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.

"Given the recent terror and talk of war, we will focus on point two in this chapter.
2. Don’t be afraid of buying on a war scare.
At the conclusion of all actual fighting—regardless of whether it was World War I, World War II, or Korea—most stocks were selling at levels vastly higher than prevailed before there was any thought of war at all. Furthermore, at least ten times in the last twenty-two years, news has come of other international crises which gave threat of major war. In every instance, stocks dipped sharply on the fear of war and rebounded sharply as the war scare subsided.
War is always bearish on money. To sell a stock at the threatened or actual outbreak of hostilities so as to get into cash is extreme financial lunacy. Actually just the opposite should be done. If an investor has about decided to buy a particular common stock and the arrival of a full-blown war scare starts knocking down the price, he should ignore the scare psychology of the moment and definitely begin buying."
-- Philip A. Fisher - "One of the don'ts for investors"
