Lower Of Cost Or Market (Locom):

An accounting method used to establish the dollar amount at which assets are recorded on a savings association's books. The amount established is the lower of the cost of the asset or the current market value. Under this method, assets must be written down if the market value falls below the cost. They may also be written up but not above their amortized cost.
