The medical device company focusing on oncology is the best-performing tip of all.

Race leader Angie Ellis, of 20 20 Investments, has a portfolio value of $122,001, fuelled by the strong performance of Magmatic Resources.

Her original $10,000 investment in the gold and copper explorer is now worth $23,333, down from $25,000 last week. It is the second-best performer of all.

Dan Silver, co-chief executive of Stake, moves to fifth place from second last week. Like Ellis, he also holds Magmatic Resources. However, the share prices of some of his other picks, including Navarre Minerals and BetMakers Technology, fell during the week.
