BUYINS.NET / www.buyins.net, announced today its proprietary Market Maker Friction Factor Report for Wednesday.

This Fair Market Making Requirement is designed to prevent market makers from manipulating stock prices. On Wednesday there were 3558 companies with "abnormal" market making, 1893 companies with positive Friction Factors and 4329 companies with negative Friction Factors. Here is a list of the top companies with the largest percentage loss per share Wednesday and low price friction (bearish). This means that there was more selling than buying in the stocks and their stock prices dropped faster with less Friction. EON COMMUNICATIONS CORP (NASDAQ:EONC), Xerium Technologies Inc (NYSE:XRM), Sterling Construction Co Inc (NASDAQ:STRL), Penson Worldwide Inc (NASDAQ:PNSN), ZHONGPIN INC (NASDAQ:HOGS), LIFEVANTAGE CORP (OTCBB:LFVN).

LFVN $-0.500 -14.53% 3,621,954 47.36% 3,984,872 52.10% -362,918 -7,258
Analysis of the Friction Factor chart above shows that each of the six stocks mentioned above have high net dollar losses (Change) and extremely 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 EONC with a dollar loss Wednesday of $-0.47000 and a Friction Factor of -290 shares. That means that it only took 290 more shares of selling than buying to move EONC lower by one penny. This means the Market Makers are allowing the stock to drop quickly (low friction). The combination of low friction and negative market direction can drive prices lower faster than normal.
