Live Blog: Apple fourth-quarter earnings conference call
Apple holds its quarterly conference call with Wall Street analysts Thursday, this time to go over the numbers for the company’s fiscal fourth quarter. We’ll have live coverage of that 2 p.m. conference call right here on Macworld.
The fiscal fourth quarter covers the three-month period ending on September 29, a time when Apple introduced the new iPhone 5. The company’s Mountain Lion update for OS X also arrived during the quarter.
Analysts are looking for Apple to report sales of $35.8 billion for the quarter and tally earnings per share of $8.75, according to consensus estimates. That’s ahead of Apple’s guidance from July, when the company told analysts to expect $34 billion in revenue and earnings of $7.65 a share.
Apple will announce earnings after the stock market closes at 1:30 p.m. PT; our live blog will begin after that in advance of the 2 p.m. call.
