Lamar Advertising Co Research Report

Lamar Advertising pleased investors with its fourth quarter results, with net
income rising 13 percent. The company's revenue also grew 6 percent due to
increased advertising spending from the automobile and housing industry. Going
forward, the company is actively considering an election to real estate
investment trust (REIT) status. The company has already submitted a request to
the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) last November and is waiting for a
favorable response to decide to proceed with a REIT election, subject to the
approval of the company's board of directors. Converting into a REIT would
mean higher dividends for investors. Furthermore, Lamar is projecting a bright
outlook for the first quarter of 2013. The company expects revenue of $282
million to $285 million, as compared to the $279 million forecast from
analysts. The Full Research Report on Lamar Advertising Co - including full
