  • The year 2022 has been a year full of volatility due to global cues and economic uncertainties
  • The S&P/ASX 200 index has moved about 1.6% upwards in the last one year as of 1 December 2022
  • Many companies have given exceptional results during these times of uncertainty

The year 2022 has been a hell of a ride for investors in terms of volatility. The S&P/ASX 200 index, which has majorly been on a rising trend from the lows of 4,500 levels seen from March 2020 to August 2021, has given several crests and troughs in the year.

The market tried its level best to break its all-time high of 7,630 (seen in August 2021) in January and April this year; however, both times the market gave up its strength and went to the levels of 6400s.

The recent uptrend starting from the latter part of September last year has made the market give a return of almost 1.6% in one year, as of 1 December 2022. This also includes the last one-month appreciation of more than 7% in the S&P/ASX 200 market index.

Many stocks have outperformed the market and given handsome returns during the year.

With this backdrop, let's have a look at six ASX shares that've grown more than twice in the last one year.
