This recent IPO seems to have stumbled out of the gate, but was it really that bad?

Besides being a monster year for the S&P 500, 2013 was a great year for companies to go public. The Container Store (TCS 0.64%) was one of the most interesting of those companies to go public, with its focus on conscious capitalism.

Coming out of the gate, the company's stock more than doubled in just a few short months. However, following last week's earnings release, the stock dipped more than 15%. Were things really that bad for The Container Store?

In the following video, Motley Fool contributor Brian Stoffel talks about what the important takeaways from the report are, and exactly why he purchased shares immediately following the company's drop.
