TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 124,384 Forward Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Forward Industries's "short interest". This figure is 16.3% down from 148,641 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Forward Industries shares can be evaluated.
Forward Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Forward Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Forward Industries shares traded daily (recently around 105410.16949153). Forward Industries's SIR currently stands at 1.18. In other words for every 100,000 Forward Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1180 shares are currently held short.
However Forward Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Forward Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Forward Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Forward Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Forward Industries shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0165% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Forward Industries shares, roughly 17 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Forward Industries.

We're not expecting Forward Industries to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Forward Industries's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 24 December 1997. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Forward Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Forward Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Forward Industries's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Forward Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.9024 up to $2.11. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Forward Industries's is 1.2231. This would suggest that Forward Industries's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
