LONDON, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Consumer sentiment in the U.S. rose to the highest level in six years in May, according to Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan. The preliminary reading for June showed that consumer sentiment dipped slightly; however, it is still above 80 which augurs well for consumer goods companies. The improving U.S. economic outlook is expected to benefit consumer goods companies. However, the biggest growth driver will be emerging markets where rising income levels have boosted demand for consumer goods. On Tuesday, June 18, 2013, shares in consumer goods companies ended mostly lower even as the broader market moved higher. The major movers in the sector included Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc. (NASDAQ: GMCR), ConAgra Foods Inc. (NYSE: CAG), Tyson Foods Inc. (NYSE: TSN), and Hormel Foods Corporation (NYSE: HRL). All these companies are tracked by AAAResearchReports.com.
