US consumer comfort rises to 19-year high on views of economy

The main consumer comfort gauge has climbed 4 points in three weeks, the best such pace since October 2015. The advance extends its steady rebound from a nine-month low of 58 in November.

Other measures of the consumer’s mood were mixed in December, with the University of Michigan index at a seven-month high and the Conference Board’s gauge down a fourth time in five months.
