REFILE-TABLE-Japan business mood up, points to better BOJ tankan -Reuters Tankan

Tankan@ (Refiles to remove extraneous text) TOKYO, June 20 (Reuters) - Confidence among Japanese manufacturers bounced in June to match a decade-high level recorded in April and is expected to rise for several months, a Reuters survey found, providing more evidence of economic recovery. The Reuters Tankan's sentiment indexes subtract the percentage of companies saying conditions are poor from those saying conditions are good. A positive number means optimists outnumber pessimists. Following is a table of indexes for key sectors, and a comparison with the central bank's quarterly tankan:
