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, the time before, and the time before that, caching vendors were like Jessica Simpson at a meeting of the Dallas Cowboys fan club. Today, they're still on the outs -- down 24.6% over the past 30 days -- but not as much as subprime insurers, which have suffered a 29% haircut since mid-December.

And in third? Stocks whose tickers coincide with common girl names. Effeminate retailers such as Ann Taylor (NYSE: ANN), Liz Claiborne (NYSE: LIZ), and their pink-stained peers are off 23.3% as a group over the last month.

According to you, our Foolish readers, the worst stocks in these industries to own now -- i.e., those rated one or two out of a maximum five stars in CAPS -- are:
