When you help the man whose bike gets stolen and retrieve it for him, you'll later find out that he's a millionaire.. he will later give you a reward in the form of stock in his pet food company.. my question is... how can you make money from this stock,as the price shows that it's a failing loss,and the price of said stock is almost worthless?
Remember.. if the seat of pants gets wet.. then you've probably landed in the water or pissed yourself..! PSN I.d. : galixieman
That's usually an early-game random encounter and you can generally make a couple thousand if not just a few hundred. That one isn't meant to net you millions of dollars.
There's one random encounter where you need to get the NPC to the airport and he gives you a stock tip that you can use to get some decent money, but if I remember correctly, that one only peaks at around 70%, so unless you dump hundreds of thousands into it, you're not going to get a whole lot out (not to mention it drops extremely fast after it peaks).
All this is meant for end-game and there's not that many reasons to need billions for end-game since this game just isn't fun after you beat the story.
