hioeo: Quick question to anyone that has tested it. I am doing the story in next
gen and want as much money as possible so that endgame i can waste money on
whatever, afford the theater, afford the golf course, etc. i am on the life
invader mission where you assassinate the (ceo?), and am wondering if
investing in the opposing company or top competitor (whoever it is) will be
a good idea. I imagine so, and only have a couple hundred, but i may forget
about it and it could stabalize by the time i realize ive invested in them,
so is it a good idea to buy? When should i sell (os there any single point
you can come up with that causes their stock to drop?)? And who are the
John D: Buy Tinkle stocks. And save the game (Go to sleep) 3 times in a row. You
will get 85% return
Gregory Lamprinos: Aug insurance,i made billions
Pete mac: Question guys, I did the Bus assasination mission for Lester and invested
my money in VAP on the stock market...However there is no movement at all
from both markets, and i game saved with trevor 6 times but still no
reaction on the markets, my shares are still at -100%...can anyone find a
problem? must i be connected to the internet?
Adrian J. Novelle: I quintoupled Franklin's share of the Big Score, from about $20,000,000 to
just over $115,000,000. And with the mysterious disappearance of Devin
Weston, I think Franklin is now the richest person in Los Santos (as far as
we know)...Of course, his money's gonna drop to zero soon as I make another
$40,000,000 and can buy the golf course.
TRieper47: I have maxxed out money for all three of my characters (the 32 bit max
integer value) - in fact - Micheal has another 1.3B in profit sitting
GoldCoast unsold after that assassination.
As Im sure you all know - save all the assassinations till the end (Hotel
is story driven and you have to do it in order to progress - but try to do
this as late as possible), Not gonna bore you all with how to make money
there as there are hundreds of walkthroughs about them.
I have saves at different points in the storyline and monitored the LCN and
found the drastic moves are purely mission driven. Most missions will
drive a stock down and then certain ones will normalize it back to near its
original price. Some will never recover however.
Here's what I found (and the prices are in my savegames - they might be
different in yours as I think they are randomized when you start - but the
rate of return is usually similar)
LifeInvader - Drops after Friend Request - NEVER recovers - don't bother
with this one at all (from ~250 to ~50)
Richards Majestic - Not sure when it drops - likely after doing one of the
Solomon or Weston missions - NEVER recovers - stay away from this one too!
(from ~230 to ~120)
Vangelico - Drops after the Jewel Store Job - RECOVERS after Minor
Turbulence (went from ~122 to 172+ in my game - 40% return).
FlyUS - Drops after Legal Trouble to half price - RECOVERS and normalizes
after Meltdown to original price - a really good one for a quick cash boost
as you can do those missions back to back. (65 to 32 back to 65 again in my
game - 100% return).
Cluckin Bell - Drops after Paleto Score - RECOVERS on story completion
(more on this below) (from ~160 to ~91)
Gruppe Sachs - Drops after The Big Score (Subtle) - RECOVERS on story
completion (more on this below) (from ~160 to ~130)
Augury Insurance - Stays the same until DOUBLING on story completion (more
on this below) (was always ~105-110)
Merryweather - Stays the same until CHANGING on story completion (more on
this below) (was always ~52-55).
OK - THE ENDING CHOICE HAS BEARING ON A LOT OF STOCKS!!!!
Option A - Kill Trevor (haven't checked this yet doing that one - so I
can't say - sorry)
Option B - Kill Michael - Merryweather jumped to ~180 for me from ~52-55
for 250% return - that was the only noticeable one
Option C - Kill All The Douchebags
- Cluckin Bell normalizes back to ~160 for 65% return
- Gruppe Sachs normalizes back to ~160 for about 30-35%
- Augury doubled to ~210-215 for 100% return (this is
the most profitable_
- Merryweather tumbles to under half price to ~23-25 -
So that's it in a nutshell. If you want more cash to play with before
taking on Franklins' assassinations and the hitchhiker lift to the airport
random event - POST Storyline - these are stocks to be paying attention to.
All of the rest seem to have normal fluctuations over time - I usually use
these to get a quick cash injection by sinking everything in them so even a
few pennies rise in the stock price translates to hundreds of thousands or
millions in return - just to keep the boys maxxed out ;P
Juan Cruz: You should try buying 2 companies that are competers and blow up one of
the companie stuff

Salman Alharthi: The multi assassination mission ... Invest in deb by mission then sell when

