US Consumer Shows Renewed Enthusiasm in April

What is the consumer confidence index US Consumer Shows Renewed Enthusiasm in April
Patty Aguilar | 26 April, 2018, 01:47

"Consumer confidence increased moderately in April after a decline in March", said Lynn Franco, Director of Economic Indicators at The Conference Board.

BNP Paribas senior economist Jeff Schultz expected the consumer confidence index to have improved to a level of negative in the first quarter but added that there remained scope for it to turn "modestly positive" towards the middle of the year. Consumer sentiment has continued to be resilient even in the midst of the recent uncertainty stoked by anti-trade rhetoric and stock market volatility, and consumers' perception of future economic conditions continue to be favorable. Business confidence and the purchasing managers' index dipped last month after it surged at the start of the year. Consumers' short-term expectations also improved, with the% of consumers expecting their incomes to decline over the coming months reaching its lowest level since December 2000 (6.0%). The sentiment index rose to 128.7 in the month, as compared with consensus expectations of falling to 126.

US consumers displayed surprisingly more confidence in April mainly on the back of a rebound in short-term optimism, data suggests.

According to FNB, the dramatic increase in consumer confidence during the first quarter of 2018 signals a substantial improvement in consumers' willingness to spend, which will boost the economy. The percentage of consumers claiming jobs are "plentiful" declined from 39.5% to 38.1%, while those claiming jobs are "hard to get" also declined, from 15.7% to 15.2%.

Although positive political and economic developments also helped to shore up consumer confidence in 2004, the announcement that South Africa would host the 2010 World Cup Soccer Tournament in all likelihood contributed significantly to the large leap in the CCI at the time, it said. The proportion expecting more jobs in the months ahead increased from 18.9% to 19.5%, while those anticipating fewer jobs remained at 12.5%. The percentage of consumers anticipating business conditions will improve over the next six months increased from 23.2% to 24.5%.
