Mining stocks rose from the bottom to the top in 2016; becoming the biggest FTSE 100 winners of 2016, reversing their losing streak of 2015. Falling commodity prices dragged down mining stocks in 2015, and it is the oil price recovery which has contributed to this year’s share price rally.

Mining companies top the list of the FTSE 100 stocks with the biggest gains so far in 2016. Data from Morningstar Direct shows Anglo American (AAL) shares jumped 159% year to date, while Fresnillo (FRES) gained 159% and Glencore (GLEN) is up 104%. This is a huge contrast to the performance of these mining stocks in 2015: Anglo American fell 70% in 2015 and Glencore lost 66% – the biggest FTSE 100 losers of 2015.

Energy stocks have also appeared on the biggest risers list; Royal Dutch Shell (RDSB) is up 43.5% year to date, while BP (BP.) has gained 31.7%, according to Morningstar Direct.
