Monday was another brutal day on Wall Street. After the worst February stock returns in 76 years, the first day of trading in March gave no indication of relief. The Dow dropped below the 6,800 level for the first time since 1997, leaving investors wondering how low the markets really can go.
The day started off badly when the stability of the financial system was again called into question as AIG (AIG - Get Report) reported a $61.7 billion quarterly net loss. The earnings report prompted a third government bailout for AIG, this time to the tune of $30 billion.
Not surprisingly, financials took a hit, with JPMorgan (JPM - Get Report), Wells Fargo (WFC - Get Report) and PNC Financial (PNC - Get Report) all down for the day. Big industrials such as General Electric (GE - Get Report), Boeing (BA - Get Report) and Caterpillar (CAT) also dropped after the Institute of Supply Management reported weak factory sector data.With this in mind, we thought we'd take a look at some of the stocks people have been searching for on TheStreet.com (including General Mills (GIS - Get Report)) and see what Jim Cramer's had to say about them lately.
