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.

“In short, we believe market efficiency is a fine academic theory that is unlikely ever to bear meaningful resemblance to the real world of investing.”
-- Seth Klarman

Never, ever, think about something else when you should be thinking about the power of incentives.
-- Charlie Munger

Most of us go through life as failures, because we are waiting for the "time to be right" to start doing something worthwhile. Do not wait. The time will never be "just right." Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.
-- Napoleon Hill



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

"It's far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price."
-- Warren Buffett

Too often, a vast collection of possessions ends up possessing its owner. The asset I most value, aside from health, is interesting, diverse, and long-standing friends.
-- Warren Buffett

“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

"The only function of economic forecasting is to make astrology look respectable."

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.
- 1993 Chairman's Letter to Shareholders
-- Warren Buffett

"The speed at which a business success is recognized, furthermore, is not that important as long as the company's intrinsic value is increasing at a satisfactory rate. In fact, delayed recognition can be an advantage: It may give us the chance to buy more of a good thing at a bargain price."
-- Warren Buffett

"I never buy anything unless I can fill out on a piece of paper my reasons. I may be wrong, but I would know the answer to that. "I'm paying $32 billion today for the Coca Cola Company because..." If you can't answer that question, you shouldn't buy it. If you can answer that question, and you do it a few times, you'll make a lot of money."
-- Warren Buffett

The sillier the market's behavior, the greater the opportunity for the business-like investor.
-- Warren Buffett

"[Gold] gets dug out of the ground in Africa, or someplace. Then we melt it down, dig another hole, bury it again and pay people to stand around guarding it. It has no utility. Anyone watching from Mars would be scratching their head."
Harvard, 1998
-- 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

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