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.

"It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently."
-- Warren Buffett

"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"

Knowledge of the self is the mother of all knowledge. So it is incumbent on me to know my self, to know it completely, to know its minutiae, its characteristics, its subtleties, and its very atoms.

The arithmetic makes it plain that inflation is a far more devastating tax than anything that has been enacted by our legislature. The inflation tax has a fantastic ability to simply consume capital. It makes no difference to a widow with her savings in a 5 percent passbook account whether she pays 100 percent income tax on her interest income during a period of zero inflation or pays no income taxes during years of 5 percent inflation. Either way, she is 'taxed' in a manner that leaves her no real income whatsoever. Any money she spends comes right out of capital. She would find outrageous a 120 percent income tax but doesn't seem to notice that 5 percent inflation is the economic equivalent.
-- Warren Buffett

"I look for businesses in which I think I can predict what they’re going to look like in ten to fifteen years time. Take Wrigley’s chewing gum. I don’t think the internet is going to change how people chew gum."
-- Warren Buffett

A stock market decline is as routine as a January blizzard in Colorado. If you're prepared, it can't hurt you. A decline is a great opportunity to pick up the bargains left behind by investors who are fleeing the storm in panic.
-- Peter Lynch

"If a business does well, the stock eventually follows."
-- 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

To invest successfully over a lifetime does not require a stratospheric IQ, unusual business insights, or inside information. What's needed is a sound intellectual framework for making decisions and the ability to keep emotions from corroding that framework.
-- Warren Buffett

I would rather be approximately right than precisely wrong.

"Never invest in any idea you can’t illustrate with a crayon."
