Record Number of Small Business Owners Optimistic on Expansion

The percentage of small business owners who say that now is a good time to expand is the highest it's been in 32 years, according to a new survey.

Optimism among small companies in the U.S. rose more than forecast in January, fueled by a record number of owners who said now was a good time to expand, according to a National Federation of Independent Business survey released Tuesday.

…Six of the 10 components that make up the small-business optimism index increased in January, producing one of the strongest readings in the 45-year history of the survey. The figures show sustained, sturdy business sentiment since the November 2016 election. — Vince Golle, Bloomberg
