Engineering giant Rolls-Royce has been one of the biggest stock market casualties of the past week. Shares in the business rattled 12% lower during Friday trading after the company issued its second profit warning of the year, noting that.
The jittery market of late has been punishing companies severely for anything less than positive newsflow. Master investor Neil Woodford has taken the opportunity to up his stake in some stocks that have suffered from the market's fretfulness.
However, such a short-term view disguises the fact that over the last five years, all three of these firms have significantly outperformed the wider index - Rolls-Royce, for example, has gained 108% since 2009, compared to just 30% for the FTSE 100.
