5 Winners in Emerging Markets ADRs

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) - Global indices ended in the red this week amid ongoing U.S. debt woes. Compared to the emerging markets, U.S. indices suffered bigger declines. India's Nifty slumped 2.8%, marking the highest fall. Brazil's Bovespa followed declining 2.6%, while China's benchmark Shanghai Composite Index dipped 1.9% at close last week.

The S&P 500 and the Dow Jones shed the most of 3.2% and 3.8%, respectively. During the past week, most of the stocks across the index declined as the U.S. government's failure to strike a deal on the national debt ceiling left the markets nervous.

For the week ended July 20, according to data compiled by international fund tracking firm EPFR, investors directed $322 million of fresh capital towards locally denominated emerging market bonds in order to snap up some quick gains from currency appreciation. Further, positive foreign exchange effects pushed the total assets under management at emerging market bond funds by $50 million over the past week.

India's Nifty closed the week with only two gainers. Sify Technologies (SIFY - Get Report) emerged the top decliner shedding 13.5% at close last week. Meanwhile, Rediff.com India (REDF) nudged 8.9% lower after the company recorded a higher loss of $2.3 million as compared to $1.2 million in the year-ago quarter. iGATE (IGTE - Get Report) lost 8%.

Meanwhile, pharma stocks Synutra International (SYUT - Get Report) and China Shenghuo Pharmaceutical (KUN) erased 9.8% and 7.4%, respectively.

On the Bovespa, there were only four gainers last week. Braskem (BAK - Get Report) was the top loser erasing 11.8%. Embraer (ERJ - Get Report) followed, shedding 9.1%. Airline stocks Gol Linhas Aereas Inteligentes (GOL - Get Report) and TAM (TAM - Get Report) dived 8.1% and 7.0%, respectively.

Below, the stocks are stacked based on last week's gains, least to highest.
