BUYINS.NET / www.buyins.net, announced today its proprietary Market Maker Friction Factor Report for Monday. 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 Monday there were 3999 companies with "abnormal" market making, 2718 companies with positive Friction Factors and 2830 companies with negative Friction Factors. Here is a list of the top companies with the largest percentage gain per share Monday 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. Hampton Roads Bankshares Inc (NASDAQ:HMPR), Entremed Inc (NASDAQ:ENMD), RF Industries Ltd (NASDAQ:RFIL), China Finance Online Co Ltd (NASDAQ:JRJC), Peregrine Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:PPHM), Paragon Shipping Inc (NYSE:PRGN).

PRGN $0.500 16.67% 132,444 39.95% 125,548 37.87% 6,896 138
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 HMPR with a dollar gain Monday of $0.20000 and a Friction Factor of 1,936 shares. That means that it only took 1,936 more shares of buying than selling to move HMPR 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.
