Financial Analysis

DILLARDS INC's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2017 has decreased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have dropped, underperforming the average competitor within its industry. DILLARDS INC has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.17 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity decreased from the same period a year ago, despite already having very weak liquidity to begin with. This would indicate deteriorating cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 9.38% from the same quarter last year. The key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the near future.
