The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) took off once more today. The index closed 0.24% higher at 7,259.5 points – just a freckle off its six-month high. That marks a week-on-week gain of 1.51%.

The Aussie bourse wasn’t influenced by Wall Street on Friday. The New York market had the day off on Thursday as the United States celebrated Thanksgiving.

Interestingly, two of the ASX 200’s most popular sectors tumbled today. The S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) slumped 1.1% while the S&P/ASX 20 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) fell 0.3%.

The latter’s tumble came despite relatively flat oil prices. The Brent crude oil price fell 0.3% to US$85.12 a barrel overnight while the US Nymex crude oil price posted a slight gain in after-hours trade, coming in at US$77.96 a barrel.

Fortunately, all other sectors lifted on Friday. The S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Discretionary Index (ASX: XDJ) led the way, gaining 1.1%. The S&P/ASX 200 Utilities Index (ASX: XUJ) also rose 1.4%.

So, with all that in mind, which ASX 200 stock posted the highest gain to end the week? Keep reading to find out.
