Apple's fourth quarter 2004/full year 2004 financial results will be announced Wednesday October 13 at 2pm PT (10pm BST).

Pre-announcement analyst sentiment on Apple's performance in the quarter remains positive, with its share price trading near the top of its 52-week average.

Consensus opinion appears to favour a view that Apple will achieve its targets in the quarter, and will benefit from a migration to Macs generated by the success of its iPod music player.

Apple's financial results call will be webcast by the company in QuickTime format.
