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, renewable energy technology stocks were more out of place than Bill Maher at the Vatican. Today, you'll find them in Tuscany, and out of the picture.

Who's our winner, then? Surprise! It's the subprime loan insurers. These not-so-lovable losers are off 55.7% since early October.

Following closely are subprime lenders, down 36.6% over the past 30 days. This industry includes loan guppies such as CompuCredit (NASDAQ:CCRT). But that might thrill Tom Gardner, who counts CompuCredit as one of his Stock Advisor recommendations.

Third place, meanwhile, hosts title insurers like LandAmerica (NYSE:LFG). This group is off an average of 35.9% over the last month. Shocking.
