There are currently 155,871 Kimball Electronics shares held short by investors – that's known as Kimball Electronics's "short interest". This figure is 2.5% up from 152,110 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Kimball Electronics shares can be evaluated.
Kimball Electronics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kimball Electronics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kimball Electronics shares traded daily (recently around 54500.34965035). Kimball Electronics's SIR currently stands at 2.86. In other words for every 100,000 Kimball Electronics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2860 shares are currently held short.
However Kimball Electronics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kimball Electronics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kimball Electronics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kimball Electronics's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kimball Electronics shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0065% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kimball Electronics shares, roughly 7 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 Kimball Electronics.

We're not expecting Kimball Electronics to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Kimball Electronics's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 5 September 2013. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kimball Electronics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kimball Electronics shares which in turn could have impacted Kimball Electronics's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Kimball Electronics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.78 up to $18.49. 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 Kimball Electronics's is 1.2344. This would suggest that Kimball Electronics'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).
