Apple will report fourth quarter and full-fiscal year results after the close Tuesday. Analysts are expecting another blockbuster quarter from the tech giant, with a consensus Q4 EPS estimate of $7.39, 59 percent higher than last year’s Q4 EPS of $4.64.
And for the first time in history, Apple’s sales may top $100 billion in a fiscal year. Analysts are projecting revenues of $109.5 billion dollars, up 68 percent from last year. The company has already brought in $80.0 billion in sales through the first 3 quarters of its fiscal year.
In fact, Apple reported $20.3 billion in sales during the fourth quarter last year and has reported at least 70 percent year-over-year growth in quarterly revenues in each of the first 3 quarters this year.
The Street, of course, isn’t wondering if Apple will cross the $100 billion revenue threshold, but how much above that mark 2011 sales will be.
