US: Michigan Consumer sentiment improved more than expected

US consumer sentiment was brighter than expected in June. Consumer sentiment, surveyed by the University of Michigan, rose to 63.9 points from 59.2 points in the previous month, the university said after preliminary estimates. Economists had expected only 60.0 points. Both consumer expectations and assessment of the situation improved.
