The PDSnet Shares list is made up of the top performing shares on the JSE. Once a share meets our criteria it is added to the list and the percentage change since that day is monitored as well as its annual growth. Despite different sectors and risk levels, the shares on this list have all done superbly on the JSE. When selecting shares, it is important for you to acknowledge whether a share on this list is a blue chip, a penny stock or somewhere in between. The industry that a share is a part of is also significant and deserves your attention. We generally recommend that you avoid commodity shares as they tend to be volatile. Alternatively, it is good to know the defensive shares in the market, which are shares that still go up even in a recession. Ultimately, the majority of the shares on this shares list go up and you should keep an eye on what is added to the list so that opportunities are not missed.
