During the week of Nov. 5, TheStreet.com readers searched for these 10 stocks more than any others. Research associate Patrick Schultz makes the buy, sell or hold call on them below, in the order of their popularity.

1.

Citigroup

(C) - Get Report

: The drama continues at Citigroup with Chuck Prince resigning (about time!), Bob Rubin stepping in as Chairman and the company saying it faces writedowns of another $8 billion to $11 billion (what's a few billion dollars between friends?). The stock now yields over 6% and presents good risk/reward here, and I am switching my stance on it from hold. I think the damage has been done as the company has continually emphasized that the

dividend payout is safe and will not be cut. If the dividend changes, all bets are off. --

2.

Level 3

(LVLT)

: This company is keeping its place in stock purgatory as sentiment in the stock has turned decidedly negative. I am maintaining my opinion that the stock is too late to sell, but no new money should be started here. --

HOLD

3.

Intuitive Surgical

(ISRG) - Get Report

: The more-than 10% pullback in this stock is directly related to market weakness and has nothing to do with ISRG's great

fundamental outlook. --

BUY

4.

Diana Shipping

(DSX) - Get Report

: This play on global growth has been taken to the woodshed and shot. It now yields 6.7%. I believe in the global growth story, do you? --

BUY

5.

Sirius

(SIRI) - Get Report

: This story remains all about approval of the proposed

XM Satellite

(XSR)

deal. Some speculation of imminent Department of Justice approval sparked the action in this name. --

HOLD

6.

Crocs

(CROX) - Get Report

: With Crocs I present Exhibit A in what happens when growth stocks go bad. Ouch. Look for a

technical/dead-cat bounce to unload shares. --

SELL

7.

Garmin

(GRMN) - Get Report

: The company's locked in a vicious bidding war for

Tele Atlas

with

TomTom

, but it does not deserve to be down 45% in less than a month. --

BUY

8.

Google

(GOOG) - Get Report

: Shares traded down nearly $100 during this recent market downdraft. It is the same stock today it always has been, with the same strong fundamentals. --

BUY

9.

ExxonMobil

(XOM) - Get Report

: Everybody loves the mother ship of oil and energy, but it's starting to underperform. There are better opportunities elsewhere in the energy patch that are more levered to higher energy prices. Deepwater anybody? --

SELL

10.

EMC

(EMC)

: They own 86% of

VMWare

(VMW) - Get Report

. Enough said. --

BUY
