NEW YORK - Dillard's Inc. (NYSE: NYSE:DDS) shares have surged by 16% over the past week, propelled by the company's impressive return on equity (ROE) of 43%, which significantly outstrips the industry average of 17%. The American department store chain has demonstrated considerable financial strength with a net profit of $777 million and shareholders' equity of $1.8 billion.

The retailer's financial performance shines with a five-year net income growth rate of 45%, eclipsing the industry's average growth rate of 14%. This robust growth trajectory is further underscored by Dillard's consistent dividend payouts, which reflect a tradition of sharing profits with its investors for over a decade. The company has maintained a conservative three-year median payout ratio at just 1.6%, indicating a strategic focus on reinvesting earnings to fuel business expansion.
