U.S. consumer sentiment rose in April to its highest in nine months as both current conditions and expectations brightened, a survey released on Friday showed.
The Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan's preliminary April reading on the overall index of consumer sentiment came in at 82.6, the highest since July, compared with the final reading of 80.0 in March.
It was also above the median forecast of 81.0 among economists polled by Reuters.
"Economic news reaching consumers grew more favorable in early April," survey director Richard Curtin said in a statement.
"Net reports on changes in employment were more favorable, and negative mentions about current economic policies eased."
The survey's barometer of current economic conditions rose to 97.1 from 95.7 and above a forecast of 96.3.
