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.

"Value stocks are about as exciting as watching grass grow. But have you ever noticed just how much your grass grows in a week?"
-- Christopher H. Browne

Intelligent people make decisions based on opportunity costs.
-- Charlie Munger

"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 chief losses to investors come from the purchase of low quality securities at times of favorable business conditions"
-- Benjamin Graham

"If you expect to be a net saver during the next 5 years, should you hope for a higher or lower stock market during that period?"Many investors get this one wrong. Even though they are going to be net buyers of stocks for many years to come, they are elated when stock prices rise and depressed when they fall."This reaction makes no sense. Only those who will be sellers of equities in the near future should be happy at seeing stocks rise. Prospective purchasers should much prefer sinking prices."
- 1997 Chairman's Letter to Shareholders
-- Warren Buffett

"Don’t forget your Gilbert and Sullivan."
-- Philip A. Fisher - "One of the don'ts for investors"

"15. Does the company have a management of unquestionable integrity?"
-- Philip A. Fisher - "One of the Fifteen points to look for in a common stock"

"Once you do have a great business selling at a good price with a satisfactory margin of safety, don't panic if the stock price drops after you buy. Changes in stock price have nothing to do with risk."
-- Tweedy Browne

What you're doing when you invest is deferring consumption and laying money out now to get more money back at a later time. And there are really only two questions. One is how much you're going to get back, and the other is when.
-- Warren Buffett

I would rather be approximately right than precisely wrong.
--Wrren Buffet

Everybody engaged in complex work needs colleagues. Just the discipline of having to put your thoughts in order with somebody else is a very useful thing.
-- Charlie Munger

"I sought out Phil Fisher after reading his "Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits". When I met him, I was impressed by the man and his ideas. A thorough understanding of a business, by using Phil's techniques … enables one to make intelligent investment commitments."
--Warren Buffett

"I call investing the greatest business in the world because you never have to swing. You stand at the plate, the pitcher throws you General Motors at 47! U.S. Steel at 39! and nobody calls a strike on you. There's no penalty except opportunity lost. All day you wait for the pitch you like; then when the fielders are asleep, you step up and hit it."

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

One of the most common causes of failure is the habit of quitting when one is overtaken by temporary defeat.
-- Napoleon Hill

Very many people spend money in ways quite different from those that their natural tastes would enjoin, merely because the respect of their neighbors depends upon their possession of a good car and their ability to give good dinners. As a matter of fact, any man who can obviously afford a car but genuinely prefers travels or a good library will in the end be much more respected than if he behaved exactly like everyone else.
-- Bertrand Russel

"Don’t fail to consider time as well as price in buying a true growth stock."
-- Philip A. Fisher - "One of the don'ts for investors"

"1. Does the company have products or services with sufficient market potential to make possible a sizable increase in sales for at least several years?"
-- Philip A. Fisher - "One of the Fifteen points to look for in a common stock"
