Emerging Market ADRs: Winners and Losers

Stocks in this article: SOHU GRO SPRD CBAK SVM NCTY CHBT

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Global exchanges declined last week on a wave of risk aversion, sparked off by the political unrest in Egypt.

India's Nifty and Brazil's Bovespa shed 4.1% each last week, whereas the Shanghai Composite Index gained 3.1%. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones and the S&P 500 edged 0.4% and 0.5% lower, respectively.
