Richard Evans spent 26 years in the military, Business and Management as well as marketing within the retail, transportation, education and health care fields. He now lives in Las Vegas. He writes extensively, having several hundred articles published on financial and travel topics as well as one guide book, with the help of two part time researchers. His personal investment philosophy is "complicated." He combines a selection of value/growth/dividend companies, in his best Warren Buffet imitation, along with a significant element to take advantage of arbitrage and other short term opportunities in the market. Richard Evans concentrates on Energy companies, dividend opportunities, special opportunities and arbitrage, and because he does live in Las Vegas he keeps a weather eye on the Gaming Industry.