Dante Padilla: I have $9999999990 dollars in Single Player and $9999999999 dollars in

Jordan Savage: Try investing in air emu and going to the airport in a tank or buzzard and
blowing up the other airplanes
xMechonx: I got bored of GTA V, I don't know why. :/
The Harbor Butcher: For the last two days i have been in vesting in BAWSAQ $1 or $0.50 dollar
stocks played for about two real time hours and double my money.
What i have learned is that even when you turn off your PS3 (i don't know
about Xbox) the stocks change and once they change they change for every
save slot you have previously created so, loading that save where your
stock was the highest won't work.
I have yet to see what happens if you save before investing because it
would take very long to see which stock has risen to then invest and play
Sleeping in the game didn't work, sleeping in real life did.I went to sleep
on Fri and Sat morning i was a millionaire.
I just made 13k right now watching the stocks and waiting for the lowest
LCN (PostOP) stock to dip a bit.
RelentlessFN89: You can also invest into vangelico jewelry store u rob after u rob it and
make a quick return after a day or two before you do assassination number 1
to move on in story mode. This way u have way more to invest on the first
one. Easy first few million. Cant say exactly what the VAG % would be, but
just keep a very close eye and when it stops moving sell. Its varied for me
several times but you can get around 30-50% out of it.
John Dragon: Thanks for the LCN tip, I've read multiple articles saying you can actually
modify the value of stock market. So it seems is just a code, so it's
steven brooks: it dus work i kept hitting the chicken factory top of map after few days

Sankalp Shanbhag: BAWSAQ never works
Acres ninety: @ Kenny Miranda ...I have ps3
Brian Campuzano: Yeah at the beggining guys a dumbass best way is buy the plane companies
destroy enemie companies
andr00123: Funny how I thought I screwed up because I completed the Lester missions.
8 months later I'm just investing in BAWSAQ, and no it's not necessarily
random, In three days I've made 100 mil per character.
Just buy stocks (mostly HAL) when they fall below 1.00 and sell when 1.75-2
maybe 3 if you're feeling lucky. That atleast doubles your cash. Always
make a back up save even if stocks are sure to bounce back up over 1.00.

Adiso Agape: I learned that investing low on a stock thats doing well, then invest high
on a stalk thats doing bad, give it a day or so in game time and the stalks
switch, clean up the profit you made on one, then re invest and keep doing
the same process
Harvey Mushmann: After completing all the Lester missions and following one of the many
stock guides (close to 2.4 billion per character), I've still been able to
make plenty of money in the stock market.
The trick is there is no real trick. None of the in game charts seem to
work properly nor do the %change seem to be helpful at all.
The best method is to increase the odds of making a profit by investing all
your money in the maximum of 10 stock companies per person. Since none of
the companies will go out of business, there wont be a 100% loss. The idea
is, if you wait long enough the stock will eventually rebound. As long as
it was bought below its peak value.
There are some stocks that I"ve never got a return from long term. Thought
I've not tried them all.
Richard Majestic, Bullhead, Bob Mullet.
The ones I've got the most return on.
Life Invader, Maryweather, Max Renda, PostOp, Redwood, Blinkton, there are
more but can't remember.
RelentlessFN89: Good work by the way.
Daniel Payne: round about the time you have the mission called monkey business or a
little bit before. go on the stock market menu. AUG will be very low
believe me. buy as much as you can what i done was put every penny on AUG i
mean every and put a decent amount down. IT will say youv lost money but
wait till the end of the game. by the end of the game AUG will be and i
mean will be very high. sell the lot and boom !!! then the big large some
profit you got do the Lester missions and BOOM you will have enough for
everything put it that way. DO NOT ! waist time trying to blow up business
trucks/plans and beat up there people. that doesn't really work well it
does BUT! the money is appalling better off making a new game and spending
a few hours doing the missions till that mission monkey business and doing
what iv said because you all spend bloody time blowing up there
trucks/planes and all you hear is complaints lol so better off doing a new
game. other company names to put money down on at THAT time too. AirEmu
(there down 46%) at the time really cheap. buy them then at the end of the
game there high by like 20% sell. taco bombs one and life invader! life
invader will be 86.34% low REALLY CHEAP buy and at the end of the game they
will be high by 5% still a profit. sweet hope it helps a tad :)
gabe pan: when i typed in stock i typed sock
REDRUMK1LLA: the stock market is not tethered together by al other gamers on XBL or PSN
