PREVIEW-Mexico 4th qtr GDP seen up 1.2 pct vs pvs qtr

WHAT: Mexico 4th quarter gross domestic product data

WHEN: Monday, Feb. 22 at 9:00 a.m. (1500 GMT)

REUTERS FORECAST: +1.2 pct qtr/qtr median forecast of six
analysts; -2.4 pct yr/yr median forecast of 15 analysts

FACTORS TO WATCH: Mexico’s economic recovery continued
although at a slower pace than during the third quarter when
growth of 2.9 percent put an end to a deep recession.

A rebound in car exports to the United States likely
powered the economy between October and December, but gross
domestic product was still seen lower than a year earlier,
underscoring the depth of Mexico’s slowdown.
