By Malvika Gurung -- The past week observed high volatility, with domestic equities recording heavy sell-offs on Friday alone after the US Fed announced a 75 bps interest rate hike on Wednesday and iterated an ultra-hawkish monetary tightening policy going ahead to tame decades-high inflation.

Indian equity benchmark indices ended deep in red on Friday, Nifty50 down 1.72% and Sensex crashing 1,020.8 points or 1.73%.

The country’s top 10 most valued companies lost their combined valuation by Rs 1,34,139.14 crore in the week, with the market capitalizations of 7 giants eroding away.

The wealth of oil-to-telecom conglomerate Reliance Industries (NS: RELI ) witnessed the biggest drop, followed by the largest private sector lender HDFC Bank (NS: HDBK ) and the Adani (NS: APSE ) Group power transmission giant Adani Transmission (NS: ADAI ).

The FMCG behemoth Hindustan Unilever (NS: HLL ), Bajaj Finance (NS: BJFN ) and ITC (NS: ITC ) were the only three companies in the top 10 list that gained valuations last week. 

Here’s how the m-caps of giants of the elite Big Boys club performed in the past week.

  • RIL’s m-cap plunged by Rs 40,558.3 crore.
  • TCS' (NS: TCS ) valuation slipped by Rs 9,458.65 crore.

    So what's the big deal, it's cyclic. When the market goes down this happens and when the market is up opposite will happen. It's commonsense, right?
