After starting off deep in the red, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) regained some ground to close 0.08% lower at 7,316.3 points.

Its wobbly performance came amid the release of the latest Australian consumer price index (CPI) data, compiled by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). It found inflation rose 7% over the 12 months to the March quarter – a notable drop on the 7.8% read on the prior period.

That’s likely good news for interest rates. The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) board will meet on Tuesday to consider what’s next for the cash rate.

Leading the Aussie bourse on Wednesday was the S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ). It jumped 0.9% despite oil prices having dumped more than 2% overnight.

Meanwhile, the S&P/ASX 200 Financial Index (ASX: XFJ) slipped slightly, falling 0.05%. It followed a 49% tumble posted by stock in New York-listed peer First Republic Bank. Investors dumped the stock after it reported US$105 billion of deposit outflows for the first quarter.

So, with all that in mind, let’s dive into the 10 ASX 200 shares that outperformed all others in today’s session.
