The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) broke a three-day losing streak on Friday, lifting 0.37% to close at 7,220 points. That leaves it 1.22% lower week-on-week.

Today’s gains were driven by the S&P/ASX 200 Real Estate Index (ASX: XRE), which rose 2%.

The S&P/ASX 200 Financials Index (ASX: XFJ) also ended the day 0.3% higher amid earnings from market giants Macquarie Group Ltd (ASX: MQG) and ANZ Group Holdings Ltd (ASX: ANZ).

The Macquarie share price slumped 0.2% on the bank’s full-year earnings, while stock in ANZ lifted 1.4% after the smallest of the big four posted its half-year results.

But it wasn’t a good day for all sectors. The S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) fell 0.3% despite the Block Inc (ASX: SQ2) share price gaining 3.3% on the company’s quarterly results.

So, with all that considered, let’s take a look at which ASX 200 share took out the top spot on the index on Friday.
