For about the past week. I have had zero activity on my shares market trading. Have everything set to automatic for the public companies i control and nothing at all. Was going pretty good for awhile then it all went flat. Just wondered if anyone else had similar problems.

What are you trying to do? Sell the shares? The P/E isn't very good, so investment shares probably aren't buying... AFAIK, P/E is a major factor in whether investment shares buy a particular stock. Your country controlled publics became enterprise controlled publics, so now they pay CRU and don't make as much profit. I would guess that this has had a negative impact on your corps' P/E ratings.

I don't think it's a bug/problem.

Don't ask me what to do about it though, I'm still trying to work out the intricacies of the share market. Maybe some other share trading expert will be more helpful.

Whenever I notice that the value of a Corp drops to less than half the cash on hand, I move the corp to one of my countries and buy 51% of stocks in my country the stock has been relocated. Then you can put out a repurchase order. I then make sure 100% of production is contracted. Buying 51% of shares means you've generated space to so your enterprise can locate another corp in your country.

I think that when you get to 100%, the corp will become a state owned corp and you'll lose some of the upgrades-if you're at or near the max upgrades. Of course it's possible the upgrades were degraded when you go from enterprise control to country controlled public. Does anyone know if that's the case?

Also for public corps there can't be a hostile takeover so long as you keep 51%. If on the other hand if you decide to sell you can merely offer shares and stick some other CEO with an underperforming corp.

Please note I'm just stumbling along trying to make a few extra SC$ and I could be totally wrong on all this.

i did notice that one of my country run public corps has been at 100 % for along time now and does not convert to a state corp. You think i should inform gamemaster ?

If you own 100% but stocks are split between your enterprise and country my experience is they'll stay public. If /shares/Listshareholders/ shows all shares owned by just your country or your enterprise, that seems very peculiar to me.
