Hot Stocks You're Buying Now

Welcome back to another Foolish review of the hottest stocks as ranked by Motley Fool CAPS. We're looking at the three best-performing industries over the past 30 days and your favorite long and short candidates in each.

Last time, subprime lenders had shed the slime and stepped into the sun. Back to the shade, fellas. Time to make room for the nickel miners. They're up 29.2% on average over the past 30 days.

But it's our second-place stocks that shine brightest. That's where diamond miners place, and they're up 23.4% since mid-August. Bringing up the rear are the fertilizer producers, whose 22.4% average return smells especially sweet.

According to you, our Foolish readers, the best stocks in these industries to own now -- i.e., those with four or five of the maximum five stars in CAPS -- are:
