International stocks trading in New York closed lower on Wednesday.

The S&P/BNY Mellon index of American depositary receipts fell 1.3% to 136.85. The European index decreased 0.3% to 132.27, the Asian index fell 1.6% to 157.39, the Latin American index dropped 2.8% to 184.05 and the emerging markets index decreased 2.1% to 268.05.

Tencent Holdings Ltd. and British Land Co. were among the companies with ADRs that traded actively.

ADRs of Tencent Holdings increased 5.2% after it said it is shedding most of its stake in food-delivery company Meituan as the Chinese social-media and videogame giant looks to cash out from its investments in China's internet sector. It said it would distribute more than 958 million shares of Meituan, valued at roughly $20 billion, as a special dividend to Tencent shareholders. Tencent also posted a revenue decline for a second consecutive quarter.

ADRs of British Land fell 1.2% after the company swung to a pretax loss in the first half of fiscal 2023 as portfolio valuations fell on rising interest rates. Still, revenue rose and the company increased its dividend.
