GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on The Container Store Group Inc

Baron Funds Comments on The Container Store Group Inc. - May 05, 2014

With 64 stores throughout the U.S., The Container Store Group, Inc. (TCS) is a leading specialty retailer of storage and organization products, renowned for its excellent customer service and "conscious capitalism" culture. The company went public in November and the stock more than doubled through the end of the year. Its shares pulled back during the quarter allowing Baron Growth Fund to invest at what we believe to be attractive prices. The Container Store checks all the boxes we look for in a business, including significant growth opportunity, sustainable competitive advantages and management talent. We view the growth prospects for The Container Store as open-ended, with square footage growth that can sustain a double digit pace for at least a decade on its way to 300 stores. The company dominates its niche by selling exclusive merchandise and customized solutions that save customers time and space and generates loyalty and repeat business in the process. Its management team, including dynamic founder and Chairman Kip Tindell, is highly seasoned and focused on maintaining a positive corporate culture rooted in customer service and solution-based selling.
