The following stocks were recently the 10 most-searched on TheStreet.com:

Citigroup ( C) led the way as the banks rallied on the latest government program intended to rescue the financial system. The Public-Private Investment Program for Legacy Assets plans to help banks rid themselves of toxic loans.

Bank of America ( BAC) also jumped on the news as investors are hoping the plan will spur private investors to buy the bad loans.

Next up was another bank, and like Citi and BofA, a component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average -- JPMorgan Chase ( JPM).

Even beleaguered AIG ( AIG) rose as the details from the program were released. The battered insurance company stands to gain if it can unload some of its legacy loans and securities.

Rounding out the top five was General Electric ( GE), which announced that it had signed a deal to build two nuclear reactors in India. The potential value of the deal was not disclosed.

Top 10 list regular Apple ( AAPL) is seen as a stock that could go higher even though it's rated a "hold" by TSC Ratings. The computer company is sitting on a large amount of cash and continues to have good sales, which points to strength.

Sports giant Nike ( NKE) is a new position in Cramer's Action Alerts PLUS Portfolio, and he is looking to add to his holdings. For more of what Cramer is trading, email us for a free trial!

Next to last on the list is carmaker Ford ( F), which plans to retire some $11 billion worth of debt.

Rounding out the group is Sun Microsystems ( JAVA). Last week, reports emerged that IBM ( IBM) might be considering a bid for the company, and interest in the stock has been elevated ever since.
