Small Business Confidence at Six-Year High

Small-business owners are feeling pretty confident this year, according to a survey from Wells Fargo and Gallup. In fact, optimism among small-business owners is at the highest level in six years.
The quarterly survey of small-business owners, conducted at the beginning of April, shows that the overall Wells Fargo/Gallup Small Business Index score moved to positive 47 in April, up two points from January.

The survey reported that one reason businesses’ outlooks have improved is companies are more positive about their ability to obtain credit.
