if only i realised how much of a good idea it was to invest when i did the assassination missions but i did them before the game was out so bawsaq wasnt even available then noe ive got between 10-18mill per character and got no way of knowing what the best stock options are cause i need to make 210 million so i can buy the golf courses and movie theaters

I don't know, I just checked it after I saw this thread and that's what I saw.

I'm not too sure then. Some stocks seem to be very hard to judge.

`The LCN matket seems to be completly random for alot of the stocck. I've been loading up my current file and investing in some stock and then just sleeping in my safehouse bed without saving and if i make a profit i sell it and save and restart the process.

I held on to my Vapid stock for a while...it was static for a long time. After doing a couple odd missions (Story/Strangers And Freaks) I checked again, and it rose up...I just made a fortune.

I just want to add to this topic, pay attention to random missions/people on the street! I just dropped a guy off at the airport (not main mission, a random event) and he told me to invest in tinkle. It went up about 20% in a day

Edit: Argh, don't know what to do, going to go ahead with the next main mission but this is annoying i cant get two chars equipped now without pulling money out.

Once you buy stock on BAWSAQ, it appears on LCN. I know it's only supposed to be for real-life changes, but it still seems to be affected by the game as well. It's rather confusing.

My brother just did the third one, and says he hasn't seen the stock go past 25% increase. Do all the stocks reach an approximate 80+% in profit?

I sold my Debonair a little too early, about 80% for Franklin and was up to 87% by the time I'd switched to my third character. Not sure what the max profit would have been. On the first one, it stayed at 81.5% for a while, sounds like a confirmed peak.

I've done this now a couple of times and it's works just fine but I have a question for others doing this. How long are you holding onto these stocks before you sell them? Do they just continue to go up after the assassination missions? So far I've sold mine a few missions later because I put all of my money into the stocks before the missions.

I just go to a house afterwards and sleep for 2-4 days checking the stock price after every save. When it stops going up, I sell all the stock on all three characters' phones.

I put a tonne of money on Fruit, did the mission and slept for 3 days. No change at all. Slept for a week, still no change. Did a few more missions. No change. Something's f**ked..

Vapid does work. After the mission the stock falls 60%, and starts climbing back up. So invest after the 4th assassination.

Oh boy, you think my hundreds of hours in Fallout would have taught me something. I didn't even think to sleep.

So i found this out eventually myself :P

Assassination Mission #3 – The Vice Assassination
This one shows up after you finish ‘I Fought the Law…’

Not going looking for when that mission is though for fear of spoilers. But i know what to look out for now

Hey, I'm still trying to figure out how to replicate video game sleep-saves in real life.

I had morning sex with my wife about two years ago that was easily the best we'd ever had ... wish I could reload that save over and over

Seeing the same thing here. Not going above 25%.

EDIT:

Third mission/Fruit: It didn't go above 25%, but that's probably because it's tied to BAWSAQ.

Fourth mission/Vapid: You might want to alter the OP slightly. For this stock you're supposed to buy after the mission (Lester says this to you) as it's supposed to drop, and then a few days later it will go back to normal. However, you're still correct that it's glitchy. Even though the news said the CEO died and the stock went down I saw no change.

Fifth mission/GoldCoast: This worked like a charm, I sold when I was up 81.3%. Again, this probably only works because it's the LCN.

I've edited the fourth mission, as a lot of people are reporting that it is in fact working.

how much of a jump are you guys getting in your stocks?

I started the third mission out with 27 million and did the vice assassination and slept for 3 days and it went up to 33 million then for vapid I bought right after and slept for a week (got that from another forum) and it went up to 86 million I think. the final mission it went from 86 to 146 million and it peaked about 6 hours after the job, not three days

is that about right or are you guys getting like a 100 million jump each job?

It does work, it's worked for me and many others. It may take longer, but like I said make a Quick Save before so that if it isn't working you can go back and try again.
