A reminder: Apple is scheduled to announce the results of the company’s fiscal fourth quarter (Q4 08) and to conduct a conference call to discuss the company’s results on Tuesday, October 21, 2008 at 2pm PT/5pm ET.
MacDailyNews will be covering the conference call via live notes later today. The live coverage will appear at the top of our home pages shortly before 5pm ET.
MacDailyNews Take: It’s all about the guidance. And, again, Apple should use the current turmoil on Wall Street as a convenient excuse to stop giving hard guidance and never resume the practice.
The link to the QuickTime stream of the conference call is here.
MacDailyNews Note: Analysts’ consensus estimates for Apple’s Q4 08 currently call for $1.11 EPS, on revenue of $8.05 billion, or 29.4% YOY sales growth. Peter Oppenheimer, Apple’s CFO, has provided guidance of “about $7.8 billion” and earnings per diluted share of “about $1.00.”
