The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) rebounded slightly this week after two consecutive weeks of poor performance. The benchmark index ended the session 0.74% higher at 6,576.40 points.

Nine of the index’s 11 sectors closed higher, led by the S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ)’s 6% gain. It was likely driven upwards following decent gains on Wall Street overnight.

Meanwhile, the S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) was the market’s worst performer, falling 1.5%. Coal shares were the sector’s biggest weight despite the price of coal lifting overnight. Though, lower oil prices likely also weighed on the index.

But beyond the gloom, many of the ASX’s top 200 shares outperformed on Friday. Here were the best of the bunch:
