For the week ended 24 December, the stock market indices ended flat. However, the heavyweights happened to do quite well. If you look at the overall heavyweight performance at a macro level, it is quite impressive because a total of 6 out of the top 10 most valued Indian companies added Rs.60,199 crore in market cap during the week.

The week largely belonged to the information technology sector with Infosys and TCS emerging the biggest winners. However, there were other gainers too in the list. Apart from the two IT giants; Reliance Industries, Hindustan Unilever, Kotak Bank and Bharti Airtel were the other gainers in the top-10. There appears to be a trend towards the defensives.

A majority of the financials in the top heavyweight list ended weak with HDFC Bank, HDFC, ICICI Bank and Bajaj Finance losing value during the week. In the overall sweepstakes, RIL and TCS have a market cap of above Rs.10 trillion while Infy, HDFC Bank has a market cap of above Rs.7.50 trillion while HUVR and Infosys are valued at above Rs.5 trillion in market cap.
