As a share investor, what we’re looking for is consistent performance. With all the talk about China, oil prices, mining, write downs and sell offs, we want shares that can ride the month-to-month market volatility, provide a consistent track record.
So today, I went on the hunt for the top shares from the S&P/ASX 200 (Index: ^AXJO) (ASX: XJO) that are bucking the trend. Shares that have been consistent performers over the short, medium, and long term, in spite of all the turmoil.
I found 24 shares that have consistently provided positive returns in the last year, and the last 6 months, and the last 3 months, and the last month. The shares are listed by size (Market Capitalisation).
I know that we’re in the middle of reporting season, so at the time of writing these are the most up-to-date results:
