Top performing firm.

ANGLESEY Mining was the best performing share in Wales in terms of total shareholder returns (TSR) during February, according to the new Stockwatch Wales report by Clerical Medical.

Across the wider market, the total return of the FTSE 100 Index rose 1.9%, while total returns for the FTSE Small Cap Index increased by 5.1%. The FTSE All Share experienced a 2.2% increase, slightly higher than the average gain of 1.6% for February since 1987.

Of the seven largest equities analysed, the best was Anglesey Mining, which delivered a 17% rise in TSR.

The company, which operates at Parys Mountain, near Amlwch, and Labrador, Canada, recently said prices for base metals had fallen, but it expected demand from China and Asia would lead to a more positive outlook.

TSR is a measure of the total a stock has returned to an investor in terms of both share price growth and dividend yield, assuming the dividend payments are reinvested.
