Cold Stocks You're Selling Now

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

Last time, caching vendors such as NaviSite had crashed the market's pity party. Well, Fool, they're still here -- down 14% as a group over the past month.

And they have plenty of company. All that glitters has gone dull. Jewelry maker Zale (NYSE: ZLC  ) and its peers are off an average of 11.2% since late November.

Finally, more bad news for "girl power" go-getters: Stocks whose tickers make for popular or classic female names, such as Ruth's Chris Steak House (Nasdaq: RUTH  ) , are down 9.6% as a group over the last 30 days.
