Today, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) dished up another solid performance. At the end of the session, the benchmark index finished 0.48% higher at 7,474.4 points.

It was a mixed market for investors on Thursday, but the upwards movers prevailed over the laggards. Notably, iron ore companies were in full form today as the price for the steelmaking commodity continues to rebound amid poor weather in Brazil. On the flip side, the Aussie index was held back by a disappointing showing among tech and healthcare shares.

However, the question is: which shares delivered the biggest returns to investors on the ASX today? Here are the top ten stocks that came through for investors:
