The Container Store Group: High Risks With Low Growth Potential

The company's shares have risen more than 200% over the past year, but it does not look attractive today. Between November and February 2020 - 2021 fiscal years, more than $590 million in shares were sold by insiders. We have doubts about the long-term ability of TCS to maintain profitability. In addition, the company's current ratio is less than 1. There is liquidity risk. We are neutral on the company.
