st: geometric mean saved results

I'm having a great deal of difficulty trying to do
anovas, ranksums, regressions, etc. on the geometric
mean of a continuous variable--just capturing the
saved results following a means command ofcourse does
not work, as below with ranksum:

.quietly means fp3
.local `gmeanfp3' = r(mean_g)
.ranksum `gmeanfp3' if `1'~=9999, by(`1')

which gives me an error message of "_= invalid name". 

Any suggestions at all would be much appreciated.
