PREVIEW-Mexico May economic activity seen up 7.95 pct y/y

WHAT: Mexico May economic activity

WHEN: Tuesday, July 27, 9 a.m. (1400 GMT)

REUTERS FORECAST: Median +7.95 pct y/y May vs +7.24 pct y/y
April. Fourteen clients participated in the survey and the
range was +6.1 pct and +9.0 pct.

FACTORS TO WATCH: Mexico is slowly recovering from a deep
recession but cracks are showing in its factory-led rebound,
which is seen giving the central bank more room to leave
interest rates low into next year.

Analysts expect economic output jumped in May compared to
April (MXIGDP=ECI: ), which would show how far the country has
come from a year earlier. At the same time, with a slowdown
evident in manufacturing, the seasonally adjusted reading
(MXIGAE=ECI: ) could give a better idea of the health of the
overall economy.
