Apple will host its fourth fiscal quarter and 2012 earnings conference calls on Thursday, October 25 after the market closes. Analysts will be watching Apple's numbers closely because fiscal 2012 saw the launch of the Retina Display iPad, as well as the iPhone 5 and new Mac laptops.
Apple's fourth quarter and annual earnings report: October 25
Apple previously warned that fourth quarter revenue would likely dip from US$35 billion down to $34 billion, and disappointed some analysts with its announcement that 5 million iPhone 5 units were sold during the first weekend of availability. Some of the pre-order units weren't counted in that total because they hadn't shipped yet, and will show up in the December quarter's figures.
As always, The Mac Observer will offer our earnings report coverage and analysis, so be sure to check in with us on Thursday, October 25.
Apple is currently trading in the pre-market at $662.65, up 3.26 (0.49%).
