Feb 28, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- BUYINS.NET / www.buyins.net, announced today its proprietary Market Maker Friction Factor Report for Wednesday. 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 Wednesday there were 3942 companies with "abnormal" market making, 3560 companies with positive Friction Factors and 1802 companies with negative Friction Factors. Here is a list of the top companies with the highest net buy volume on Wednesday 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), Nokia Oyj (NYSE:NOK), Sirius XM Radio Inc (NASDAQ:SIRI), Verizon Communications Inc (NYSE:VZ), INTEL CORPORATION (NASDAQ:INTC), Zynga Inc (NASDAQ:ZNGA).

Market Maker Friction Factor is shown in the chart below:
Symbol Change Percent Buy Volume Buy %% Sell Volume Sell %% Net Volume Friction
DELL $0.050 0.36% 10,596,314 63.99% 5,960,014 35.99% 4,636,300 927,260
NOK $0.200 5.60% 21,149,507 36.67% 18,428,458 31.95% 2,721,049 136,052
SIRI $0.020 0.65% 19,372,208 54.35% 16,273,523 45.65% 3,098,685 1,549,343
VZ $0.230 0.50% 5,446,066 36.89% 3,467,835 23.49% 1,978,231 86,010
INTC $0.380 1.85% 28,362,093 60.56% 18,483,484 39.47% 9,878,609 259,963
ZNGA $0.130 3.87% 45,062,036 52.50% 40,673,416 47.38% 4,388,620 337,586
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 4,636,300 shares and a Friction Factor of 927,260 shares. That means that it takes 927,260 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 Wednesday (lower friction). And with one of the highest Net Buy Volumes, the combination of low friction and high net buy volume is bullish.
