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, subprime-loan insurers -- chief bagholders in this panicky market -- were like a skunk at a garden party. Today, MGIC Investment (NASDAQ:MTG) and its peers smell as rotten as ever, down 57.7% since mid-November.

The subprime lenders -- you know, the dog-food eaters that turned subprime-loan insurers into bagholders in the first place -- are a distant second in today's contest of chumps, but still down 40.6% on average over the past 30 days.

And third place once again hosted title insurers like Fidelity National Financial (NYSE:FNF). They're off an average of 32.6% over the last month.
