Swedish translation:direkt(a) XXX
Explanation:
It's an Americanism; short for whatever "direct XXX" fits the context. It normally refers to the previous sentence. See for example: http://www.georgetown.edu/grad/mcgrad/gac/m20000310.pdf

Possible XXXs:
- kapital
- kostnad
- bidrag
- inkomst
- utgift
etc.

Give us more contexts and you will get a more precise answer.
