IT stocks were major losers over the week. Consequently all IT funds have performed poorly, churning out negative returns. IT majors like Infosys, Satyam and NIIT were top losers on both the indices. Infosys fell 19%, Satyam - 15% and NIIT - 14%. This slump was largely due to heavy selling by the foreign institutional investors (FIIs).

The mood in pharma stocks was no exception and mirrored the mood in IT stocks. As a result NAVs (net asset values) of pharma funds have also witnessed negative growth. Major losers in the pharma sector were Ranbaxy, Dr. Reddys, Novartis, and Glaxo.

There was selective buying in FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) stocks. Hindustan Lever and Nestle were top FMCG gainers, whereas Colgate and ITC witnessed a decline. After a couple of weeks in the limelight, FMCG stocks seem to have lost their sheen and have returned to their old ways.
