Highlights

  • The stock markets have been highly volatile recently due to the uncertainty created by the Russia-Ukraine war.
  • The FTSE 100 was down today owing to a significant loss in some major financial and mining stocks, like Rio Tinto. 

The stock markets have been highly volatile recently due to the uncertainty created by the Russia-Ukraine war. As the West has been levying sanctions on Russia, many UK companies have altogether halted their business operations in Russia and have cut ties with the country. This has impacted businesses across industries and thus the stocks of many of these companies are losing value.

The market has been going through a roller coaster ride lately. After ending higher on 9 March, the FTSE 100 index is weighted down today yet again due to a significant loss in the values of some major financial and mining stocks. The biggest faller was Rio Tinto, which has also announced that it is abandoning its operations in Russia. Around 12:00 PM on 10 March, the FTSE 100 index was down by 1.27%, standing at 7099.86 points.

Even during these times of economic unpredictability, UK investors are trying to maximise their gains by investing in stocks offering good returns.

Here are 5 FTSE stocks with good yearly returns to keep an eye on.
