The Sunday Times has released its Top 100 Companies list, which tracks the best-performing businesses on the JSE – recognising those with the highest shareholder returns over the past five years.
The share-price performance of every company listed on the JSE is calculated on the basis of R10,000 invested over five years – from October 1 2010 to the end of September 2015.
The winner is the company that earns the most for its shareholders in terms of share-price growth, after taking into account normal and special dividends and bonus shares reinvested.
With an average annual compound return of 72.70%, Fortress Income Fund Limited earned top spot in the rankings.
EOH was the top-performing tech company, with an average annual compound return of 69%.
