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.

"Berkshire's arbitrage activities differ from those of many arbitrageurs. First, we participate in only a few, and usually very large, transactions each year. Most practitioners buy into a great many deals perhaps 50 or more per year. With that many irons in the fire, they must spend most of their time monitoring both the progress of deals and the market movements of the related stocks. This is not how Charlie nor I wish to spend our lives. (What's the sense in getting rich just to stare at a ticker tape all day?)"
-- Warren Buffett

"An irresistable footnote: in 1971, pension fund managers invested a record 122% of net funds available in equities - at full prices they couldn't buy enough of them. In 1974, after the bottom had fallen out, they committed a then record low of 21% to stocks."

“You do things when the opportunities come along. I’ve had periods in my life when I’ve had a bundle of ideas come along, and I’ve had long dry spells. If I get an idea next week, I’ll do something. If not, I won’t do a damn thing.”
-- Warren Buffett



"Investing is the one sphere of life and activity where victory, security and success is always to the minority and never to the majority."
-- John Maynard Keynes

"We will reject interesting opportunities rather than over-leverage our balance sheet."
- Berkshire Hathaway Owners Manual
-- Warren Buffett

If you understand the business, you don't need to own very many of them. If you have a harem of 40 women, you never get to know any of them very well.
-- Warren Buffett

"The more the theory of efficient markets is believed, the less efficient the markets become."
-- George Soros

The majority of people permit relatives, friends, and the public at large to so influence them that they cannot live their own lives, because they fear criticism.
-- Napoleon Hill

Money, to some extent, sometimes lets you be in more interesting environments. But it can't change how many people love you or how healthy you are.
-- Warren Buffett

"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). "

"As a net saver, you should hope for depressed stock prices!"
-- Warren Buffett

Riches do not respond to wishes. They respond only to definite plans, backed by definite desires, through constant persistence.
-- Napoleon Hill

"Don’t overstress diversification."
-- Philip A. Fisher - "One of the don'ts for investors"

Owning stocks is like having children - don't get involved with more than you can handle.
-- Peter Lynch

There are no limitations to the mind except those we acknowledge.
-- Napoleon Hill

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

"We want to do business in times of pessimism, not because we like pessimism but because we like the prices it produces. It's optimism that’s the enemy of the rational buyer."
-- Warren Buffett

"The strategy we've adopted precludes our following standard diversification dogma. Many pundits would therefore say the strategy must be riskier than that employed by more conventional investors. We disagree. We believe that a policy of portfolio concentration may well decrease risk if it raises, as it should, both the intensity with which an investor thinks about a business and the comfort-level he must feel with its economic characteristics before buying into it."
