Just last month, one of those Fools, MHenage, tapped the stock as a solid bargain opportunity:

Good cash flow, good earnings growth. ... Joy and [Caterpillar] can compete and not kill each other because there is enough business to go around. ... Price target of $150 if the company reaches earnings for 2012 and the P/E expands to meet projected earnings growth of about 20%.  

If you want to retire rich, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite its four-star rating, Joy Global may not be your top choice.
