Late Wednesday, word emerged from Cupertino, California that Apple will announce earnings for Q1 of its fiscal year later this month.
Scheduled for January 23rd, Apple’s earnings conference call will give company executives an opportunity to dazzle investors and analysts alike with sales data from the 2012 holiday shopping season.
Many Wall Street watchers believe that Apple may have recorded its biggest quarter in company history on the heels of the iPhone 5 and iPad mini launching to epic fanfare around the world.
Then again, Apple has on more than one occasion in recent years, fallen short of buoyant Wall Street expectations. As a result, some analysts aren’t hyping the earnings call as much as they might have at one time in the not so distant past.
Last fall Apple forecast revenue of $52 billion for the holiday quarter that ended December 31st.
