Here are the best performing stocks listed the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) for the 2005-2006 financial year. As a trader and you run through this list, it makes you wonder... is it worth your while trading actively, or simply spending the time researching a bunch of companies and simply waiting and see if it brings a return? I looked at this issue previously in blog entry.
