    The stock is going up in the last hour because it was recommended by somebody at CNBC. Because it's already down 30% the market decline is already in that numbers. She doesn't care that most media and advertising companies are down between 60 to 90% this year and thinks it is a recession proof company. Haha

    Interesting that there are so few conversations about LAMR. This is an interesting REIT that is completely different from 99% of the others. In that respect it adds diversification to a REIT portfolio. It has grown its dividend by about 10% each year for the previous two. Its revenue is growing at about 6% annually. It is a somewhat volatile stock which means that when the price is right it is a bargain. At about 65 a share it screams bargain. At that price the yield 5.6% not bad for a company growing the dividend 10% annually.

    Everytime I've driven on the highways lately, I've seen almost every single Lamar billboard with an advertisement on it, maybe 1 in 20 or 30 did not have an active ad on it. They can't be losing so much revenue that it threatens their business and slashing the dividend was a smart move to reserve cash for the uncertainty of the pandemic, IMO.

    I'm in at average price of $65.74.. that's a roughly 6.1% dividend yield too!

    Haven't added much lately but I intend to never ever sell this thing.

    Why is this stock down 43 percent? Was there a split? There's no news of any kind that I can find on here. I realize the market is down a lot to day but 43 percent is excessive even for a day like this.

    LAMR could take the opportunity to buy CCO cheap and consolidate the Billboard business

    I've got to believe that a Presidential Election should mean a lot of spending on billboard ads at the national, state and local levels.

    With the end to inflation no where in site! A 4% dividend is a beginning for treading water just below the surface. Some price appreciation would be need to break even from a purchasing point of view. A 3% rise with the 4% dividend could do the trick. However this REIT belongs in an ataxable account, where the 4% never sees Uncle Sam's hand!

    I wouldn't be surprised if 1/3 to 1/2 of this company's "displays" are in the hospitality and tourism sector given all the blue type exit signs they have for restaurants, hotels and attractions on interstate highways, and these are the businesses in the most trouble from the pandemic.

    Does anyone expect the coronavirus to kill everyone on earth? Has the Coronavirus destroyed money in the economy like the Mortgage crisis of 2008?
