Stock Market

Not gonna spoil any missions but I've now done two missions where you get a message saying you can make money from stocks, basically from insider information cause the missions. IRL I know jack about stocks and I've tried to use these missions to my advantage to win big in the stocks but tbh I don't get what the messages mean. I watch the stocks which I think update every 3-5 mins and look for differences and buy / sell etc but I've never had over a $4 profit from my stocks.

What am I missing? Maybe it's explained later in the game, but I doubt it. I've been doing missions slowly and I'm trying to avoid my old temptation to be an achievement *hore and just enjoy the game. I want to buy properties though and funds aren't very high atm heist / missions could help with that ofc but as I said going slow.

Any tips for the stock market? just finished the 2nd mission where the stock market can be in "your favor" don't want to miss it.

Like that first stock market mission lets just call it Steve Jobs, could I have made lots of money afterwards from stocks or no?

TY for any help and for reading all of that ^

I assume we're talking about Lesters assassination missions. He pretty much tells you every time who to invest in, not to difficult to follow. Go into pause menu and go to dialogue if you didnt catch it.
Stocks take 3-4 days to go up, usually around 50-80% as far as I can see.
