Thanks! I'm going to dump Lifeinvader. I read something that says it never comes back. I wish I could see my investments from the iPhone app and trade there.
Ok. I think it varies from game to game.
For instance, I watched LifeInvader drop to .90, grabbed a ton of it on all three characters rode it all the way to $2.75, then bailed, made a ton of money. Others have mentioned in their games LifeInvader goes up a ton in the late game....Tested in my game and not working for me. It always drops, the trick is to be out before the drop. For instance, right now it's at around $2.15 a share in my game, I will probably jump back in around $1.95, which is the current low on the stock chart. Then bail out when it hits $2.50 or higher.
Regardless of what the lowest stock is in your game find it, buy it at the low on the charts and sit back and enjoy the ride. (this varies from game to game but ALL the stocks I have tested so far have come back from their lows at some point, just depends on the individual's patience threshhold) Don't forget to quicksave on your cellphone, when it does go up. That way, if you get stuck on a mission when you can't sell stock (which does happen!) and the random Rockstar BS meter kicks in and drops your stock while you can't do anything you always have a saved game.
Mostly, the stocks are random besides the story event missions and random events. There is a guy on the west coast highway who needs a ride to the airport, rush him there, and you get a stock tip:) Feel free to save him or the other events until after the main story so you can put more cash in.
