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.

"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

"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

"The key to investing is not assessing how much an industry is going to affect society, or how much it will grow, but rather determining the competitive advantage of any given company and, above all, the durability of that advantage."
- July 1999 at Herb Allen's Sun Valley, Idaho Retreat
-- Warren Buffett



And the wise ones bet heavily when the world offers them that opportunity. They bet big when they have the odds. And the rest of the time they don't. It's just that simple.
-- Charlie Munger

Men are born ignorant, not stupid. They are made stupid by education.
-- Bertrand Russel

-- Philip A. Fisher

"How do you feel? Forbes asked.
"Like an oversexed guy in a whorehouse. Now is the time to invest and get rich."
-- Warren Buffett

I think track records are very important. If you start early trying to have a perfect one in some simple thing like honesty, you're well on your way to success in this world.

We try more to profit from always remembering the obvious than from grasping the esoteric.
-- Charlie Munger

"Of one thing be certain: if a CEO is enthused about a particularly foolish acquisition, both his internal staff and his outside advisors will come up with whatever projections are needed to justify his stance. Only in fairy tales are emperors told that they are naked."
-- Warren Buffett

"I just don't see anything available that gives any reasonable hope of delivering such a good year and I have no desire to grope around, hoping to 'get lucky' with other people's money. I am not attuned to this market environment, and I don't want to spoil a decent record by trying to play a game I don't understand just so I can go out a hero."
-- Warren Buffett

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

You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.
-- Kahlil Gibran

The very term "value investing" is redundant. What is investing if it is not the act of seeking value at least sufficient to justify the amount paid? Consciously paying more for a stock than its calculated value - in the hope that it can soon be sold for a still-higher price - should be labeled speculation (which is neither illegal, immoral nor -- in our view -- financially fattening).
-- Warren Buffett

When you have solved all the mysteries of life you long for death, for it is but another mystery of life.
-- Kahlil Gibran

"I will tell you how to become rich. Close the doors. Be fearful when others are greedy. Be greedy when others are fearful."

-- 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.
-- Peter Lynch

"If you don't know jewellery, know the jeweller."
-- Warren Buffett

"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?"
