Consumer Sentiment in U.S. Falls to Lowest Level Since April

Confidence among consumers declined to a five-month low in September as Americans’ views on the economy dimmed.

The Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan final index of sentiment decreased to 77.5 this month from 82.1 in August. The median estimate in a Bloomberg survey called for a drop to 78, after a preliminary reading of 76.8.
