Indian stocks on American bourses saw their total market capitalisation rise by $468 million, even as seven companies witnessed value erosion this week.
The 16 entities listed on the New York Stock Exchange and the Nasdaq witnessed their cumulative market valuation climb to $468 million for the week ended August 21, led by private sector lender HDFC Bank, which alone gained $502 million.
However, the total gain during the week was offset by the losses suffered by seven firms totalling $617 million, with copper producer Sterlite Industries and auto maker Tata Motors losing the most.
IT bellwether Infosys Technologies saw its valuation jump by $202 million to $24.21 billion, while that of private sector lender ICICI Bank rose by $166 million to $17.29 billion.
Among the entities trading as American Depository Receipts (ADRs), Sterlite Industries ended the week shedding as much as $297 million in its valuation to $9.3 billion while second major loser, Tata Motors lost $212 million at $4.98 billion.
