Apple will make its fourth quarter and end of year financial results conference call available online as an audio rebroadcast using QuickTime 5.

The company will host the event on Wednesday, October 16, at 2pm PST (10pm UK time). The QuickTime stream will be available from Apple's investor relations Web site.

In the absence of any earnings warning from the company, it appears likely that Apple may boast a small profit for the current quarter.

The company's quarter ended September 30.
