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.

No one ever is defeated until defeat has been accepted as a reality.
-- Napoleon Hill

Spend each day trying to be a little wiser than you were when you woke up. Discharge your duties faithfully and well. Step by step you get ahead, but not necessarily in fast spurts. But you build discipline by preparing for fast spurts. Slug it out one inch at a time, day by day. At the end of the day - if you live long enough - most people get what they deserve.
-- Charlie Munger

"The most common cause of low prices is pessimism-some times pervasive, some times specific to a company or industry. We want to do business in such an environment, not because we like pessimism but because we like the prices it produces. It's optimism that is the enemy of the rational buyer."
1990 Chairman's Letter to Shareholders
-- Warren Buffett



Develop into a lifelong self-learner through voracious reading; cultivate curiosity and strive to become a little wiser every day.
-- Charlie Munger

"Diversification is a protection against ignorance. It makes very little sense for those who know what they're doing. No one ever gets rich on their seventh best idea!"
-- Warren Buffett

Say not, 'I have found the truth,' but rather, 'I have found a truth.'
-- Kahlil Gibran

Mimicking the herd invites regression to the mean.
-- Charlie Munger

Everybody's got a different circle of competence. The important thing is not how big the circle is. The important thing is staying inside the circle.
-- Warren Buffett

“So the question is not, Are people smart, are people sophisticated, do they have clever ways of looking at things, are they looking in the right areas? The question is, Are there periods when none of that matters because their human natures get the best of them ? “
-- Seth Klarman

"Charlie and I decided long ago that in an investment lifetime it's too hard to make hundreds of smart decisions. That judgement became ever more compelling as Berkshire's capital mushroomed and the universe of investments that could significantly affect our results shrank dramatically. Therefore, we adopted a strategy that required our being smart - and not too smart at that - only a very few times. Indeed, we'll now settle for one good idea a year. (Charlie says it's my turn.)"
-- Warren Buffett

"3. Don’t buy a stock just because you like the ‘tone’ of its annual report."
"The annual report may…reflect little more than the skill of the company’s public relations department in creating an impression about the company in the public mind."
-- Philip A. Fisher - "One of the don'ts for investors"

"Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago."
-- Warren Buffett

"6. What is the company doing to maintain or improve profit margins?"
-- Philip A. Fisher - "One of the Fifteen points to look for in a common stock"

Behind every stock is a company. Find out what it's doing.
-- Peter Lynch

"I never buy anything unless I can fill out on a piece of paper my reasons. I may be wrong, but I would know the answer to that. "I'm paying $32 billion today for the Coca Cola Company because..." If you can't answer that question, you shouldn't buy it. If you can answer that question, and you do it a few times, you'll make a lot of money."
-- Warren Buffett

You want to learn from experience, but you want to learn from other people's experience when you can.
-- Warren Buffett

"I am out of step with present conditions. When the game is no longer played your way, it is only human to say the new approach is all wrong, bound to lead to trouble, and so on. On one point, however, I am clear. I will not abandon a previous approach whose logic I understand ( although I find it difficult to apply ) even though it may mean foregoing large, and apparently easy, profits to embrace an approach which I don't fully understand, have not practiced successfully, and which possibly could lead to substantial permanent loss of capital."
- in a letter to his partners in the stock market frenzy of 1969.
-- Warren Buffett

What you're looking for is some way to get one good idea a year, and then ride it to its full potential. And that's very hard to do in an environment where people are shouting prices back and forth every five minutes.
-- Warren Buffett
