The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) plummeted on Tuesday, dropping 0.92% to finish the session at 7,267.4 points.

Its day in the red came amid the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) board’s May meeting, wherein it hiked interest rates once more.

The official cash rate now stands 0.25% higher at 3.85% – 3.5% higher than it was this time last year when the first of what is now 11 rate hikes was implemented.

The RBA made the move despite admitting inflation has passed its peak – coming in at 7% last month.

Leading today’s tumble was the S&P/ASX 200 Real Estate Index (ASX: XRE), which fell 2.1%.

It was also a tough day for the S&P/ASX 200 Communication Index (ASX: XTJ) and the S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ). They fell 1.8% and 1.5% respectively.

But it wasn’t all red across the boards. The S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) rose 0.02% despite the Computershare Ltd (ASX: CPU) share price dropping 4.8% after the company reaffirmed its full-year guidance.

So, with all that in mind, let’s take a look at which ASX 200 share outperformed all others in today’s session.
