Consumer confidence rebounds in February
NEW YORK – Americans' confidence in the economy rebounded in February, reversing three straight months of declines as shoppers began adjusting to a payroll tax hike last month.
The New York-based Conference Board says Tuesday that its Consumer Confidence Index stands at 69.6, up from a revised 58.4 in January. Economists had expected 60.5, according to research firm FactSet.
It was the highest reading since November's 71.5. Confidence has fallen since then as shoppers were worried about growing economic uncertainty.
