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.

"The Stock Market is designed to transfer money from the Active to the Patient."
-- Warren Buffett

“If you are a value investor, you have to be a long-term investor. And if you accept that, then you understand that you will lag your peers or the benchmark at times,” Mr. Eveillard said. “The truth is, it's warmer inside the herd. It's moving outside the herd that is hard to do.”
-- Jean-Marie Eveillard



"The important thing is to keep playing, to play against weak opponents and to play for big stakes."
- Nov. 2002 talking with students at Gaston Hall

“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

"3. Don’t buy a stock just because you like the ‘tone’ of its annual report."

Whenever I read about some company undertaking a cost-cutting program, I know it's not a company that really knows what costs are all about. Spurts don't work in this area. The really good manager does not wake up in the morning and say, "This is the day I'm going to cut costs," any more than he wakes up and decides to practice breathing.
-- Warren Buffett

Investing is putting out money to be sure of getting more money back later at an appropriate rate.

"The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea on them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of a doubt, what is laid before him."
-- Leo Tolstoy - used as the intro to "The Big Short"

"Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing."
-- Warren Buffett

"You ought to be able to explain why you're taking the job you're taking, why you're making the investment you're making, or whatever it may be. And if it can't stand applying pencil to paper, you'd better think it through some more. And if you can't write an intelligent answer to those questions, don't do it."
-- Warren Buffett

"Investors should remember that excitement and expenses are their enemies. And if they insist on trying to time their participation in equities, they should try to be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful."

Times Online, 28 June, 2007.

"Wall Street is the only place that people ride to work in a Rolls Royce to get advice from those who take the subway."
-- Warren Buffett

Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.
-- Kahlil Gibran

No man can succeed in a line of endeavor which he does not like. The most essential step in the marketing of personal services is that of selecting an occupation into which you can throw yourself wholeheartedly.
-- Napoleon Hill
