Stock Market

So I kind of know how the stock market works. I just don't know where I'd find rival companies or anything like that to take them out. I know the assassination missions are apparently really good for the stock markets but I already started the first one and I'm not sure if Lester will tell me about stocks during the opening cutscene for the first assassination.

I basically want some tips on what to invest into and how to make profit from those shares from my own actions.

EDIT: Also, does it matter who invests in the stocks and who takes them? Or do you have to invest in stocks with each character? I've wondered that.

Each character (from what I have played) has their own money, and their own Stock Market portfolio. Each person is separate from the others in terms of buying and selling stock.

Buy low, sell high.

Not sure if you can manipulate the market like your post implies. Maybe! Would be cool though.

I've been watching the names and the people and places missions are happening to try and work out if you can manipulate the market. So far it just seems to be that you could lose alot of money though lol

A lot of the time before an assassination mission, Lester will mention the names of companies involved. For example, he said he was targeting Redwood Cigarettes, so you would buy from the opposing cigarette company. I managed to double Franklin's money from ~45,000 to ~90,000 from this.
