Just yesterday, one of those Fools, DrGoldin, tapped Joy Global as a particularly solid bargain opportunity:

This is a long-term buy, because there's going to be some global contraction in the near term, but it's all priced in. And this is a company with growing earnings even in the face of uncertainty. Eventually its price is going to have to reflect its earnings.

If you want market-thumping returns, 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 a strong four-star rating, Joy Global may not be your top choice.
