This investing search engine is just a google based search restricted to a few specific sites (with a lot of information) where investing ideas have been discussed among retail investors. It is also restricted to specialised or general news sites where information about value investors is gathered and discussed as well as the companies where they invest at. A couple of example sites are yahoo finance where a lot of information is discussed every day about investing and companies and gurufocus where, among other things, value investors' quarterly transactions are being closely followed.

"14. Does the management talk freely to investors about its affairs when things are going well but "clam up" when troubles and disappointments occur?"
-- Philip A. Fisher - "One of the Fifteen points to look for in a common stock"

“I don’t have a problem with guilt about money. The way I see it is that my money represents an enormous number of claim checks on society. It’s like I have these little pieces of paper that I can turn into consumption. If I wanted to, I could hire 10,000 people to do nothing but paint my picture every day for the rest of my life. And the GNP would go up. But the utility of the product would be zilch, and I would be keeping those 10,000 people from doing AIDS research, or teaching, or nursing. I don’t do that though. I don’t use very many of those claim checks. There’s nothing material I want very much. And I’m going to give virtually all of those claim checks to charity when my wife and I die.”
-- Warren Buffett

If you don't study any companies, you have the same success buying stocks as you do in a poker game if you bet without looking at your cards.

"5. Does the company have a worthwhile profit margin?"
-- Philip A. Fisher - "One of the Fifteen points to look for in a common stock"

“My family won’t receive huge amounts of my net worth. That doesn’t mean they’ll get nothing. My children have already received some money from me and Susie and will receive more. I still believe in the philosophy – FORTUNE quoted me saying this 20 years ago – that a very rich person should leave his kids enough to do anything but not enough to do nothing.”
-- Warren Buffett

"5. Don’t quibble over eights and quarters."
"If the stock seems the right one and the price seems reasonably attractive at current levels, buy ‘at the market.’"

Find out what you really love to do, and then find a way to make a good living doing it.
-- Napoleon Hill

"If you took out our top fifteen decisions, we would have a pretty average record. It wasn’t hyperactivity, but a hell of a lot of patience. You stuck to your principles and when opportunities came along, you pounced on them with vigor."
-- Charlie Munger

"It's got to be the best intellectual exercise out there. You're seeing through new situations every ten minutes. In the stock market you don't base your decisions on what the market is doing, but on what you think is rational. Bridge is about weighing gain/loss ratios. You're doing calculations all the time." Forbes. June 2, 1997.[1]
-- Warren Buffett

"8. Does the company have outstanding executive relations?"
-- Philip A. Fisher - "One of the Fifteen points to look for in a common stock"

"A public-opinion poll is no substitute for thought."
-- Warren Buffett

"Our future rates of gain will fall far short of those achieved in the past. Berkshire's capital base is now simply too large to allow us to earn truly outsized returns. If you believe otherwise, you should consider a career in sales but avoid one in mathematics (bearing in mind that there are really only three kinds of people in the world: those who can count and those who can't). "
- 1998 Chairman's Letter to Shareholders
-- Warren Buffett
