Japan April current account surplus less-than-expected 187.4 bln yen

TOKYO, June 9 (Reuters) - Japan's current account logged a
lower-than-expected surplus in April, government data showed on
Monday, as income gains from overseas investments narrowed and
the trade deficit widened.
    The surplus stood at 187.4 billion yen ($1.83 billion),
against a median forecast for 322.5 billion yen. It was the
third consecutive month of surpluses, the Ministry of Finance
data showed.
    The figure followed the prior month's surplus of 116.4
billion yen, and was down 76.1 percent compared with April last
year.
