MORRISTOWN, N.J. -- Credit Credit availability may be improving, according to a survey by the Financial Executives Institute.

In a poll of 718 institute members at the end of June, 48% of the bank and financial company executives expected more credit to be available at better terms in the second half.

Only 23% of current users of commercial credit had the same expectation.

As a whole, the chief financial officers and other corporate financial executives were optimistic. Three-fourths said both revenues and operating profits will increase during the next six months.
