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, China was champion. No longer. Dry bulk shippers have bypassed the Sino superstar with a stunning 48.9% average return over the past 30 days. Wowza.

Of course, you won't have to go far before you get back to the birthplace of Confucius, Sun Tzu, and low-cost manufacturing. Stocks with a Chinese connection rank second and are up an average of 32.4% since mid-September.

And in third? The Greeks. Stocks from these sun-drenched isles in the Aegean and Ionian seas have advanced 32.2% as a group over the last month.
