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, home-furnishings retailers such as Bed Bath & Beyond (Nasdaq: BBBY  ) were kings of the CAPS kingdom. They've since been overthrown. Gaming stock International Game Technology (NYSE: IGT  ) and its peers are the new lords of the land, up an average of 39.5% over the past 30 days.

Second and third place go to two industries chock-full of green stocks: renewable fuel and renewable energy. It's a tie here, with each group advancing 26.3% since mid-November.
