Updated from 7:01 a.m. ESTStocks bounced around but ended flat on Wednesday. After a 4% market slide the day prior, investors were uninspired by Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke's deteriorating economic outlook and President Obama's plan to revive the housing market. The Federal Reserve cut its 2009 economic forecast, predicting that the economy will shrink by 0.5% to 1.3% and that unemployment will rise by 8.5% to 8.8%. Meanwhile, Bernanke predecessor Alan Greenspan made headlines when he said that the temporary nationalization of banks could be the "least bad" way out of the crisis. The news sent weathered bank stocks such as Bank of America ( BAC - Get Report) and Citigroup ( C - Get Report) near their bear-market lows. 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 NiSource ( NI - Get Report)) and see what Jim Cramer's had to say about them lately.
