Is there a way to get Investment Funds to let go of stock? It seems there's a way to limit your bidding to below market value (using the Limited Price strategy) but I can't seem to find a way to bid higher than market value to get an Investment Fund to release some stock of yours that they purchased.

If an investment fund has shares in a corp that you control, you can get them to sell by raising the PE. The easiest way to do this, though Treasurer uses a different method, is to lower production. Sales will fall and the PE will rise.

The Gamemaster never lets go, so give up hope of getting that back under your control.

offer about 10% above market price for shares and they should sell. Dont buy too many in one go or price will jump. limited price set to market value + 10%.

It used to be that investment funds bought when shares had a P/E between 30 and 70. That would also mean investment funds won't ever sell between the high and low numbers. I think the numbers have changed but I haven't looked into it.

Dropping production is one way to drop earnings (E). if you lower E then P/E will go up very high.

You can also move the corporation to one of your countries and raise salaries to obscene heights. Income taxes used to be 58%. Taxes will also cut into earnings.
