••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Forward Industries Inc is engaged in the designing, marketing and distribution of protective solutions for hand held electronic devices. The Company's protective solutions include soft-sided carrying cases, bags, clips, hand straps and other accessories.

Forward Industries, Inc. was incorporated in 1961 under the laws of the State of New York.

It does not manufacture any of the products that it designs, markets, and distributes.
