(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) BUYINS.NET / www.buyins.net, announced today its proprietary Market Maker Friction Factor Report for Thursday. 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 Thursday there were 3675 companies with "abnormal" market making, 3518 companies with positive Friction Factors and 2120 companies with negative Friction Factors. Here is a list of the top companies with the largest percentage loss per share Thursday 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. Superconductor Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:SCON), Velti PLC (NASDAQ:VELT), VirnetX Holding Corp (AMEX:VHC), Verso Paper Corp (NYSE:VRS), MiMedx Group Inc (OTC:MDXG), (NYSE:DGAZ).

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 SCON with a dollar loss Thursday of $-0.66000 and a Friction Factor of -380 shares. That means that it only took 380 more shares of selling than buying to move SCON 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.
