I do not like the container store stock, TCS. I just looked up its data and see that the Price Earnings for TCS is actually 3?

What data source are you using? I checked Morningstar, Yahoo, and Google Finance-- they say 34, 34, and 24 (my guess is Google is lagging for whatever reason).

I don't think TCS has an interesting business.

I have been to a few of them and I don't really understand why anyone would want to invest in one. No doubt there is some compelling story that I haven't been paying attention to, but to me it looks like a store that sells boxes. Normally when I want boxes I go to Home Depot or Target. I'm sure TCS has a better selection of boxes, but I'm really not all that picky with my boxes.
