The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) recovered some of last week's losses on Monday as materials shares soared. The index closed 1.54% higher at 6,779.4 points.

Its gain came after all three of the US' major indices closed Friday in the green. That helped the Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJX: .DJI), the S&P 500 Index (SP: .INX), and the Nasdaq Composite Index (NASDAQ: .IXIC) to each post their best week in around four months, over which they gained 4.9%, 4.7%, and 4.2% respectively.

The S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) started this week on the right foot, rocketing 2.5%. Its gains came amid news China's GDP lifted 3.9% year-on-year in the third quarter.

Monday also proved a good one for tech stocks, with the S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) jumping 2.2% after spending three consecutive sessions in the red.

It wasn't such a brilliant day for the S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ), however. It unperformed, gaining just 0.7% despite oil prices lifting modestly on Friday.

The Brent crude oil price lifted 1.2% to US$93.50 a barrel while the US Nymex crude oil price gained 0.6% to US$85.05 a barrel.

At the end of Monday's trade, all 11 of the ASX 200's sectors were in the green. But which share outperformed all others? Keep reading to find out.
