English term or phrase:charging costs against earnings
Petrohawk earns a closer look because of an old red flag in the oilfield--full-cost accounting. Under this system, which the Securities & Exchange Commission tried, and failed, to ban in the early 1980s, companies lump all the expenses of finding and buying reserves into one big account and amortize it over time, instead of charging costs against earnings as they're incurred.
