Market-trouncing returns could be written in these four stars.

Based on the aggregated intelligence of 120,000 investors participating in Motley Fool CAPS, the Fool's free investing community, agricultural equipment manufacturer CNH Global (NYSE:CNH) has earned a respected four-star ranking. While five-star stocks have been the best performers, our data has shown that four-star stocks still outshine the market by a significant margin and shouldn't be taken lightly; conversely, low-rated stocks have woefully lagged the market average.

With that in mind, let's take a closer look at CNH's business, and see what CAPS investors are saying about the stock right now.

Over on CAPS, some 93% of the 273 members who have rated CNH believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include CAPS All-Star bklynmp3j and pjani06.

In October, bklynmp3j wrote that CNH's "global scope and scale in the agricultural and construction equipment industries make it well positioned for an early recovery. Demand will only increase."

In a pitch from a few days earlier, pjani06 agrees, highlighting the stock's attractive valuation and tasty yield (which has remained relatively unchanged):

This is as near a bottom for this stock you can get. Excellent growing company within a global sector of the world economy that has still been receiving lending money this past year from the world's banks. This company has poised itself well to ride the recent uptrends and shares its fortunes with shareholders offering a 3% yield now representing a less than 20% payout!
