Feb 27, 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 4094 companies with "abnormal" market making, 2796 companies with positive Friction Factors and 2447 companies with negative Friction Factors. Here is a list of the top companies with Abnormal Price Friction (bearish bias) in their stock prices. This means that there was more buying than selling in the stocks and their stock prices dropped. Telefonica SA (NYSE:TEF), Banco Santander SA (NYSE:SAN), Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd (NYSE:TSM), Corning Inc (NYSE:GLW), Alcoa Inc (NYSE:AA), Activision Blizzard Inc (NASDAQ:ATVI).

Market Maker Friction Factor is shown in the chart below:
Symbol Change Percent Buy Volume Buy %% Sell Volume Sell %% Net Volume Friction
TEF $-0.050 -0.40% 2,768,579 60.74% 713,178 15.65% 2,055,401 Abnormal

ATVI $-0.170 -1.19% 6,696,482 56.39% 4,906,420 41.32% 1,790,062 Abnormal
Analysis of the Friction Factor chart above shows that each of the six stocks mentioned above had more buying than selling on Tuesday and their stock prices dropped. 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 TEF with 2,055,401 greater shares of buying than selling (NetVol) and the stock price was down $-0.05000. This means the Market Makers were trading the stock in a way inconsistent with normal supply and demand (Economics 101); more buying than selling should cause prices to rise.
