Feb 28, 2013 (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 3942 companies with "abnormal" market making, 3560 companies with positive Friction Factors and 1802 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. VASCULAR SOLUTIONS, INC. (NASDAQ:VASC), Old Second Bancorp Inc (NASDAQ:OSBC), Uni-Pixel Inc (NASDAQ:UNXL), Meru Networks Inc (NASDAQ:MERU), Ku6 Media Co Ltd (NASDAQ:KUTV), Zogenix Inc (NASDAQ:ZGNX).

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 VASC with a dollar gain Wednesday of $3.45000 and a Friction Factor of 101 shares. That means that it only took 101 more shares of buying than selling to move VASC 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.
