=INDEX($A$1:$A$11,SMALL(IF("x"=$B$1:$B$11,ROW($B$1:$B$11)-MIN(ROW($B$1:$B$11))+1),ROW(1:1)))

=INDEX(A:A,MATCH("*",OFFSET($B$1,IF(ROW()=1,0,MATCH(OFFSET(F1,-1,0),A:A,0)),0,10000),0)+IF(ROW()=1,0,MATCH(OFFSET(F1,-1,0),A:A,0)))

you are most welcome.

also if your excel version is 2010 and above then you can use the aggregate function to acheive the same result  

like this  and this will not require the use of key stroke ( Control Shift Enter)
it can work with simply pressing (Enter) only.
=INDEX($A$1:$A$11,AGGREGATE(15,6,(ROW($B$1:$B$11)-MIN(ROW($B$1:$B$11))+1)/("x"=$B$1:$B$11),ROW(1:1)))
