My current tactic: Waiting for Hijak stock to drop to like $5.50 a share, invest everyone, wait for it to go up, save, wait longer, save. If it goes down, revert to old save. In the mean time I just f*ck around looking for stunt jumps on my bike. Stock is currently up to $6.23, which is about 15% profit.

 

Stupid question: is there a way to buy a stock in bulk instead of by share? It's a lot of button mashing to buy 300 $10 shares, or something like that, especially if you're going to buy thousands of stocks (if you want to do that GoldCoast trick mentioned above).

Hold down the plus button with the A button when buying stock! :lol:

So let's say I finish the story, I then invest in maze bank, or ammu-nation, how do I get profit?

 

Then you would want to take out the competition for those specific companies. Ex. Maze Bank, see if you can light up a Liberty Bank somewhere in Los Santos. Then check the stock fluctuation.

 

Do i have to do that to rival companies that have interior'd shops?

Whats with the questions on buying stocks in bulk? Just hold the + sign and the quantity jumps pretty quick. There is a margin of speed by every half decimal

I agree, it would be nice to have a button for buying as much as you can afford. But if you hold down the button it will go faster, and the longer you hold it, the faster it goes.

 

I ended up selling out around $6.50 a share. Made about $150k over all three characters. I noticed something interesting, though: I had all three full invested in Hijak, and was playing as Franklin just f*cking around, checking my portfolio every few minutes. The stock took FOREVER to move, kept going down, took me probably 30 minutes IRL time before it actually went up. So I would f*ck around, wait for it to go up. If it went down too far, I'd reload my save. If it went up, I'd quicksave. Rinse and repeat. Finally peaked at about $6.30 a share. So I sold out Franklin, quicksaved, and switched to Trevor.

 

But when I was Trevor, I saw the stock start spiking again. So I kept doing the savegame technique, got the price to peak around $6.40 a share, finally sold him out and saved.

 

So then as Michael, I was pretty much ready to cash him out cause it was a pretty good return, but then I saw the stock start spiking AGAIN! Finally peaked around $6.54 a share before I sold him out. Just minutes after doing so, it spiked up to $6.70!

 

So maybe I'm just seeing patterns in nothing, but it seems like when you have everyone invested, the stock either won't budge or will drop. I ran into this yesterday, Hijak stock was around $6.50 a share. I waited for it to get down to about $6.20 and bought it out with everyone. But then it just started dropping to about $6.00, and then fluctuated between that and $6.15. So I went back to before I'd invested and waited. Eventually saw the stock go down to $6.00, so I invested everyone in it again. And once again, it dropped below $6.00, down to about $5.75. So I went back and uninvested everyone again, got tired and went and did some races. With no once invested, I'd periodically check on the Hijak stock, and it would never drop close to $6.00 again. I don't know if today I just waited long enough or got lucky or if $5.50 was a true bottom for it.

I don't know if this is true but: BAWSAQ is powered by Rockstar Social Club. Does this mean that the changes on BAWSAQ happen from the actions of other players playing the Single-player or? Someone who can clarify this to me?

Buying the golf club shouldn't be a problem, i did two of the assassin missions(redwood was the last one i did) before i finished the story. I then took my ~25m on each character and bought fruit stocks, did the assassination mission related to that stock, waited a bit and sold them. Ended up with about 40m on each character. I took that and invested in Vapid stock after i did the assassination mission related to that stock, i bought when it was low and sold when it went up again. I now sit with about 90m on each character and I am about to do the last assassination mission, and if it pays off in the 80% range i should have enough to buy the golf course, if not I'll have to toy a bit with other stocks.

 

It should be even easier if you save ALL the assassination mission until the end.

Dont know if this would count as a spoiler so il hide it anyway.

 

I just did a random encounter were i got a guys bike back for him and the next day i received an email saying

 

 

 

Dont delete! THIS ISNT SPAM!

You know that guy whose bike you got back yesterday? Well, that's me! And guess what....i'm seriously rich ;) Have you heard of Animal Ark the all-natural pet store? i started that company when i was 17 years old and now i've got like, 8 homes. Turns out organic pet food is totally a recession proof! But it was never about the money for me, even when i floated the business on the stock exchange, and i'm totally unchanged by it.I'm a new generation of millionaire . I don't believe in cynicism or working hard. Money is meaningless if your spiritually bereft, you know what i mean? When you stepped in and helped me, you didn't see a highly successful entrepreneur. You just saw a young, cool guy who got his bike stolen. And that's awesome, dude. So check this out. I'm sending you $100,000 of stock in Animal Ark. That way, I'm invested in you, you're invested in me. Sound cool?

DO NOT cash this in right away. Let it develop for a week (in game) or so and it will give you $900,000 later on! :lol:

Confirmed. Thought of this too, completed only 1 assassination before the story ends, than, with 35m on each character, i grew up on this missions to 400 MILLION DOLLARS on each character! Bought all properties, tanks, aircrafts, expensive cars in game. BECAUSE I'M RICH, BABY!

Anyone else help a guy get his bike back as Michael and then get a sh*t load of free stock in that animal place? Glad to see good deeds don't always go unrewarded haha.

Yep! This is precisely why you should help all the random event folks that you can. Usually the purse-grabs are pretty useless, but when someone gets their bike or car stolen, those will benefit you later. Just be sure and sell the stock asap. When this guy gave me $100k in shares of AnimalArk, I immediately went in to sell it and it'd already dropped to $99,000.

 

you need to be online to get bawsaq. but from what i've seen the rates are completely unpredictable. and because you've missed the first 24 hour window. you lucked out like i did. bawsaq is no use to us (most share's being over 1k atm) i havent even bothered looking at it again.

 

then again im still waiting for vangelico shares to drop below 100

f*cking hell, Rockstar is pissing me off. As much as I like the idea of an online economy that involves other players, it should be separate from my singleplayer game. Especially since the online crap is apparently unstable as hell.

 

Hey, any idea where to find the stolen bike guy? Or is it random location for each game?

Heres what I've been doing, look for stock thats current price is slightly higher than its last price, it signifies that its on the rise and generally will go up more, I usually sell once I've made a decent profit. You won't make a billion in one stock but you will steadily make gains. This method requires checking your portfolio regularly, often, every chance you get even! Understand this is gambling and you can lose big if your not alert to changes in stock price. Theres always a risk involved!

I'm wondering if stock doesn't move as much if you have more money invested in the stock? I need to experiment.

Someone mentioned that stocks might not move much if all three characters are investing. Whether that only applies to more than one character investing in the same company or investing period, I don't know. Maybe you can try having only one character invest in stocks at a time, sell, other character invests, sells, etc. I don't even know if this is true, but it's worth a shot.

What did your guys Debonaire top off at?

 

~449

I was able to cash out two of my characters at that price but when I switched to Michael ($900k in) it was below 300. Still a huge profit.

I have started a new game though. New approach. I was at 46% before but barely had 2mil between three characters.

so I've invested all my money in Betta Pharmaceuticals following the first Lester mission.

 

Does anyone know when the shares peak?

 

They are sitting around 308 right now and seem to have stopped, will they go any higher or should I cash out?
