MEXICO CITY, May 5 (Reuters) - Analysts lowered their
expectations for Mexican growth this year, cutting estimates for
the eighth month in a row,  
while also dialing back their inflation outlook, a Mexican
central bank survey showed on Tuesday.
    The central bank, which targets inflation of 3 percent with
a one percentage point tolerance zone each side, has held its
benchmark rate at 3 percent since a cut last June and it is
expected to hike later this year.
