By David Diaz

Below are the three companies in the Department Stores industry with the highest return on equity. The ROE is a general indication of the company's efficiency; investors usually look for companies with ROEs that are high and are growing.

Nordstrom ranks highest with a ROE of 36.7%. Macy's is next with a ROE of 28.3%. Dillard's ranks third highest with a ROE of 17.0%.

Kohl's follows with a ROE of 13.2%, and JC Penney rounds out the top five with a ROE of -25.2%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Nordstrom on April 8th, 2016 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $51.04.
