Just yesterday, one of those Fools, bes0m3b0dy, succinctly summed up the bull case for community:

Strong balance sheet. ... Leader in the business of lift trucks, while not glamorous, but well poised to expand in the improving economic conditions in the Americas, where it gets 2/3 of its revenue. At a P/E ratio of 9 and well-positioned to grow domestically and globally, this recent spinoff is a quality company that is cheap.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Hyster-Yale may not be your top choice.
