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 the highest net buy volume on Tuesday and lowest price Friction (bullish). This means that there was more buying than selling in the stocks and their stock prices rose faster with less Friction. Dell Inc (NASDAQ:DELL), EMC Corp (NYSE:EMC), Verizon Communications Inc (NYSE:VZ), INTEL CORPORATION (NASDAQ:INTC), West Fraser Timber Co Ltd (NYSE:WFT), Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria S.A. (NYSE:BBVA). To access Friction Factor, Naked Short Data and SqueezeTrigger Prices on all stocks please visit http://www.buyins.net .
Market Maker Friction Factor is shown in the chart below:
Symbol Change Percent Buy Volume Buy %% Sell Volume Sell %% Net Volume Friction
DELL $0.030 0.22% 13,698,634 58.42% 9,661,727 41.21% 4,036,907 1,345,636
EMC $0.100 0.43% 6,034,940 33.00% 3,945,680 21.57% 2,089,260 208,926
VZ $0.270 0.59% 6,294,931 35.84% 3,968,458 22.59% 2,326,473 86,166
INTC $0.360 1.78% 33,987,293 51.08% 32,428,660 48.74% 1,558,633 43,295
WFT $0.040 0.34% 5,399,115 38.97% 2,737,920 19.76% 2,661,195 665,299
BBVA $0.190 2.04% 3,596,920 74.39% 505,169 10.45% 3,091,751 162,724
Analysis of the Friction Factor chart above shows that each of the six stocks mentioned above have high net dollar gains (Change) and very 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 DELL with a Net Buy Volume of 4,036,907 shares and a Friction Factor of 1,345,636 shares. That means that it takes 1,345,636 more shares of buying than selling to move DELL higher by one penny. This means the Market Makers are allowing the stock to move up higher as of Tuesday (lower friction). And with one of the highest Net Buy Volumes, the combination of low friction and high net buy volume is bullish.
