Total investor wealth across all listed companies in the country has vaulted by a whopping Rs 10.14 lakh crore so far in 2012, and a strong market rally has pushed up bluechips by nearly 20%.

With the gain of over Rs 10 lakh crore in investor wealth, measured in terms of combined market value of all listed stocks in the country, the market has recouped more than half of the losses suffered last year.

The investor wealth had fallen by Rs 19.48 lakh crore in entire calendar year 2011, shows the market data.

From Rs 53.48 lakh crore at the end of December 2011, the total investor wealth that includes holdings of promoters, institutions and retail investors, has shot up to Rs 63.63 lakh crore as on September 14.

Among the sectors, the best-performing ones so far this year have been those that were mostly beaten down last year. Bank shares have gained about 33%, followed by 25% in capital goods stocks, 22% in autos, 19% in real estate sector and about 16% for oil and gas stocks.

The promoters account for close to 60% of investor wealth gain so far in 2012, while retail investors share about 10% of the pie.

Within the stocks categories, gains were a tad bigger for mid-cap as against the blue-chips. While the Sensex is up 9.47%, the mid-cap index is up 22%. The small-cap index, however, has gained around 19.33% � a level similar to bluechips.

With rupee depreciating around 2.25% against the US dollar this year, the gains for FIIs have been lower than domestic investors in Indian stocks.

Among the Sensex constituents that have held on to their position in the 30-share index, cigarettes-to-hotels major ITC leads the pack in terms of investor wealth addition with Rs 53,512 crore.

ITC is followed closely state-run Coal India whose market value has gone up by Rs 51,478 crore. TCS (Rs 49,068 crore), Reliance Industries (Rs 45,205 crore) and HDFC Bank (Rs 44,515 crore) are also among other major wealth creators.

On the other hand, telecom major Bharti Airtel has seen its market value decline by Rs 33,342 crore, followed by state-run BHEL (Rs 8,420 crore), IT giant Infosys (Rs 7,586 crore) and Jindal Steel (Rs 7,543 crore).
