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 conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking."
-- John Kenneth Galbraith

"Investing in a market where people believe in efficiency is like playing bridge with someone who has been told it doesn’t do any good to look at the cards."
-- Warren Buffett on the efficient market hypothesis

“You only have to do a very few things right in your life so long as you don’t do too many things wrong.”
-- Warren Buffett



If all you succeed in doing in life is getting rich by buying little pieces of paper, it's a failed life. Life is more than being shrewd in wealth accumulation.
-- Charlie Munger

"Price is what you pay. Value is what you get."
-- Warren Buffett

"Our favourite holding period is forever."
-Letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders, 1988

"With a quizzically raised eyebrow, Mr. Christopher H. Browne described efficient-market theory, which holds that stock prices reflect all available information, as "garbage in, garbage out." When another investment manager claimed to have made 250 company visits in the preceding year, Mr. Browne muttered, "What did you do? Drive by and wave?"
-- Christopher H. Browne

The ideal business is one that earns very high returns on capital and that keeps using lots of capital at those high returns. That becomes a compounding machine.
-- Warren Buffett

"I really like my life. I've arranged my life so that I can do what I want."
-- 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

"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

"If I was running $1 million today, or $10 million for that matter, I'd be fully invested. Anyone who says that size does not hurt investment performance is selling. The highest rates of return I've ever achieved were in the 1950s. I killed the Dow. You ought to see the numbers. But I was investing peanuts then. It's a huge structural advantage not to have a lot of money. I think I could make you 50% a year on $1 million. No, I know I could. I guarantee that."
"Homespun Wisdom from the 'Oracle of Omaha'", BusinessWeek, 5 July 1999.

"It’s not whether you’re right or wrong that’s important, but how much money you make when you’re right and how much you lose when you’re wrong."
-- George Soros

You can change behavior by incentives, but you can't usually change behavior by sermons, although people try every Sunday.
-- Warren Buffett

The safest way to try to get what you want is to try to deserve what you want. It's such a simple idea. It's the golden rule. You want to deliver to the world what you would buy if you were on the other end.
-- Charlie Munger

Beware the investment activity that produces applause; the great moves are usually greeted by yawns.
-- Warren Buffett

"Judging how well things are doing by how the stock price is doing is the wrong way to do it. That’s the fool’s way."
-- Charlie Munger

"One of the ironies of the stock market is the emphasis on activity. Brokers, using terms such as 'marketability' and 'liquidity," sing the praises of companies with high share turnover... but investors should understand that what is good for the croupier is not good for the customer. A hyperactive stock market is the pick pocket of enterprise."
-- Warren Buffett
