This question already has an answer here:

I have finished the main story and all my main characters ended up making close to 31 Million apiece from the Big one. I only finished one Assassination mission so far which was the Hotel assassination, but i didn't play others because people advised me to reserve the Assassination missions to the end of the game.

This is all i know currently that these assassination missions end up killing some company's CEO and trick is to invest on their opposite number.

I want to know what others used to make money from these missions like if i should invest all my money on opposite company's stock from all the characters and play the mission and another question being once i complete the mission when is a good time to sell the stocks again?

Lester usually hints towards where to make your investments. I have had it go both ways. – Zero Stack Oct 25 '13 at 14:31
Your lucky, I heard you can make over 500m from doing this smart investing, I didn't think of this or read about this until I passed the game as I wanted a blind run through the game. I might replay it. Please tell me how much money you make from this all together from your 31m – Charkz Oct 25 '13 at 14:33
i see mine as a different question. I am asking how much money to invest and whats the prime time to sell them. – Venki Oct 25 '13 at 14:37
why would you invest less than you have? the more you invest, the more you gain. – TZHX Oct 25 '13 at 14:41
@Wojtek'Charkz'Hordyniec i will keep you posted about how much i make from these. – Venki Oct 25 '13 at 14:44

There are a handful of missions that allow you to make a fortune. Following the guide below, and save before each investment just incase something backfires.

  • The Hotel Assassination: Invest in Betapharmasuticals before the mission and cash out afterward.
  • The Redwood Cigarette Assassination: Invest in Debonaire Cigarettes before the mission. After the mission, sell all of your share of Debonaire when it reaches maximum profit (around 80%).
    • Then invest in Redwood. Save your game 8 times to pass (48 hours) for Redwood shares to spike to 300%.
  • The Vice Assassination: Invest in Fruit before the mission and sell afterwards.
  • The Bus Assassination: Invest in Vapid after you complete the mission and cash out afterwards.
  • The Construction Assassination: Invest in Gold Coast Development before the mission and sell afterwards.

so my question do i invest all my money on it completely? and 80% is the max it can go to? – Venki Oct 25 '13 at 14:36
Sorry, i'll edit into the question. Yes invest 100% if you follow this exactly you should be grand. Make saves before the mission each time just in case something back fires. – Charkz Oct 25 '13 at 14:42
sleeping 8 times only passes 48 hours as Michael(see…), and weekends don't count on the stock market so be wary of this when you are waiting for your investments to grow – turbo Oct 25 '13 at 15:11
wow investing in redwood was gold. i am on 220 million already with 3 assassinations to go. – Venki Oct 25 '13 at 22:08
i eventually ended up making 1.3 Billion across all characters at end of all assasinations – Venki Oct 26 '13 at 19:26
