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.

  • Confectioners, which includes firms that satisfy our need for a sugar fix. Stocks of these cavity creators are up 13.3% over the last 30 days.
  • Solar power, which includes firms that look to the sky to light our world. Stocks of these sun worshippers are up 11.8% over the last 30 days.
