Potbelly’s stock got hammered by the market on Thursday. However, there could be some hidden upside for patient investors.

Investors punished Potbelly ( PBPB 0.37% ) on Thursday by pushing the stock down more than 24% to trade around $11.09 per share. Potbelly's precipitous decline comes on the heels of the sandwich chain's announcement on Wednesday that warned investors of declining same-store sales for its second quarter.

With everyone running for the hills, taking a contrarian view can be challenging. However, as Foolish investors, we know that finding winning long-term businesses is what often reaps the richest rewards. Check out the presentation below to discover three compelling reasons Potbelly is still a winning long-term investment.
