Three housebuilders, including Persimmon, are amongst the 10 best-performing FTSE 100 stocks of 2017

Housebuilders and airline stocks have made solid gains this year, but the FTSE 100 company leading the way in 2017 was UAE-focused healthcare provider NMC Health (NMC), according to data from Morningstar Direct.

Investors focused on the UK’s blue-chip index have had a quieter year than some, with gains of around 5% year to date. That modest performance can be attributed to a recovery in the pound after a heavy depreciation in the second half of last year.
