The latest results are projected to be lower than last year's fourth quarter results of $1.62 a share on revenue of $16.996 billion.
Investors will be curious to see how much of an impact the slowing Chinese economy will have on the company's latest financial data as sales in the previous quarter were hurt by the shift away from an economy based on manufacturing capabilities to a services-oriented economy, according to Forbes.
