In the few weeks since we announced July's top stocks, the market has taken a turn for the worse and sent July's all-star stocks down with the rest of the general market.

The foreign stocks on last month's list -- Canadian Natural Resources, Chicago Bridge & Iron, Norsk Hydro (NYSE:NHY), and Net Servicos de Comunicacao -- were hit particularly hard, with many non-U.S. markets having taken a worse beating than our own. After such a broad sell-off, perhaps it's time to see whether these stocks are now on sale.

This month's list, as voted on by more than 60,000 investors participating in Motley Fool CAPS, contains some old faces, including this month's top stock, Motley Fool Hidden Gems pick Mueller Water (NYSE:MWA). But it also introduces us to some new and exciting stock ideas, such as industrial packing company Greif (NYSE:GEF) and tiny Israeli tech concern Bluephoenix Solutions (NASDAQ:BPHX).

Here's the rest of this month's list.

Packaging pays dividends
Ohio-based Greif can trace its roots back 130 years, when the company made casks and kegs to transport apples, potatoes, wine, and the like across the country. Today's company still generates three-quarters of its business in industrial packaging such as steel drums and bulk containers, but it also has its hand in commercial packaging material, such as cardboard and corrugated containers.

Sure, the packaging business may sound a bit boring, yet the cash this company generates from it is anything but dull. In the past 12 months, Greif produced $132 million in free cash flow, revenues are up 30% year over year, and operating margins have expanded to 8.7%. Greif has also rewarded its investors in the past few months, by splitting 2-to-1 in April and boosting its dividend by 55%.

Bullish sentiment for Greif is strong over on Motley Fool CAPS. Of the 198 CAPS players who have rated Greif, 197 of them think the stock will outperform the S&P going forward. Player dexion10 cites Greif's "dominant scale" in the packaging industry, as well as the company's international exposure, as reasons why Greif will outperform.
