What options are available for me to increase the size of my citizens' investment fund?

Buy low and sell high.
Buy cheap shares & collect dividends.

how do you search stocks? And how do you stop the computer auto selling all your stocks? I have bought up a lot of stocks for my fund, to find out the next day that they are gone, and that corp I bought up sells for much more than I had bought for, and probably more than what the AI sold it for.

There is an Automation setting for each country, "Buy and Sell shares for your investment fund automatically". Have you unchecked that?

ok, it seems I had it checked. I didnt know that was an option. The damn computer has been buying stock such as Assasin Military Services for 24,156.16 SC$ and is trying to sell it now for 1.92 SC$. The automated system suck for this.

What does a good investment fund do for you any way?

Your sims become happier Matt. Happier sims means increased productivity which in turn means more cash for you in the long run plus everything else that comes from a rich country such as a higher birth rate and increased welfare.....

ok, what should a good investment fund look like. I had built up a 175M per month profit from dividend, but the computer sold it all off before I can stop auto sells. Im back up to 19M per month. Just wondering what a good investment fund should look at, and what is a good strategy to buying stocks?
Plus, can I buy up control of a company so I get the profits, but it does not effect my employment?

how can yo tell how much you earn as dividend from the shares you buy?

Watch the net cash of your fund. It is almost all dividends unless you actually sell stock at a profit. And no, you cannot gain control of a corporation that way, unless you do so with your ceo. The game will not let you buy a controlling interest with your fund.

I found a glitch in the system I think. In my portfolio, it says I bought 12 stocks of HoN Sugar for -98,282,953.95 SC$. How can you buy stock at a negative number, and does that mean they paid me -1179395447.40 SC$ for those 12 stocks? Or is it an error?

My suspicion with the negative stock value is that it is determined by the price paid P for each stock S at the original time purchase (as a lump amount: P * S = X) so that X / S = the value of each stock. When you buy new stock, the P * S for the new stock is added to the original X, meaning (Po * So) + (Pn + Pn) = Xo + Xn = Xtotal and Xtotal / S = stock value... it averages the value of the new and old stock. However, when selling, the same formula can create negative numbers because if (Po * So) - (Pn * Sn) = Xo - Xn which means if Xn > Xo, then Xtotal / S will be a negative number. This would be the simplest method of storing that number.
Such that if it says I bought 10 stocks at $1 each originally and sold 5 for $3 each, we get:
(10 * 1) - (5 * 3) = 10 - 15 = -5 / 5 = -$1 in the price paid field.
Thanks for the suggestions.
