Feb 01, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
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 4002 companies with "abnormal" market making, 2803 companies with positive Friction Factors and 2471 companies with negative Friction Factors. Here is a list of the top companies with the largest percentage gain per share Thursday and low price friction (bullish). This means that there was more buying than selling in the stocks and their stock prices rose faster with less Friction. Central European Distribution Corp (NASDAQ:CEDC), Pitney Bowes Inc (NYSE:PBI), EDUCATION MANAGEMENT CORP (NASDAQ:EDMC), JDS UNIPHASE CORPORATION (NASDAQ:JDSU), WMS INDUSTRIES INCORPORATED (NYSE:WMS), Harte-Hanks Inc (NYSE:HHS).

Market Maker Friction Factor is shown in the chart below:
Symbol Change Percent Buy Volume Buy %% Sell Volume Sell %% Net Volume Friction
CEDC $0.380 21.35% 2,165,844 64.48% 1,190,879 35.45% 974,965 25,657
PBI $2.050 17.15% 7,179,289 39.09% 5,968,488 32.50% 1,210,801 5,906

HHS $1.790 27.97% 356,050 40.26% 284,758 32.20% 71,292 398
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 CEDC with a dollar gain Thursday of $0.38000 and a Friction Factor of 25,657 shares. That means that it only took 25,657 more shares of buying than selling to move CEDC 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.
