TABLE-Analysts raise inflation forecast for Mexico, lower growth outlook

MEXICO CITY, Feb 1 (Reuters) - Analysts raised their
expectations for inflation and lowered growth estimates for
Mexico this year, a Mexican central bank survey showed on
Wednesday.
    The central bank, which targets inflation of 3 percent with
a one percentage point tolerance zone each side, raised its main
interest rate five times last year to prop up the weak peso.
