Dillard's Swings To 3Q Profit On One-Time Gain, Beats Street (WSJ): Dillard's Inc. swung to a fiscal third-quarter profit on a tax gain, but results excluding that were much better than analysts feared as the retailer continued its turnaround effort.

Saks Beats Street, Shares Up (Reuters): Upscale U.S. department store operator Saks Inc. reported a quarterly profit that beat Wall Street expectations for a loss, stoking investor hopes for a luxury market recovery and sending shares up 4.4 percent.

Burberry First-Half Profit Fell 24% But Dividend Lifted (MarketWatch): Burberry reported a 24% fall in first-half profit, with the results buffered by cost cuts and strong demand for its leather goods, but the U.K. luxury-goods group lifted its dividend 4% and expressed optimism for the future.
