Guru Investment Theses on The Container Store Group Inc

Royce Funds Comments on The Container Store - Dec 03, 2015

So one of our favorites happens to be the Container Store (NYSE:TCS), which is a growth retailer. It has had a bit of a rocky start since it came public about a year and a half ago but it reminds me a lot of those long term runway companies.



The Container Store has 72 stores and they believe they can hit the 500 store mark just in the US alone, so that is 18 years of runway if they are growing their store count at about 12% a year. In addition, they have some other big growth strategies that are underway right now and will be completely rolled out throughout their chain by the end of the year.

Royce Funds Comments on The Container Store Group - Oct 12, 2015

Chip: Along with the Health Care areas we already discussed, we've also been pretty active in the Consumer Discretionary sector. In addition to Columbia Sportswear (COLM), we're very confident in the prospects for The Container Store Group (TCS).



We think the company should continue to benefit from its store expansion efforts in an economy with improved employment numbers, increasingly confident consumers, low energy prices, and higher levels of new household formation.
