Dec 20, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
BUYINS.NET / www.buyins.net, announced today its proprietary Market Maker Friction Factor Report for Wednesday. Since October 2008 market makers are now required to be on the bid as much as they are on the offer and for like amounts of stock. This Fair Market Making Requirement is designed to prevent market makers from manipulating stock prices. On Wednesday there were 4042 companies with "abnormal" market making, 2681 companies with positive Friction Factors and 2928 companies with negative Friction Factors. Here is a list of the top companies with the largest percentage gain per share Wednesday and low price friction (bullish). This means that there was more buying than selling in the stocks and their stock prices rose faster with less Friction. BOS Better On-Line Solutions Ltd (NASDAQ:BOSC), Progenics Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:PGNX), Edap - Tms SA (NASDAQ:EDAP), Dynatronics Corp (NASDAQ:DYNT), Neptun SA (NASDAQ:NEPT), Alterra Capital Holdings Ltd (NASDAQ:ALTE).

Market Maker Friction Factor is shown in the chart below:
Symbol Change Percent Buy Volume Buy %% Sell Volume Sell %% Net Volume Friction
BOSC $3.430 72.67% 270,116 57.82% 187,001 40.03% 83,115 242
PGNX $0.460 19.09% 464,039 59.39% 316,437 40.50% 147,602 3,209

NEPT $0.350 20.47% 1,280,440 63.78% 726,297 36.18% 554,143 15,833
ALTE $5.200 22.46% 6,552,269 54.58% 5,127,299 42.71% 1,424,970 2,740
Analysis of the Friction Factor chart above shows that each of the six stocks mentioned above have high net buy volumes (buy volume, sell volume) and low price friction in their stocks. The Friction Factor displays how many more shares of buying than selling are required to move a stock higher by one cent or how many more shares of selling than buying moves a stock lower by 1 cent.
For example, the chart above shows BOSC with a dollar gain Wednesday of $3.43000 and a Friction Factor of 242 shares. That means that it only took 242 more shares of buying than selling to move BOSC higher by one penny. The Market Makers are currently allowing the stock to rise quickly (low friction). The combination of low friction and positive market direction can drive prices higher much faster than normal.
