Consumer sentiment up, above expectations

It may be a small sign but still positive news.

U.S. consumer sentiment rose in early September to the strongest in three months with growing expectations the economy will improve, a survey showed Friday.

The Reuters/University of Michigan Surveys of Consumers said its preliminary index of sentiment for September rose to 70.2, the highest since June, from 65.7 in August. This was above economists’ median expectation of a reading of 67.3, according to a Reuters poll.
