The Consumer Electronics Association says its Index of Consumer Technology Expectations slipped 2.4 points to 85.6 in February. The broader CEA Index of Consumer Expectations declined 2.6 points this month to 174.7, down from a record high in January. Both indexes are above where they were a year ago, however. "February’s results suggest that some uncertainty remains for consumers regarding near-term economic prospects," said Shawn DuBravac, CEA's chief economist.
