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, software stocks were boiling over like pasta in a pot. No longer. With apologies to its neighbor, Japan, China is the new land of the rising sun. Stocks from this red-hot region are up an average of 35.8% over the past 30 days.

Our other hotties are far more mundane, but familiar. Industrial equipment wholesalers drop from second to third with a 31.2% average return. Nickel miners, meanwhile, are up 34.1% since mid-September.
