Here is a list of the top companies with the largest percentage loss per share Wednesday and low price friction (bearish).

Goldfield Corp (AMEX:GV), P & F Industries Inc (NASDAQ:PFIN), Eastern Virginia Bankshares Inc (NASDAQ:EVBS), Image Sensing Systems Inc (NASDAQ:ISNS), Metabolix Inc (NASDAQ:MBLX), Red Hat Inc (NYSE:RHT).

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 GV with a dollar loss Wednesday of $-0.74000 and a Friction Factor of -595 shares. That means that it only took 595 more shares of selling than buying to move GV 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.
