Is The Container Store All It's Cracked Up to Be?

Last year was chockablock full of IPOs whose stocks boomed after trading on the public markets. One of the companies that benefited from this trend was The Container Store  (NYSE: TCS  ) , which offers a plethora of products to help Americans organize their over-crowded homes.  

The company went public at $18 per share and currently trades at $44 per share, a 145% increase in just a matter of months. But beyond a successful debut on the markets, lots of people are talking about the company's commitment to conscious capitalism.

One of the key tenets of conscious capitalism is letting your employees know that their work is integral to the success of the company, and backing that sentiment up in tangible ways. But as Motley Fool contributor Brian Stoffel points out in the following video, some are wondering if The Container Store is really living up to its mission. 

Proof: Investing with conscious capitalists works
They said it couldn't be done. Succeed by investing with conscious capitalism in mind? But David Gardner has proved them wrong time, and time, and time again. In fact, just recently one of his favorite stocks became a 100-bagger. And he's ready to do it again.

    This typifies the problem with Motley Fool. They tell you to buy a stock, then they tell you to short it. No firm definitely useful opinions you can really use to invest.

    I'm not sure what side you think I'm coming down on. As I said in the video, TCS does quite well compared to competitors. If there are others who don't believe in the investment who write for the Fool, I refer you back to one of our tenets (above):

    How much more simple a contradiction of advice can there be -- tell people to buy the stock, then tell people to short it. Calling that a difference of opinion does not explain or excuse the illogical position taken on this website.
