Highest Enterprise Value to Sales Ratio in the Department Stores Industry Detected in Shares of Nordstrom (JWN, M, KSS, JCP, DDS)

By Shiri Gupta

Below are the three companies in the Department Stores industry with the highest Enterprise Value (EV) to Sales ratios. EV/Sales gives investors an idea of how much it costs to buy the company's sales and the lower the ratio, the more undervalued the company is believed to be.

Nordstrom ranks highest with a EV/Sales of 0.67. Following is Macy's with a EV/Sales of 0.66. Kohl's ranks third highest with a EV/Sales of 0.64.

JC Penney follows with a EV/Sales of 0.58, and Dillard's rounds out the top five with a EV/Sales of 0.48.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Dillard's on April 5th, 2016 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $80.58. Since that call, shares of Dillard's have fallen 23.1%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
