Best performing stocks on the ASX in 2023 (Updated weekly)

We've collected the top performing stocks in Australia so that you don't need to.

Looking for the best performing stocks in Australia? We update this guide every Monday with the 10 top performing stocks on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) over the past week.

We also display updated performance data from the last 12 months and 5-year period.

How did we get this list?

We scan the performance data of all ASX-listed stocks to find the 10 best performing each week.

To exclude some of the more volatile penny stocks, only stocks with market capitalisations of more than $500 million are included.

Before you dive in, it's important to be aware that past performance is no guarantee of future success. A great performing stock might decline in the future. So you should always do your research and look at your own individual needs and investment strategy to decide what stock is right for you.
