The week in stocks

Confessions and profit warnings at AGMs dominated the week and cast a shadow over the outlook.

A quiet week on the data front left the ASX 200 to determine its own fortune for the week. All up, the market was pushed 1.7 per cent higher, led by the materials sector, as the benchmark index flirts with moving above 5,400 points.

Company specific moves were driven by commentary coming from annual general meetings, which is doubling as a confession session for some and quarterly production updates.
