This week is shaping up to be one to forget for the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO). It posted its second loss of the week today, falling 0.07% to close at 7,476.7 points.

It follows a similarly poor session on Wall Street overnight. The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJX: .DJI) slumped 0.77% on Monday’s session overseas, while the S&P 500 Index (SP: .INX) dropped 1.3% and the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index (NASDAQ: .IXIC) slid 2%.

It makes sense, then, that the S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) posted the day’s worst performance. It fell 1.3% on Tuesday, weighed down by the Megaport Ltd (ASX: MP1) share price’s 25% tumble on the back of the company’s quarterly earnings.

Mining shares also broadly suffered today, with the S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) falling 0.8%.

But not all was dire. The S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Staples Index (ASX: XSJ) posted the biggest gain, rising 2.3%.

So, with all that in mind, let’s dive into the 10 shares outperforming all others on Tuesday.
