Updated from 7:05 a.m. EDTContributing to the ugly down day on Tuesday was Lehman Brothers Holdings ( LEH). The bank has been scrambling to raise capital as losses mount from its mortgage holdings, and investors seem to think there are no bidders on the other end. McDonald's ( MCD) shareholders, on the other hand, are lovin' the sales figures from August. McDonald's said global sales at restaurants open at least 13 months rose a stronger-than-expected 8.5% in August. The jump is widely attributed to growth in Europe and the Olympics advertising blitz. On the oil front, prices fell to less than $103 a barrel on Tuesday. This is its lowest point since early April. Oil falling and a major bank possibly on the brink of collapse has the market on edge. With this in mind, we thought we'd take a look at Tuesday's most-searched stocks on TheStreet.com, including Freeport-McMoRan ( FCX) and Inverness Medical ( IMA), and see what Jim Cramer's had to say about them recently.
