you say "huge" but what was your actual profit

i did that and yes the stock % went up but i only made like 12k investment which unlocked the achievement

same for when i dropped the guy off at the airport and he told me to invest in Tinkle and it only went up 20% not to mention the stock shares were already expensive to begin with, which is the main issue.

if the Lifeinfader stock ever rose significantly from its negative 500%(scripted) and you were able to get a heads up on that, then the Madoff insider-trading stuff that they're trying to mimick would actually be taking place, not 10-20% on stocks that already have double/triple digit priced shares


the ones that seem like they might make sense are the car insurance since as you crash cars you'd be making money, and maybe ammu-nation, and other stuff but untill someone actually figures it all out and makes an extensive stock guide, we wont really know for sure. also when Online comes out, maybe it'll move and when Rockstar has a specific online event for a specific mode we can figure things in that mode will effect certain stock companies...idk just seems like "chump change" based on how the amoung of money the game hands out for other stuff

82% more than you put in is huge profit. It doesn't matter how much you put in to it, because you're going to end up with 82% more.

Obviously utilizing it when you have a lot of money is better, as you will almost double what you had. If you're only putting $12,000 in, you aren't getting the full benefit. You'd only get about $21,840 back, which is easy enough to make anyway. If you invest $2,000,000, you could get about $3,640,000 back. That extra $1,640,000 is a lot harder to make in the game.

You need to invest a lot of money in to it to reap the benefits. Completing the story will give you a lot of money, so it's perhaps best to leave these missions open until then.

The Assassination missions are unlocked after the "Fame or Shame" story mission. You need to send Franklin to the green L on the map to start them.

Everyone says "save assassination missions till the end of game when you'll have a lot of money".

I am stuck before "Blitz Play" mission and have done all the preparation for it, but I can't start this heist (it doesn't appear on the map) and the game tells me to do assassination for Lester first.

So this means I can't actually save at least the first assassination till the end of the game?

With BAWSAQ down because of Rockstar Social Club not working, that completely stopped my playthrough.

You could just do the first mission and forfeit the money from the stock market. Just make sure to invest big in later missions. I forgot that you need to do the "Hotel Assassination" mission before you can start "Blitz Play". Sorry.

So I just invested in Fruit and after 12 hours the stock crashed. I'm in the red, down a few million. I invested prior to the mission. A warning for others to possibly use a second save.

damn i already did like 2 of them with Franklin.

i bet the same would go with the random events like the guy working for "Tinkle" if you just dont pick him up till you have a few million then do it.

i plan on replaying the singleplayer but hopefully by that point all the nuances of the stock market will be figured out, and we can know how to exploit it but even the bradygames guide doesnt even cover it and simply call it a "gamble" outside of few the scripted "insider trading" tips you get during the game.

If it's gone down, can't you just reload your save and take the money back out?

No need to apologize, great guide and you put a lot of effort responding to everyone, it was just confusing no one mentioned it.

LOL, i wonder if thats cause the online is screwed up and nobody can even log in

its still pretty damn expensive over 600 per share

HawkAndLittle is the lowest price but im wondering how they're different from AmmuNation, its only .76 cents a share, maybe when Online launches that will be where people buy guns

I don't know if its been said but you can also make money on the back end too. I don't know about the first mission but for the second one after you sell your stock you can then buy the rival company and make out too. This is because their stock will rebound.

Unfortunately, no. Because I only used one save file. Unless I can reload to an earlier point. Which I doubt, no games do that.

Logging into Social Club I assume? I've had no issues with it, I've been on it since Tuesday. And yes it is, but I'm at a -1.2% return. I'm losing millions if it doesn't go back up. Minor issue here.

Put over 100m across all characters on Vapid like you said. Saved it a couple times and its still staying at 0%.

Ok so the BalSaq ones dont seem to be effected by saving....not sure. Anyway im now finished all missions and have a total of 135m with each character. Best way to get to the magic 150m so i can buy the golf club?

no, the ifruit app itself has had alot of issues, with people complaining on the rockstar support site, so that could effect it as "not being used" and thus lower the stock in game.

im assuming we'll see large swings once the Online starts up, depending on what people do, ill bet any type of insurance will skyrocket with people dying and crashing stuff

Let's hope. I managed to get the stocks back to 0 profit so I ended up getting all my money back and then I sold em all. As for the app, Android -_-

Hmmm seems like even after doing all this and having 135m per character it looks like i still wont be able to get the golf course. Even if i had 150m with one character would i really want to spend all there money on one property....?

Question about his. Finally noticed the BAWSAQ working yesterday so I did the first assassin mission. I had a little over 1 million a piece for each guy. Invested every penny into the stock listed in thread. The stock rose 81 percent, but I only made about 800 k per guy. Is this correct????? Just seems like I didn't make very much. Don't know if rockstar fixed this maybe??

80% of 1 million is 800,000.

I can confirm this, although your stock prices were quite a bit different from mine. My RWC prices were roughly $17/share before the mission, after mission they tanked to $2.75 after pulling my money out it was up to $11.71/share. After the redwood cigarette assassination mission I didn't the investment in Debonaire cigarettes however after I got my 82% return I invested all of the money I had into RWC (roughly 45 million per character) and got a huge 300% - 326% return for all three of my characters. All I ended up doing was a few strangers and freaks stuff while waiting to pull my money out and do the next assassination mission.

All three of my characters are sitting fat, dumb, and happy with roughly $475 million each with one assassination mission to go.

Thanks for the guide Callum, and thanks Teslasnip

Anything more than a 10-20% return is amazing. You earn several hundred thousand dollars in the US on a return over 20%, chances are, the SEC is going to investigate.
