Level 3 Communications reported fourth-quarter 2007 earnings this morning that showed improvement in the company's ongoing profit loss. For Q4, the carrier posted a $91 million loss that was far better than the $174 million loss it reported for the same quarter in 2006. Level 3 also did not announce any job cuts, at least as of this writing Thursday morning.

But, Janco Partners analyst Donna Jaegers, who follows Level 3 closely, suggested that would not be the case.
