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.

On Monday there were 4199 companies with "abnormal" market making, 2128 companies with positive Friction Factors and 3118 companies with negative Friction Factors. Here is a list of the top companies with the largest percentage loss per share Monday 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. Mind CTI Ltd (NASDAQ:MNDO), Ambow Education Holding Ltd (NYSE:AMBO), Entropic Communications Inc (NASDAQ:ENTR), LDK Solar Co Ltd (NYSE:LDK), Pernix Therapeutics Holdings Inc (AMEX:PTX), Guanwei Recycling Corp (NASDAQ:GPRC).

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 MNDO with a dollar loss Monday of $-0.23000 and a Friction Factor of -1,785 shares. That means that it only took 1,785 more shares of selling than buying to move MNDO 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.
