Feb 13, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
BUYINS.NET / www.buyins.net, announced today its proprietary Market Maker Friction Factor Report for Tuesday. 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 Tuesday there were 3957 companies with "abnormal" market making, 3100 companies with positive Friction Factors and 2248 companies with negative Friction Factors. Here is a list of the top companies with the largest percentage loss per share Tuesday 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. Cimatron Ltd (NASDAQ:CIMT), KVH Industries Inc (NASDAQ:KVHI), Bankrate Inc (NYSE:RATE), Celsion Corp (NASDAQ:CLSN), Apricus Biosciences Inc (NASDAQ:APRI), Zynga Inc (NASDAQ:ZNGA).

Symbol Change Percent Buy Volume Buy %% Sell Volume Sell %% Net Volume Friction
CIMT $-1.290 -11.81% 786,559 43.72% 999,488 55.56% -212,929 -1,651
KVHI $-2.100 -14.09% 195,237 41.84% 244,376 52.37% -49,139 -234

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 CIMT with a dollar loss Tuesday of $-1.29000 and a Friction Factor of -1,651 shares. That means that it only took 1,651 more shares of selling than buying to move CIMT 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.
