The best-performing ASX 200 share today was resources business Syrah Resources Ltd (ASX: SYR), its share price rose 5.7%.

Shares of retail business Super Retail Group Ltd (ASX: SUL) went up 2.75% after announcing who the new CEO will be.

The BHP Group Ltd (ASX: BHP) share price fell 1.3% today after it gave the market its December 2018 production update.

Resource business Oil Search Limited (ASX: OSH) also fell 2.8% after giving investors its fourth quarter report.

The share price of Collection House Limited (ASX: CLH) rose 1.9% due to announcing it had made a strategic $8.5 million investment in Volt.

Shares of TPG Telecom Ltd (ASX: TPM) ended the day down 0.6% with the ACCC supposedly delaying the date on which it will hand down its final verdict of the TPG-Vodafone Australia merger.

The worst performer in the ASX 200 today was car dealership business Automotive Holdings Group Ltd (ASX: AHG), its share price fell 4.2%.

Finally, the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (ASX: CBA) share price dropped 1.2%, perhaps because the final report from the Royal Commission is due next week, but also perhaps because Volt Bank received APRA clearance to start receiving deposits from the public. Morgan Stanley thinks the CBA dividend is at risk of being cut.
