Valuing Dillards stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Dillards's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Dillards's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Dillards shares trade at around 7x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 6.5 million Dillards shares held short by investors – that's known as Dillards's "short interest". This figure is 4.1% down from 6.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Dillards shares can be evaluated.
Dillards's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dillards shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dillards shares traded daily (recently around 470980.63354932). Dillards's SIR currently stands at 13.89. In other words for every 100,000 Dillards shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13890 shares are currently held short.
However Dillards's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dillards shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dillards shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dillards's short interest could be expressed as 0.29% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dillards shares in existence, roughly 290 shares are currently held short) or 1.4173% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dillards shares, roughly 1417 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Dillards.

We're not expecting Dillards to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Dillards's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 8 June 1992. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Dillards shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dillards shares which in turn could have impacted Dillards's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Dillards's shares have ranged in value from as little as $22.18 up to $80.47. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Dillards's is 0.8676. This would suggest that Dillards's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
