Today, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) cemented yet another disappointing performance for investors. At the end of trade, the benchmark index was 2.49% further into the doldrums at 6,961.6 points. This also represents the first session close below 7,000 points since May last year.

No sector was spared in today's ASX selloff, with all sectors falling 1% or more throughout the day. This time around we cannot place the blame on the performance of Wall Street overnight — given that it finished in the green. Instead, higher-than-expected inflation figures appear to be a catalyst for selling across the ASX on Tuesday.

The energy sector ended up faring the worst of the bunch today, falling 4.3%. Followed closely behind by tech, miners, and real estate.

However, the question is: which shares delivered the biggest returns to investors on the ASX today? Here are the top ten stocks that came through for investors:
