I found out about this to late and have already done the assassinations missions already. I invested in gold coast and made about 150-300k for each character but not as much as some of you here.

There is no Other way to make millions? What does the final mission pay?

But if you want to double your money a further two more times you can.

On the 2nd mission follow his steps and when you get to the part when you've sold all your shares for Debonaire Cigs put all your money into Redwood cigarettes(if its still in the red). I got an 81% increase for debonaire and made about 50mil but I got a 300% increase in redwood so i went from 26mil to 250million just on one mission!

Then I did the same on the 3rd mission, get the best profit you can from fruit(only 31% for me) and then put EVERYTHING into Facade (which is the rival company) and then save and sleep to you've got the highest profit you can(about 98% for me).

So having finished the game and leaving the assassination missions till last i went from each character having around $27million to the stupid amount of:

$1,240,106,935

That's going to keep me in hookers and ammunition for quite a while.
how many in game days does it take for redwoods to go green again? all mine is doing is going down more lol

edit: nevermind, doing the save thing 1 more time to advance time made the stock sky rocket to 300% lol

Yes I do. I stated in the OP to save BEFORE each mission and then put money in to the stocks. The 4th mission changes that and I make you aware of it. The 5th mission is then back to the same formula.

Also, for the second mission, put all your money in Debonaire, and after getting about an 80% return, sell up and put all your money into Redwood. You'll get about a 300% return in a couple of days.

Please note I have not had my first assassination mission yet.

So a shot in the dark here, is autosave enabled? If so disable it.

I have money invested in PIS and HAL, the update happened, autosave enabled give me -100, disabled and profit made.

Just so people know before it's too late, as it's probably too late for me at this point to see any profit, the stock in Bilkinton Pharmaceuticals(rival of Beta) is up to 145.38 from a low of 72.94, and Redwood Cigarettes(rival of Debonair) is up to 216.05 from a low of 53.63. So basically after you sell off your shares, go ahead and buy stock from the company you just sabotaged because it will rise again. Those companies are both on LCN.

I haven't progressed far enough into the game to see about the other companies.

I just finished the hotel assassination mission (invested in Betta before starting the mission) but my return percent won't go above 51.18%. Did I do something wrong?

My first mission done, the highest BetaPharmaceuticals was 33.58%

Currently:
Michael -$10,160,828
Franklin - $8,078,535
Trevor - $225,922

Michael and Franklin can buy properties now but not Trevor.

Read the instructions again. It's quite clear that the 4th mission is the only one where you buy after the mission.

"On the second mission, pour all of your money in to Debonaire Cigarettes, and then do the same as last time. On the third mission, buy in to Fruit (found on BAWSAQ again). On the fourth mission, don't buy anything. As soon as the mission is over, spend everything on Vapid as it's just tanked. Keep an eye on it and sell when it goes high again, and then on the final (5th) mission buy in to GoldCoast."

I just ask coz I'm going for just the missions and following the instructions but nothing is happening. Does it matter if I hadn't done the first missions investments?

Does the Redwood trick still work with the patch?

I've invested after selling Debonaire and I was at $36million and I then dumped into Redwood and it hasn't done anything and I've gone like a week and half in game with nothing. What is the actual prices of the stock when it's low and high? I might've missed it. Redwood stock is around $63 in my game.

EDiT: I did in fact miss it. I went to previous save and tried it again and apparently not only did I miss the Redwood but also the high point on Debonaire as well. So it does in fact still work. $224,286,737 going into next assassination mission!

During the 1st ass mission you place stock on BetaPharmaceuticals. When you take these out i put stock into Bilkington on the LCN which is the rival company and got roughly 97% profit on. Im sitting on 3mil on Michael, 1.2mil on Franklin and about 300k on Tev after the 1st heist.

- 1st Mission: Buy Betta at 304. Sleep three times, sell at 371.82. 81.5% increase. Invest in AUG at 303. Gets to 435.77 after the final heist. Worldwide FM is also worth a look. Complete the main story.
- 2nd Mission: Buy Debonair beforehand. Sell after it peaks. Buy Redwood immediately after you sell and wait till it peaks at 300%, then sell it
- 3rd Mission: Buy iFruit before the mission and sell at 495.2. Buy Facade and sell when it increases by 50%
- 4th mission: Buy Vapid after the mission and sell when it peaks.
Buy Gold Coast LCN before the mission and sell when it peaks.
Buy Tinkle and go meet the hitchhiker on the West Coast Pacific Highway. Sell afterwards.
You should make the maximum $2.147 billion comfortably.
Anyone tried this yet? I've bought Redwood stock after selling Debonair but its taking FOREVER to increase to 300%, if anything its decreasing!?

EDIT: I slept another 18-24 hours, checking the stocks every time and eventually I got the 300% on each character!
