On Friday there were 4158 companies with "abnormal" market making, 2002 companies with positive Friction Factors and 3683 companies with negative Friction Factors. Here is a list of the top companies with the highest net buy volume on Friday and lowest price Friction (bullish). This means that there was more buying than selling in the stocks and their stock prices rose faster with less Friction. APPLIED MATERIALS, INC. (NASDAQ:AMAT), Boston Scientific Corp (NYSE:BSX), Penn Virginia Resource Partners LP (NYSE:PVR), Tellabs Inc (NASDAQ:TLAB), Hovnanian Enterprises Inc (NYSE:HOV), Ford Motor Co (NYSE:F).

Analysis of the Friction Factor chart above shows that each of the six stocks mentioned above have high net dollar gains (Change) and very 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 AMAT with a Net Buy Volume of 10,654,895 shares and a Friction Factor of 887,908 shares. That means that it takes 887,908 more shares of buying than selling to move AMAT higher by one penny. This means the Market Makers are allowing the stock to move up higher as of Friday (lower friction). And with one of the highest Net Buy Volumes, the combination of low friction and high net buy volume is bullish.
