      RESEARCH ALERT-Merrill cuts price target for SPX

      NEW YORK, Aug 5 (Reuters) - Merrill Lynch on Monday said it cut its 2003 year-end price target for industrial products maker SPX Corp. (NYSE:SPW - News), citing weakness in the overall market.

      The firm lowered the price target to $150 from $175 but noted that is still about 50 percent above current trading levels. SPX shares closed Friday on the New York Stock Exchange at $98.50.

      Merrill said it believes SPX's acquisition of Balcke Cooling Products, which closed last week, will add 30 cents a share to earnings during the year after the merger.

      The firm said it is not raising its earnings forecast, however, due mainly to economic uncertainty. It sees profits of $8.88 a share for 2002 and $10.25 for 2003, up from $6.40 in 2001.
