WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- Small-business optimism edged up in July, helped by slight gains in the percentage of those planning to increase employment, those saying now's a good time to expand and those expecting real sales to be higher. The National Federation of Independent Business said its small-business optimism index rose 0.6 points to 94.1 -- still half a point below the Dec. 2007 reading, when the U.S. entered recession. The report is based on the responses of 1,615 randomly sampled small businesses in NFIB's membership.
