Updated from 7:01 a.m. EDT

Thursday ended on a strong note, with stocks rallying hard off of the day's lows. The economic news certainly wasn't great, but the market has likely anticipated this.

In financial stocks, Merrill Lynch ( MER), soon to be bought by Bank of America ( BAC), posted a steeper-than-expected $7.5 billion third-quarter loss. But the stock rallied, as did other financials, including Bank of America and Wells Fargo ( WFC).

The real strength, however, came from the typical big names, with Microsoft ( MSFT), Intel ( INTC), Exxon ( XOM) and Pfizer ( PFE) all rallying on heavy volume.

With volatility near all time highs, where do we go from here?

With this in mind, we thought we'd take a look at some of the stocks people have been searching for on TheStreet.com, such as Kimberly-Clark ( KMB) and 3M ( MMM), and see what Jim Cramer's had to say about them lately.
