlike Chad’s other financial newsletters, Pure Income and Quick Hit Profits, this strategy doesn’t use options. Chad’s Automatic Profits Alert readers buy shares of stocks and ETFs and hold them for a relatively short term.

How It Works

Chad has turned the Wall Street Calendar into the Automatic Profits Calendar. He updates the calendar each year to show seasonal trends in the market based in historical charts of a basket of stock from each sector. Since the calendar already works on a rules-based system, Chad will send you carefully researched trade alerts as each sector reaches its prime season. You’ll buy in at the bottom of the S-curve to profit from the spike when the prime season hits. Automatic Profits Alert tells you what to buy when to buy, and when to sell, in order to profit from market-sector seasonality. As an avid investor, I dabble in this strategy myself, often. Every sector experiences seasonality. By analyzing these seasons year-over-year, financial experts like Chad can gather previous trends to predict the next season. Traders and even experts often find themselves at a loss when a stock tanks at a seemingly random time. Chad’s analysis shows that these dips aren’t so random. They can often be predicted based on the sector’s historical performance. Stocks may tank during a slow season, and we can bet on their peak if we analyze prior seasonal trends. Is every one of Chad’s picks a winner? No. But the majority are, and Chad keeps his recommendations on a pretty short leash, so that when he’s wrong, we get out with small losses.

Our Final Review

There is nothing out of the ordinary about investing in seasonal trends. If you own a business, you invest more in your business during peak season. The same is true for the stock market. Automatic Profits Alert allows you to buy in right before the peak for maximum gains. But unlike a business, you can even profit from the downtrends with Chad’s unique strategy. Now, not every stock pick will work out. But Chad suggests a unique “rolling and stacking” method that allows you to take your capital out of one trade and invest it in another opportunity. There could be as many as four rolling and stacking opportunities for the same capital in the course of a year — allowing profits several times over even if one of those opportunities results in a loss.
