    • After vaulting toward the close yesterday over a report that it was discussing selling nearly $1B in billboard assets, Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings (NYSE:CCO) has given it back and then some, down 8.3% today.
    • The company says it's closed a sale of five "non-strategic" outdoor markets to Lamar Advertising (NASDAQ:LAMR), for $458.5M in a pair of transactions.
    • One transaction covers Reno, Nev.; Des Moines, Iowa; and Seattle. Those markets generated $40.9M in net revenues (trailing 12 months).

    Clear Channel Outdoor (CCO +1.8%) CEO William Eccleshare says the company will look at buying CBS's (CBS +1.2%) billboard division, although he would be surprised if anyone will pay the $6B that the broadcaster reportedly wants for it. A deal would boost Clear Channel's sales by almost two thirds.
