The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) bounced back for most of Friday before plunging into the red, weighed down by energy shares. The index was 0.43% lower at 6,539.90 points as of the final close of the week.   

The S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) fell more than 3.3% today, weighed down by oil prices.

Global oil prices fell between 1.2% and 3.7% on Thursday as the OPEC+ confirmed it would increase output in August as much as previously announced amid supply concerns. The fall saw oil prices recording their first monthly decline in 2022.

ASX 200 materials shares also underperformed on the back of lower base metal prices, after the price of copper recorded its worst quarter since 2011.

But it wasn’t all dire today. Real estate and industrials bolstered the market, with the sectors each gaining more than 1%.

All in all, eight of the ASX 200’s 11 sectors ended Friday’s session in the green.

But which ASX share bested the rest to take out the crown of today’s top performer? Read on to find out.
