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, renewable-fuels firms were shining like the sun at the Equator in August. Get your SPF 45 and shades, Fool; they're still burning bright. Six of the top 10 industries from the past 30 days are involved in green energy.

Impressive, no? I'll say. If not for gaming firms such as International Game Technology (NYSE: IGT  ) and Giant Interactive (NYSE: GA  ) , this week's top six would have been dominated by ethanol and solar specialists.

According to you, our Foolish readers, the only stock in these industries to own now -- i.e., one with four or five of the maximum five stars in CAPS -- is:
