One of the most interesting elements in GTA5 is the stock market. I understand that often Lester will have assassination missions for the player, such as the one involving the LifeInvader CEO, and was wondering how I could profit off missions such as these? For example, LifeInvader's stock took quite a hit following the mission, and I was wondering how I could short sell its stock to make a profit?
Yes, you can profit off of these missions. What you can do is when Lester gives you a mission, he normally says something stock related. The most obvious of which are assassination missions against CEO's. Invest in the opposing companies stock! Once he says something stock related, cancel the mission (if you want ALL characters to invest) and make that stock purchase. Then, the stock you bought will sky-rocket, and allow you to make loads of money.

You can't short sell, but when the stocks go down, they will cost less. IF you buy Lifeinvaders stocks when they are low, you can make a profit later when they release another tech. You can also go to the airport and destroy some AirEmu planes to make their stock go down and FlyUS stocks will go up.
