Here is a list of the top companies with the largest percentage gain per share Friday and low price friction (bullish).

Market Maker Friction Factor is shown in the chart below:
Symbol Change Percent Buy Volume Buy %% Sell Volume Sell %% Net Volume Friction
TLAB $0.610 20.68% 11,556,527 54.82% 9,508,779 45.11% 2,047,748 33,570
PPHM $0.370 31.90% 8,156,148 52.99% 6,689,872 43.47% 1,466,276 39,629

FIVE $5.760 18.35% 1,082,429 50.09% 1,065,379 49.30% 17,050 30
EBR $0.490 15.46% 1,953,900 40.77% 1,426,347 29.76% 527,553 10,766
DRWI $0.340 16.11% 401,107 57.31% 287,217 41.04% 113,890 3,350
Analysis of the Friction Factor chart above shows that each of the six stocks mentioned above have high net buy volumes (buy volume, sell volume) and 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 TLAB with a dollar gain Friday of $0.61000 and a Friction Factor of 33,570 shares. That means that it only took 33,570 more shares of buying than selling to move TLAB higher by one penny. The Market Makers are currently allowing the stock to rise quickly (low friction). The combination of low friction and positive market direction can drive prices higher much faster than normal.

In May 2000, the Company sold the majority of its lease portfolio, which was maintained through its wholly owned subsidiary, Paramount.
The evolution of 5B from a technology equipment leasing and trading company to a comprehensive business solutions provider of full service Internet and Information Technology (IT) began in 1996. During the first quarter of that year, in response to the Company's need to provide its customers with more-value added services, the Company created a new wholly owned subsidiary, 5B Group. 5B Group began offering customers full IT service solutions, including hardware, software, system design, systems integration and other value-added support services, including telephony integration in voice over Internet Protocol.
In order to further enhance and expand its system integration services and solutions business, 5B Group acquired Comptech Resources, Inc. (Comptech) in October 1998. Comptech was a systems consulting, software application, Year 2000 compliance and Internet design and development firm. The acquisition of Comptech brought to the Company a specialization in client-server accounting, sales-force automation, web development and e-commerce solutions.

To overcome this shortcoming, in September 2000, 5B Group acquired certain assets of Infinity Consulting Inc. (Infinity), a privately held North Carolina based company. This acquisition brings to 5B Group high-end engineering skills in the areas of database management, application development, implementation and performance tuning. 5B Group can now support LINUX and UNIX operating systems, including IBM-AIX, SUN Solaris, HP-UX and SCO. By using these open systems technology 5B Group can make rapid changes in operating systems to thread (integrate) best-of-breed applications, including Oracle, Informix and DB2. 5B Group has also embraced the Open Source Community, which is a client first concept stating that the client is best served when professionals share their expertise and solutions. 5B Group will strive to make all of its tools available to the community .
