Apple will release its fourth quarter financial results at around 4:30 p.m. ET today. Analysts surveyed by Thomson First Call estimate that Apple will earn 18 cents a share on $2.15 billion in revenue. Some analysts, such as those at First Albany, expect Apple to come in a penny ahead of the consensus view with higher than expected revenue thanks to strong demand for the iPod and iMac G5. A conference call discussing the earnings will be streamed live via QuickTime. As always, MacMinute will bring you the highlights.
