Tale of the Tape

Dillard's Inc. (DDS - Analyst Report) saw a big move last session, as the company’s shares fell over 6% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend of DDS, as the stock is now trading below the volatile price range of $85.2 to $90.7 in the past one-month time frame.

This slump shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to investors, as the fashion apparel, cosmetics, and home furnishing Retail Company has seen 1 negative revision in the past few weeks and its current year earnings consensus has moved lower over the last 30 days. This suggests there may be more trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent slump will continue, as the earnings picture definitely suggests that this might be the case.

DDS currently has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

A better-ranked stock in the Retail-Rgn Dept industry includes Macy's, Inc. (M - Analyst Report) which holds a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).

Investors interested in the Retail sector may consider better-ranked stocks like Advance Auto Parts Inc. (AAP - Analyst Report) and Christopher & Banks Corporation (CBK - Snapshot Report). Both carry a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
