POLL-Mexico's Cemex forecast to post higher net profit despite sales drop
MEXICO CITY, April 23 (Reuters) - Mexican cement maker Cemex CMXCPO.MX is expected to report this week that its first quarter net profit more than doubled compared with the year-earlier period, according to analysts polled by Reuters, helped by lower exchange rate losses.

Cemex will release its results on Thursday before the market opens.
